31.5
No Runs
Herath to Phangiso. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Herath. Phangiso danced down the track and was beaten by the flight. Sangakkarra collected the ball and removed the bails with Phangiso stranded in the middle. Sri Lanka dominted this match in all areas. South Africa were very poor in the field and they did not bowl very well. Sangakkara took full advantage of this and played to his strengths which enabled him to go on and score a personal best of 169. The home side then came out to bowl and started off like a house on fire when Malinga dismissed Ingram with the very first ball. Sri Lanka kept the pressure on and South Africa lost wickets at regular intervals. The home side lead the five match series 1 but after this performance the vistors will definitely come back fighting.
