No Runs
Morkel to Sangakkara. Yorker, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock. South Africa have managed to defend a low total and this is a morale boosting victory for the visitors. The bowlers did a superb job and the fielding was equally as good. The South Africans fought bravely and their discipline out their this evening was good. Sangakkara ran out of batting partners and in the end the pressure was too much and the homes side fell 12 runs short of the target. JP Duminy was on top form and managed to bag three scalps in his four overs. The Proteas will definitely want to take this momentum into the next game.
