MAN-OF-THE-MATCH

Sri Lanka's Tillakaratne Dilshan received the best player award for his all round performance with bat and ball. He scored 86 runs off 90 balls and took 3/40 in 10 overs.

09 Jul 2014

Thanks for tuning in!

The Sri Lankans have levelled the three-match series at 1-1 heading into Saturday's final ODI in Hambantota.

The Proteas were simply undone by a spin barrage today. Question marks remain over their ability to chase substantial scores down on slow pitches...

09 Jul 2014

RESULT: Sri Lanka win by 87 runs

09 Jul 2014

South Africa all out for 180 in 38.1 overs.

09 Jul 2014

WICKET! Replays show the ball would have clipped the stumps so it stays with the umpire's call. Steyn is out for 23.

GAME OVER!

09 Jul 2014

Mendis traps Steyn LBW, but he reviews the decision...

09 Jul 2014

Bizarrely Malinga's yorker went under Steyn's bat, spun back in and hit his pads. It was not in front of the stumps though so he was given not out...

09 Jul 2014

OVERS 38: SA 180/9

09 Jul 2014

NOT OUT. Malinga's yorker would have just missed the stumps...

09 Jul 2014

A massive LBW appeal from Malinga against Steyn. Umpire Nigel Llong says not out.

Sri Lanka have referred the decision...

09 Jul 2014

Morkel was out for a duck, by the way.

Imran Tahir is the last man in. It's all over I'm afraid...

09 Jul 2014

WICKET! Morkel is bowled by a slower-ball yorker from Malinga.

SA 180/9 after 37.4 overs.

09 Jul 2014

Amla wasn't very happy with the dismissal. He felt the Malinga full toss may have been above waist high, but replays showed it wasn't...

09 Jul 2014

Morne Morkel is the new batsman in for South Africa.

09 Jul 2014

WICKET! Amla (101) is caught at cover by Senanayake off a Malinga full toss.

09 Jul 2014

09 Jul 2014

Steyn goes down the ground and hits Senanayake over mid-off for four.

It also brings up the 50 PARTNERSHIP between him and Amla, coming off 58 balls.

09 Jul 2014

Bad bowling from Senanayake to Steyn. Back-to-back wides...

09 Jul 2014

Hashim Amla has never been on the losing side when scoring a century in ODIs for South Africa.

Will he be 14th time lucky today?

09 Jul 2014

The Mighty#

09 Jul 2014

CENTURY for Amla, coming off 99 balls.

It's his 14th ODI century.

The required run-rate is 7.31 for South Africa.

09 Jul 2014

The Proteas have now taken the batting Power Play.

It will be from overs 36-40.

Lasith Malinga is brought back into the attack.

09 Jul 2014

South Africa need 108 more runs to win off 90 balls. If Steyn can somehow stay with Amla, then they're in with a sniff...

09 Jul 2014

OVERS 35: SA 160/7

09 Jul 2014

Steyn gets an inside edge to a Mendis googly, but it misses the stumps.

Mendis back on now for the Sri Lankans...

09 Jul 2014

OVERS 34: SA 157/7

09 Jul 2014

Another bouncer to Steyn. This time he looks all at sea, gets a top edge trying to fend it away, but luckily for him it falls in no-man's land....

09 Jul 2014

Steyn getting a taste of his own medicine from Mathews as he ducks under a couple of bouncers. At least he's having a chuckle...

09 Jul 2014

Medium pacer Mathews is now back into the attack.

09 Jul 2014

OVERS 33: SA 150/7

South Africa's 150 coming off 198 balls.

09 Jul 2014

09 Jul 2014
