South Africa looking dangerous once again as Ab de Villiers completed his half-century in just 41 balls. He is looking to take on the Lankans bowlers. He has quickly moved on to 70 from 49 balls with seven boundaries and two sixes. Sri Lankan bowlers are bowling all over the place. Quinton de Kock was dismissed by Sachitra Senanayake. He scored 128 runs from 127 balls with 12 fours and three sixes to his name.
Earlier Sri Lanka forced the South African batsmen to play a watchful game. Jacques Kallis came into the crease in the 22nd over. All of a sudden the Sri Lankans looks charged up and trying to restrain the South African batsmen from scoring runs. Kallis gave away his wicket as the Lankans made sure that he does not get away.
De Villiers was rotating the strike quite well. South Africa were 192/2 at the end of 35 overs. All of a sudden South Africa are 259/3 in 42 overs. After the dismissal of de Kock, JP Duminy has come to the crease to join his skipper who’s looking in real good touch.
