Rangana Herath finally broke the dangerous looking partnership between de Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla. He dismissed Amla who scored 48 runs from 61 balls with four boundaries to his name. He also picked up Jacques Kallis in the 26th over. Herath is getting the ball to deviate causing problems for the South African batsmen.

 

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. The South African skipper Ab de Villiers comes into the crease. This is how a game of cricket changes in no time. South Africa was in the driver’s seat a while ago but now Sri Lanka all of a sudden forced the South African batsmen to play a watchful game. De Villiers has been rotating the strike quite well. On the other end de Kock completed his 4th century in his last six innings. The 100 percent conversion rate continues to prevail for this kid. That’s the most number of centuries by anyone at the age of 21. South Africa are 192/2 at the end of 35 overs.
