Lutho Sipamla to Isuru Udana. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Markram. Well that was a valiant effort from Isuru Udana. In a way it's a shame that there's not one more over in this game. What he did prove is just how much you can catch up at the end of a T20 innings. Sri Lanka lost this game early in the second innings when their top order became a procession of batsmen back and forth from the pavilion. For South Africa both Hendricks and van der Dussen impressed with bat in hand. There will be a decision for South African selectors to make there when it comes to the World Cup.

SIX! Lutho Sipamla to Isuru Udana. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. He's hit another, what an effort it has been from this young man. I'm sure there will be a few people in India taking note of this performance and thinking about future stars of the IPL.

OUT! Bowled. Chris Morris to Lasith Malinga. Yorker, middle stump backing away driving, missed to. Finally Morris does nail the yorker and he cleans up Malinga. Udana needs to blast 32 off the last over for Sri Lanka to win.

FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Lasith Malinga. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs. A little inside edge and somehow the ball misses the stumps and it beats the keeper too.

OUT! Bowled. Tabraiz Shamsi to Akila Dananjaya. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, wide outside off stump on the front foot Slog, inside edge to.

SIX! Lutho Sipamla to Isuru Udana. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That is massive, that's gone absolutely miles and that's 50 for Udana, what a great knock.

FOUR! Lutho Sipamla to Isuru Udana. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front Slog, thick edge past fine leg for 4 runs. That's an edge but it will be another boundary. This is a good effort from the young Sri Lankan all-rounder.

FREE HIT. SIX! JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break back of a length, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. The free hit is launched over the ropes. I think Duminy might regret deciding to bring himself on.

No ball JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Quicker length ball, middle stump down the track Slog, in the air uncontrolled to long on for 1 run, by Markram. Udana advances and Duminy fires it in really quickly. He's hit it quite well but can't quite clear Markram at long on. It looks like they might just check to see if Markram touched the rope, he was right back. It's the front foot first, and it's miles over the line!

FOUR! JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. He slashed at that really hard. There's no slip in place and that will go to the boundary.
