Commentary

  , Mendis to Steyn, OUT, Steyn's been given out lbw and Steyn is reviewing it, it was the googly, Steyn was trapped on the back foot, the ball hits the top flap of the pad first and then the bat, height was the doubt and Hawkeye shows the ball hitting the top of the off stump, umpire's call stands, Steyn's gone and that's the match
  , Malinga to Imran Tahir, no run, this time he keeps it out to the off side
  , Malinga to Imran Tahir, no run, another yorker and there's a big shout for the lbw and he was not given, they review it, bizarrely the ball went under the bat, spun back in and hit the pads, not in front of the stumps though so he is safe
  , Malinga to Morkel, OUT, another yorker but this time Morkel couldn't keep it out, it was in fact the slower ball, Morkel played all around it and the ball struck the off stump
  , Malinga to Morkel, no run, he gets a yorker and he digs it out back to the bowler
  , Malinga to Amla, OUT, it's a full toss and Amla has holed out! On the body and he looks to swing it over the infield but a very easy catch for Senanayake at midwicket, they check if the ball was above waist height but it was within the limit
  , Malinga to Amla, no run, it's a full toss and he swings and mistimes it wide of mid-on who dives but doesn't take the single
  , Senanayake to Steyn, no run, full on the stumps and defended
  , Senanayake to Steyn, 1 wide, round the wicket and yet another wide down leg
  , Senanayake to Steyn, FOUR, South Africa are not giving up! Tossed up and Steyn gives the charge and lofts him over extra cover, making use of the powerplay
  , Senanayake to Steyn, no run, gets forward and pushes it to the off side
  , Senanayake to Steyn, 1 wide, makes the same mistake again, too wide down leg
  , Senanayake to Steyn, 1 wide, poor ball as he strays down the leg side
  , Senanayake to Steyn, FOUR, he comes down the track, wants to hit it straight and he gets an outside edge that clears point, nobody there
  , Senanayake to Steyn, no run, tossed up and he comes forward and defends
  , Senanayake to Amla, 1 run, in the air and drops short! Strange shot, he brings out the slog and it's a top edge that drops short of deep square running in
  , Malinga to Amla, 1 run, it's a low full toss on the pads and he reaches his century! He also keeps the strike, single to deep square, no major celebrations because his team has its back to the wall, century under pressure
  , Malinga to Amla, no run, the ball stops on him a bit and he stabs it to mid-off
  , Malinga to Amla, FOUR, that was a classic shot! Length ball on the middle stump, he punches it over mid-on, knew the fielder was up and the follow through was great too
  , Malinga to Amla, 1 wide, he strays down the leg side and wide called
  , Malinga to Amla, no run, he punches it hard straight to mid-off at the edge of the circle, not taking the single again
  , Malinga to Amla, no run, slower ball on the pads and he wristily flicks it wide of midwicket, he doesn't take the run
  , Malinga to Amla, 2 runs, starts off full and wide outside off and he slashes it wide of deep cover, two more to Amla
  , Mendis to Amla, 1 run, he tucks it with the turn to square leg
  , Mendis to Steyn, 1 run, he gets beside the line and steers it wide of point
  , Mendis to Steyn, no run, this one really skids through and he punches it to mid-on
  , Mendis to Steyn, no run, goes for the drive and he gets an inside edge to the leg side
  , Mendis to Amla, 1 run, comes forward and punches him down to long-off
  , Mendis to Amla, no run, he gets well forward and defends
  , Mathews to Steyn, 4 leg byes, another snorter of a bouncer and Steyn backs away and the ball lobs off his shoulder and clears the keeper and slips
