SA vs SL 2nd T20: Highlights
South Africa win by 16 runs
All over! South Africa win by 16 runs. However, it was Isuru Udana's blistering 84 not out of just 48 balls which stole the show. The right-hander hit 6 sixes and 8 fours to take his team almost nearing the finishing line. But Udana's astonishing effort went in vain as Sri Lanka were restricted to 164/9 after 20 overs. SA go 2-0 up in the series
4 | 4 | 6
Isuru Udana with a late cameo. First one through extra-cover and the next is past short fine leg. Great batting but it is all too late. But he is not done yet and hit a huge hit over deep mid-wicket. 50 for Udana- brilliant innings. He is not out on 52 off 33. SL-124/7, need 57 runs in 18 balls
RUN OUT! Extraordinary dismissal- de Silva hit the ball miles into the air and the catch was dropped by Duminy! But Duminy is aware of the situation and leads to a run-out! SL- 83/7
Uphill task for Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka need 119 to win. SL- 62/6 after 10 overs. They need to go at 11.9 runs an over, the current rate is 6.2. Shamsi with the last wicket, removing A Perera for 11.
Sri Lanka losing wickets in a hurry- First to go is Thisara Perera for 22. Angelo Perera follows him for 11. SL- 62/6
Pretorius got it! Qeshile with the catch and Perera departs for 2. SL-56/5 after 8.1 overs and need 125 at 10.56 runs per over to win. The current rate is 6.85. This is all going down hill for the visitors.
Sri Lanka huff and puff to 50. But its a tough ask from here. The run rate has gone up to 10 runs per over. SL- 53/1. Powerplay has ended.
2 in 2
2 in 2 for Chris Morris. Brilliant bowling as he gets rid off Dickwella and Kamindu Mendis to leave Sri Lanka at 31/4 after 4 ovs
A great counter-attack by Perera. Smashes 17 off Steyn including two fours and a six. SA- 31/2 after 3 ovs
Another one for Steyn. Kusal Mendis goes for 4, SL in a spot of bother, they are 5/2 at the end of the first over of their innings.
They need 176 to win.
Play has resumed and it's a wicket for the Steyn. Shamsi takes the catch and it's curtains for Fernando without scoring. SL 1/1 (0.3 ov).

150 comes up for the home team! It comes after 17.4 overs with Miller (3*) and Duminy (11) at the crease. How much can they end with?
Malinga it is again! The partnership is broken. Much needed for Sri Lanka. Slower delivery does the trick as Hendricks scoops it to mid-off. Hendrick is out for 65(46).
