37.5 Vishwa Fernando to Faf du Plessis

FOUR! Vishwa Fernando to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Fractionally short and du Plessis pounces on it in a flash. Crashed away with impunity, he is obviously seeing it pretty well now.

35.4 Vishwa Fernando to Rassie van der Dussen

FOUR! Vishwa Fernando to Rassie van der Dussen. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. This just sits up begging to be hit and van der Dussen doesn't miss out. He virtually had time to ask his captain at the other end where he should hit it because it was so slow.

35.3 Vishwa Fernando to Faf du Plessis

Vishwa Fernando to Faf du Plessis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to short third man for 1 run, shy attempt by de Silva. There it is, an eleventh ODI century for Faf du Plessis elicits roars of delight from The Wanderers. It's been a serene innings by the Proteas skipper, taking the sting out of the Sri Lankan attack and finding the boundary regularly. Other than the one chance he gave early on he's been fantastic this afternoon.
