1.40pm South Africa have reached a monumental 331 for 6 at Kingsmead, and Sri Lanka's shoulders are sagging as they trudge off the field. But could South Africa have got even more? After a run of 80s and 90s, Quinton de Kock reached his 14th ODI hundred in double quick time to set up the innings, and South Africa were motoring along when he and Faf du Plessis were at the crease. Their momentum stalled just a little in the middle overs, neither van der Dussen nor Miller could quite pick it up again, and it took Phehlukwayo's late cameo to raise his team to the fourth highest total ever achieved in ODIs here. The wheels came off just a little for Sri Lanka in the field, join us in half an hour to see if they can fare any better with the bat.

Malinga to Phehlukwayo, FOUR runs, Phehlukwayo finishes with a boundary! He walks right across to the off side, swinging wildly at a full one and top edging it up and over fine leg, the ball bouncing just short of the boundary marker
Malinga to Phehlukwayo, 2 runs, pulled hard into the leg side, and they hustle a second run
Malinga to Phehlukwayo, FOUR runs, slapped over point! Just to rub it in, Phehlukwayo backs away and thrashes a slower ball over point
Malinga to Phehlukwayo, 2 runs, no-one goes for it! Phehlukwayo swung the ball high into the air on the leg side, Rajitha and Akila converge in the deep, but each leaves it for the other. No-one called for it, no-one went for it. Either could have caught it
Malinga to Phehlukwayo, 2 runs, slower one, and it's slapped to point. They take on the fielder for a sharp single, and with no-one backing up close in, his wide throw brings a second run
