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, 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

Udana to Pretorius, OUT, bowled by a slower ball! Brilliantly bowled, out of the back of the hand, and it dips on Pretorius at the last moment. He'd set himself for the slog sweep, but was through the shot before the ball got to him
