Let us hope that the second game will be as exciting as this one. Do join us for that at 1800 local (1600 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care!

MATCH TIED! WE WILL HAVE A SUPER OVER! The scenes here at the Newlands. This match has been tied. Wow. Dickwella could have finished it had he hit the stumps but he missed. Length ball around off, Tahir gets an inside edge as the ball goes behind. Dickwella is closer to the sticks, has a shy at them but misses all three. The single is taken.

OUT! DUMINY IS RUN OUT! Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka... have you done it? Oh, boy! This doesn't look good at all for the home side. Duminy works through square leg and comes back for the second even when it isn't on. The throw comes in from the deep and the keeper does the rest with ease. JP was hoping for a mistake from the fielder, but that never happened. Anything can happen now. Which team will take the victory home? Or will we have a Super Over?

OUT! Bowled! A wicket and just 1 run off it. Exceptional stuff from Lasith Malinga, upto 96 wickets in T20Is. Another slower one, but full and in line of the stumps this time, Rabada clears his front leg and tries to bang it down the ground. Misses and the stumps are disturbed. 5 runs needed off the final over.

What a fantastic over so far. Fantastic. Cleverly disguises the slower ball again, wide outside off. Rabada is too early into the shot and misses it completely.
