South Africa took a 1 nil lead in the three-match T20 series against Sri Lanka, after a victory in the opening game at Newlands, Cape Town yesterday. 

But it was only after the visitors forced the game into a Super Over, showing plenty of fight despite posting only 134 on the board.

Needing five for victory in the final over, JP Duminy took a single off Isuru Udana and saw Dale Steyn play out a couple of dots before taking a single. 

With three required off two, Duminy ended up being run out while trying a second to get back on strike. 

Imran Tahir managed a single to level scores, with Niroshan Dickwella to blame for a missed run-out and an opportunity to seal the game. 

South Africa went on to post 14 in the Super Over - David Miller managing a six and a four off Lasith Malinga. 

Imran Tahir then came up with a fine display under pressure, conceding only five to facilitate South Africa's jail break!
