South Africa v Sri Lanka – 35th Match – World Cup 19 – Highlights


Proteas power past Sri Lanka

Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla share in an unbroken 175-run stand, and South Africa have flattened Sri Lanka to win by nine wickets. South Africa’s good work started with the ball. Kagiso Rabada struck with the very first ball of the match, and Dwaine Pretorius found conditions very much to his liking. He settled into a steady line and length and reaped the reward with three cheap wickets. Chris Morris wasn’t quite as economical, but he chipped in with three wickets of his own, and Sri Lanka’s 203 all out was never going to be enough, barring another Malinga miracle. Alas, it was not forthcoming this time around. Quinton de Kock fell early, but Faf and Amla were rock solid in taking South Africa home. South Africa score a consolation win, but this defeat doesn’t quite put Sri Lanka completely out of the reckoning: they could still reach 10 points.
