FOUR! Thisara Perera to Faf du Plessis. Full toss, down leg side on the back foot working, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. That boundary brings to an end a dominant South African display. They would've hoped for this kind of display earlier on in the tournament but they have managed to get another win in the World Cup before the end. Sri Lanka's batsmen made starts but failed to produce any quality batting. As for South Africa they did well with the ball and were dominant with the bat today unlike in previous games. For Sri Lanka this loss will mean it will be hard for them to qualify with Pakistan, Bangladesh and England all on more points.

The fielders gave up before the ball was near the boundary which sums up the day for Sri Lanka.

OUT! Caught. Chris Morris to Lasith Malinga. Half volley, down leg side backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by du Plessis. And that wicket sees Sri Lanka bowled out for 203. Lots of starts from the top-order but nobody kept their wicket and grafted for runs which was their problem. A below par score from them, they will need another England style performance to make it hard for South Africa. Even-though South Africa have played poorly this tournament, so a win is not as straight forward as it seems.

FOUR! Chris Morris to Lasith Malinga. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Malinga carves this one behind point to add to their total, a few more of those are needed off the last over.

Start of Sri Lanka Innings. Good morning and welcome to the 35th match of the Cricket World Cup where South Africa take on Sri Lanka at Chester-Le-Street, Durham. For South Africa this game is irrelevant in terms of qualifying for the last four as they have already been knocked out, but what they can do is help Pakistan, England and Bangladesh by beating Sri Lanka. As mentioned previously Sri Lanka do have a chance of getting qualification to the last four, a win here would see them level on points with England but with an inferior net run rate, but with England playing both India and New Zealand that is likely to drop. Even though Sri Lanka are in with a chance of qualification one thing that has let them down badly this tournament is their batting performance. With their batting being poor so far they have had to rely on their bowling to bail them out, like when they faced England in Leeds last week. With one win on the board this World Cup South Africa will want to display what some of their batsman have not shown this tournament. Players like Amla, de Kock, Miller and du Plessis have been relatively poor and are capable of much more, the question is will they be able to produce a performance that a side like this should have done earlier.

FOUR! Thisara Perera to Faf du Plessis. Full toss, down leg side on the back foot working, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. That boundary brings to an end a dominant South African display. They would've hoped for this kind of display earlier on in the tournament but they have managed to get another win in the World Cup before the end. Sri Lanka's batsmen made starts but failed to produce any quality batting. As for South Africa they did well with the ball and were dominant with the bat today unlike in previous games. For Sri Lanka this loss will mean it will be hard for them to qualify with Pakistan, Bangladesh and England all on more points.
