Sri Lanka v. South Africa

Sri Lanka v South Africa ODI Series 2013

Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy: Sunday 28 July 2013 14:30 (day 1 of 1)

Toss: South Africa won the toss and elected to bat.

Result: Sri Lanka win by 8 wickets

Sri Lanka 1st innings

End of Over 44 (9 runs)
Bowler: Morne Morkel
Sri Lanka: 239-2 (rr 5.43)

43.6
One Run
Morkel to Dilshan. Seaming in length ball, to leg on the front foot glancing, well timed to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Miller. Dilshan gets the winning run, and it has been a crushing victory thanks to a partnership of 184 between Dilshan, who recorded his 17th ODI century, and Sangakarra who fell just short himself. The South African attack was toothless on a pitch which offered less assistance than expected, although they will be left pondering an unsuccessful lbw appeal relatively early in Sangakarra's innings. A review would surely have been successful, but was not called for, and the only other chances were in some run out opportunities. South Africa can also rue another poor effort with the bat. Amla and Duminy played well, but too many soft wickets restricted the total with Mendis and Malinga, as usual, leading the pack by sharing seven wickets. Dilshan finished unbeaten on 115, his fifth century on this ground, and coupled with a useful analysis of two for 40, he is the Man of the Match today. So Sri Lanka have now opened up an unassailable 3-1 lead in the series, but there are still some ranking points and pride up for grabs when the teams meet for the final match in the series on Wednesday.
