10 overs were gone and Sri Lanka needed some quick batting with runs on the board. Unfortunately it could not happen tonight because of the brilliant bowling from Steyn, Abbot and Phangiso. Parerea was out for 8 and could not make his bat shine in this last encounter for his country. Shanaka was really impressive with his 20 runs and remained not out wthen Lakmal the last man was run out on the total score of 120.
It seemed like a lollypop target for the South Africans right from the word go, Amla completed a beautiful half century with 56 runs at the top in 69 balls. He took his time and played as freely as possible. Sri Lanka could not stop him. They were desparately missing Malinga again.
De Kock could make 9 runs today when he was run out by Dilshan. He was the danger removed by Sri Lanka. But Amla stood like a rock with captain Plessis who made a brilliant 31 on 41 balls. That was the difference between the losing and winning side. Plessis was lbw out by Lakmal but by that time. 13 overs were finished and the game was out of Sri Lanka’s hands.
AB de Villiers made a quick unbeaten 20 on 20 balls fantastically. He hit two wonderful sixes and won the match well before 20 overs for South Africa.Only Lakmal was the successful bowler who took one wicket for Sri Lanka. The rest of the side was pretty disappointing.
