That is all for this game, and that is all from Colombo. Over to Hambantota now. Abhishek Purohit signing off. Cheers
Du Plessis: "Very chuffed, so proud of the boys, we were under pressure after the ODIs, great character. We are playing a world class team excellent in their skills, we have some outstanding fielders, that is our way of creating pressure. I thought it was a good score on this wicket, I told them if we keep fighting, we will pull it through."
Chandimal: "We did well in the first half, Sachithra bowled really well. We lost early wickets, then we hit a few rash shots. Sanga is in good form, but others hit a few rash shots. We have two more games and are looking forward to them."
JP Duminy is the Man of the Match. Duminy: "Went well with the bat and exceptionally with the ball. Little bit of consistency for me with the bat, pretty happy. Facing the Sri Lankan spinners is something we have to look at. We are going to celebrate this win, it has been far and few for us on this tour."
Faf du Plessis is all smiles, South Africa needed this after the ODI series. They managed 115, which Duminy admitted at the break was not enough at all. But the Sri Lanka top order let them in through some needlessly aggressive shots, Duminy tied them down after that, and even as the asking-rate rose, Sri Lanka's response was to collapse. Absolutely nothing on that scorecard apart from Sanga's unbeaten fifty. Have a look at these - 11, 9, 8, 4, 0, 5, 0, 0, 0. Epic meltdown. Sri Lanka have now lost six out of seven T20s at the Premadasa
What a collapse
Mazher Arshad: "JP Duminy has become the first South African to score 50 and take 3 wickets in a Twenty20 International."
Daniel Alexander: "Stage set for a Thisara Perera assault!"
Down to Thisara now, could be over in a few hits, could hole out. Morne Morkel comes back
