Sri Lanka did well to take it into the final over but their batting effort was to blame for this defeat. A poor batting card. Plenty of poor shots against a revved-up attack. It wasn't enough to defend. South Africa lost their openers to the quicks early but Gibbs and AB stitched together a match-winning stand. Malinga, Udana and Kulasekara bowled well. So thats it from us. Thanks for tuning in.
