  • AB de Villiers says the wicket wasn't as true as the England-bangladesh game. Adds that it was probably possible for them to chase it down, but they (SA) needed some early wicket which they got. Sri Lanka bowled exceptionally well, credit to them. Applauds his openers for sticking it out in the first 10 overs and then Faf du Plessis as well for playing the way he did in the middle overs. Praises Hashim Amla for being an outstanding cricketer and goes on to say that he is a massive influence in the dressing room too. (On why he waited till the 18-19th over to bring on Imran Tahir) Says they have to read the conditions and then adjust accordingly. Further adds they had a chat about when the right time is and it helps that he's one of the best bowlers in the world. States they've worked on a lot of things, that the goal is to improve continuously as that's what a champion team does. Mentions their game next is against Pakistan at Edgbaston and continues saying that they will asses the conditions after going over there. Answering the question that what is his biggest headache, he says team selection as he has a well-balanced team and lot of good players, which makes his job difficult.
  • Upul Tharanga says they bowled well. Mentions that even after Amla and du Plessis put up a good partnership, his bowlers put in a good effort to restrict them to 300. (On not getting wickets in the middle overs, he thinks that Lakshan Sandakan can make an impact, so might consider that in the next game. Ends by saying the next game is against India and they want to come back stronger against them.
  • Man of the Match, Imran Tahir says he has been enjoying his cricket and feels honoured every time he puts the jersey on. Hopes his good form continues through the tournament. Adds he's always ready to bowl, the guys upfront were unfortunate they didn't get wickets but their (Sri Lanka's) batters batted well. Is quite pleased all his variations were coming off well today and that his team got the victory. Thanks everybody who has supported him, as he had a niggle in the last week and it was difficult. Ends by saying he's really looking forward to the rest of the tournament.
  • On the other hand South Africa, were poor with the new ball conceding 87 runs in the first 10 overs. Tahir who picked four wickets and some brilliance in the field from the skipper AB de Villiers changed the game for the Proteas. They kept chipping away with important wickets which stopped the run flow of the Sri Lankans. Earlier in the day Amla's ton and du Plessis's fifty helped South Africa reach to a respectable total. Which in the end proved to be enough for them to emerge victorious.
  • So, Sri Lanka after being 90 for 1 in 11 overs have been bundled out for 203 runs. Sri Lanka were well on course to chase down the score when Niroshan Dickwella and Upul Tharanga were batting. Tharanga scored a hard fought fifty but did not get any support from the middle order. The Islanders suffered a mini collapse in between, losing 5 wickets for 60 runs and then 300 proved to be a big task for them.
  • 41.3OUT! That does it! South Africa have a win in their tournament opener and it's come via a dominant performance. Tossed up on the stumps, Nuwan Pradeep lofts this in an attempt to clear the wide long on boundary. Didn't middle it at all as it's straight down the throat of JP Duminy, who takes a simple catch. Tahir gets his fourth of the game and SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 96 RUNS!
  • 41.2A bit of extra bounce for Imran Tahir. He pitches this on a shorter length and it turns back in, the wrong 'un, takes Pradeep by surprise and raps him on the gloves.

  • Imran Tahir into the attack again.

  • 40.4Similar shot, it's aerially through the covers. Just a single this time though.
  • 40.3FOUR! Don't think he really meant to hit it there but he'll take it all the same. Rabada hurls it full and outside off, Pradeep awkwardly just chips it over the covers. It races away to the fence, beating the chasing fielders.
  • 40.2On a shortish length again, angling down, Pradeep makes room and without even looking at the ball, wildly swings, only to miss horribly.

  • Nuwan Pradeep is the last man in for Sri Lanka.
  • 38.1OUT! He's dragged it back on! Rabada gets his first of the match.
