There were a few decent thumps for South Africa in various pieces of the pursuit. Markram made a stroke 96, and the guests were truly looking acceptable till he was there, which was around the midway imprint. It was trailed by an ambitious thump by Rassie van der Dussen who utilized the breadths and opposite clears sublimely to lose the Lankan spinners their game, and Lanka won their 1st ODI by 14 runsthe pursuit after it had slowed down after Markram’s flight.
In any case, Sri Lanka had the option to dispose of the two of them at pivotal crossroads. Dew was a factor in the subsequent innings, however, Hasaranga actually bowled well and Dananjaya picked a few wickets, while Jayawickrama and Dhananjaya de Silva kept things tight. Together they did what’s needed to crush out a success. Wasn’t much in it, and South Africa will presumably glance back at their passing bowling which wasn’t incredible today.
I didn’t begin the innings well however I needed to remain in the center and take it forward. In the development to this series played some homegrown cricket and had great planning. Avishka Fernando | Player of the Match
Significant 10 focuses for Sri Lanka who have battled in the World Cup Super League up until this point. South Africa weren’t really awful either and most certainly appear to have it in them to bob back. Makes for a fascinating series. That is for some other time. We’ll be back with the second ODI on Saturday
Excellent win. They came into the game and our bowlers pulled it back. We began all around well. Plan was to bat until 40 overs and afterward get the force rolling. It was turning in the principal innings. We anticipated that the ball should turn in second however it didn’t. Spinners did well notwithstanding that. It is difficult to pursue on this wicket, 300 is a decent aggregate. We are not permitted to get net bowlers in view of the pandemic. Having insufficient bowlers is a test. Dasun Shanaka | Sri Lanka captain
He’s (Bavuma) going for a sweep. We’ll know tomorrow however he’s a warrior. The surface was great. Little missteps to a great extent. Positive signs to take forward. I just attempted to hit my region and be pretty much as predictable as could really be expected, fortunately fell off. We had great planning in the development. Defining moment was Temba harming finger and going off. Credit to Sri Lankan bowlers.
Maharaj came for the presentation as Bavuma was injured
