South Africa win by 71 runs (DLS Method)

  • South Africa have won by 72 runs, DLS method
  • Sri Lanka now need 121 from 48 balls, DLS-revised target
  • SL openers dismissed inside Powerplay with 332 to get
  • de Kock gets his 14th ODI ton, continues with good form
  • van der Dussen's fourth ODI fifty pushes score over 300

    We wanted to improve and the batting was the one thing. Especially when you have a good start. Today the guys came in and started partnerships. Normally it's difficult to come and score runs in Durban and they made it looks easy.

    You need to have hitters in the tank and that's one thing we've always been blessed. Today it was pleasing to see the talking we did after the last game was put into action.

    A really good package performance, I was proud of the guys. The plan is regardless of the results, everything we're thinking about, our big picture thinking, will be implemented in the last two games. We'll have to see what the selection panel gives us tomorrow.

    First half when we were bowling, we mis-fielded a lot. 15-20 runs too much.

    We got a good start two for 75, but after that with the DLS, it's very hard to get that kind of target.

    We were looking forward to concentrate and play their roles, but with the rain they couldn't do what we expected.

    Kamindu is a very interesting player in our future. He's a plus point going into the matches. We still want to give opportunity for the players to get confidence and do their job.
