Opening Game

Sri Lanka vs South Africa

South Africa 241/6 (15)

Sri Lanka 244/2 (11.1)
50 from 12 - 8 fours, 2 sixes
51 from 15 - 6 fours, 2 sixes
100 from 25 - 11 fours, 5 sixes


Easy warm up victory for the boys, both teams fielding weakened line ups but Mubarak and Tharanga still fired at the top putting on 151 for the first wicket. Mubarak was eventually out for 86 after hitting his own wicket, and Sangakkara suffered the same fate later when his quick fire 39 was ended by the same bowler. Tharanga scored a fine century from only 25 deliveries, but it was Dilshan who finished the game, hitting his only delivery for a 6.
