Over 32.0

Kumar Sangakkara is the Man of the Match.

Chandimal: I am over the moon. As a captain this is my first game. Sanga batted really well. Mahela batted well in the middle overts. They are experienced campaigners. They know how to pace their innings and in the end we won the game quite comfortably. I didn't tell Sanga how to bat. He knows about it. We have three former captains. They give a lot of advice to me. We will keep our fingers crossed and hopefully we will win the next game.

AB de Villiers: It is not the end of the series. Certainly a disappointing performance from the boys. Hopefully we will do well in the next time. The was South Africans are we will fight back that's for sure and we will try and make it 1-1 in the next game. We would like to win the series and that is why we came here. We missed out Amla today. He is a quality player for us. The boys are capable and I know we can fight back. The boys are used to the conditions.

South Africa all-out for just 140 runs, Sri Lanka won by 180 runs and lead the series with 1-0.This is South Africa's second biggest defeat in the ODIs.

Over 31.5 HMRKB Herath to AM Phangiso, out Stumped!! It was a quicker delivery on off, Phangiso comes down the track and looks to go over but gets beaten. Sanga is quick to collect the ball and whips the bails in a flash, Phangiso is well short of his ground.

Over 31.4 HMRKB Herath to AM Phangiso, no runs, gets forward and defends it solidly.

Over 31.3 HMRKB Herath to AM Phangiso, no runs, goes on to the back foot and defends it to the on-side.

Over 31.2 HMRKB Herath to AM Phangiso, no runs, comes on to the front foot and pushes it back to bowler.
