A Sri Lanka sit 7 th in the table...a win over SA would improve their outside chance of qualifying for the semi finals

A rare South Africa win would be helpful for England ... Sri Laanka win today would put them on the same amount of points ( and games played) as England

SA won the toss and chose to bowl

Durham usually favours the team that is chasing

SA bowling been impressive , an abundance of dot balls ... and, SL struggling with SA pace bowlers

JP Duminy took a wicket with his first ball ! ...bad & costly shot choice by da Silva , bowled and gone for 24

11 overs remaining now 159-6

SL, the way theyve been playing so far today, will be hard pushed to get many more than 220 IMO
