6 Dec 2017
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
first ball of todays play is a wicket

Karunaratne gone for a golden duck!

eventful opening over ...SL 6-1
Perera bowled out for 30 half way through 12 over... superb length that was

72-3 after 12 overs
SL 100 runs up ... then Matthews goes for 11 .... SL 100-4 after 22 overs
15 overs left ....135-5

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

as @Foley said above, how on EARTH did England lose to Sri Lanka? .... & yes , youre probably right @Gary Baldi
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
Mendis went first ball of the 40th over, for 18 .... now down to the last 9 overs of their innings,SL currently 166-7
Udana gone for a battling 17 .... then Lakmal dropped (on 3) ... 198-9 ... 6 balls left of the innings
All out 203 .... 3 balls spare

England need SA to do a decent job with the bat next
If the opening over is any indicator, SA should win this match .... 9-0
