Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock have really set the pace in this innings. After winning the toss and choosing to bat seems to be a wise decision from the South African skipper Ab de Villiers. None of the Sri Lankan opening bowlers were impressive. Sachitra Senanayake was introduced in the first powerplay but de Kock is looking very aggressive. 64 runs scored in the first 10 overs. Amla holding on at the other end and letting de Kock to take on the Lankan bowling attack so far has worked for the South Africans.

Sri Lanka looking to break this partnership introduced Ajantha Mendis, Tillakaratne Dilshan and Rangana Herath all at the same. Spearhead of the Lankan attack, Lasith Malinga went for almost 20 runs in his first two overs, causing more concerns for the Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews.

De Kock completed his half century in 46 balls with eight fours and a six to his name. This partnership definitely looking dangerous as they completed 100 runs in 18 overs. Malinga was brought back into the attack but he did not make much of a difference. Mathews brought himself back but he was unable to break this stand as well. This was Amla and de Kock’s  third 100 runs stand in last six one day internationals (ODIs).
