<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/south-africa/">South Africa</a> dished out a fine bowling effort to bowl out <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/sri-lanka/">Sri Lanka</a> for a modest 203 in their eight and penultimate league match of the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019-200898/">World Cup</a> in Chester-Le-Street on Friday. <p></p> <p></p>Opting to bowl, the Proteas picked up wickets at regular intervals after the first 10 overs to never allow the Sri Lankan middle-order settle down. <p></p> <p></p>Drafted into the playing eleven in place of Lungi Ngidi, pacer <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/dwaine-pretorius/news/">Dwaine Pretorius</a> (3/25) justified his selection with a three-wicket haul. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/chris-morris/news/">Chris Morris</a> (3/46) and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/kagiso-rabada/news/">Kagiso Rabada</a> (2/36) shared five wickets between them. <p></p> <p></p>Sri Lanka had a horrible start as they lost skipper Dimuth Karunaratne in the first ball of the match, caught by his counterpart Faf du Plessis at the second slip off Rabada. <p></p> <p></p>Thereafter, Kusal Perera (30 off 34) and Avishka Fernando (30 off 29) took the counter-attacking approach and played fearlessly to stitch a 67-run stand off 58 balls before the duo perished in quick succession. <p></p> <p></p>Right-arm pacer Pretorius sent both the batsmen packing in consecutive overs as Sri Lanka slumped to 72 for three in 11.3 overs. <p></p> <p></p>New man Angelo Mathews looked in no hurry and took 29 balls to score his 11 runs before he played on a Morris delivery in the 22nd over. <p></p> <p></p>Kusal Mendis (23 off 51) had to dug deep for his runs before he became Pretorius' third victim, spooning one to Morris at extra cover. <p></p> <p></p>Dhananjaya de Silva (24) , Jeeva Mendis (18) and Thisara Perera (21) all got starts but threw away their wickets when Sri Lanka needed them to carry on.
