South Africa put in an all-round bowling display to clean out Sri Lanka for 120 in Match 32 of ICC T20 World Cup 2016 at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi on Monday. Sri Lanka finally managed to get off to a good start, with Dinesh Chandimal and Tillakaratne Dilshan looking good at the start of the innings. The pair added 45 runs for the first wicket in less than 5 overs before Chandimal was bowled by Aaron Phangiso. Lahiru Thirimanne, Sri Lanka’s proxy Kumar Sangakkara, walked in at No. 3 and survived all of 1 ball before walking back. Phangiso was on a hat-trick and Sri Lanka’s flying start was suddenly void. Live Cricket Score: South Africa vs Sri Lanka, T20 World Cup 2016, Match 32 at Delhi

Milinda Siriwardana came in next, and looked fluent from the start. He hit 2 fours and just as he was looking dangerous he was run out following a terrible mix-up with Dilshan. Shehan Jayasuriya played an innocuous nothing shot off Farhaan Behardien right into the hands of Faf du Plessis, getting out for 1 as Sri Lanka slipped to 78 for 4. Live Cricket Blog: South Africa vs Sri Lanka, T20 World Cup 2016, Match 32 at Delhi

Dilshan was standing tall amid the rubble at the other end. He had statrted well but the constant wickets made him go into a shell. Perhaps that frustration led him to play some needless shots, but after surviving an LBW appeal against Behardien, he was struck plumb in front next ball. His 36 had come off 40 balls, and had included 4 fours and 1 six.

Chamara Kapugedara was bowled by an Imran Tahir googly for 4 off 7 balls, and Thisara Perera hit Dale Steyn to Behardien for 8. Dasun Shanaka took the toal past 100, but not by much. Rangana Herath edged Kyle Abbott behind to Quinton de Kock, and Jeffery Vandersay was bowled by Kyle Abbott for 3 off 7 balls. Suranga Lakmal was run out first ball, as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 120. Shanaka remained unbeaten on 20.

Brief scores:

Sri Lanka 120 in 19.3 overs (Tillakaratne Dilshan 36; Kyle Abbott 2 for 14) vs South Africa.
