FOUR! Thisara Perera to Faf du Plessis. Full toss, down leg side on the back foot working, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. That boundary brings to an end a dominant South African display. They would've hoped for this kind of display earlier on in the tournament but they have managed to get another win in the World Cup before the end. Sri Lanka's batsmen made starts but failed to produce any quality batting. As for South Africa they did well with the ball and were dominant with the bat today unlike in previous games. For Sri Lanka this loss will mean it will be hard for them to qualify with Pakistan, Bangladesh and England all on more points.

FOUR! Isuru Udana to Faf du Plessis. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. The fielders gave up before the ball was near the boundary which sums up the day for Sri Lanka. They have fallen really short of a good total here and South Africa are very close to getting the target here.
