South Africa win over Sri Lanka

AFP, Centurion

Kagiso Rabada led a pace assault as South Africa defended a below-par total in the second one-day international against Sri Lanka at SuperSport Park on Wednesday. Rabada, bowling at more than 150 km/h at times, took three for 43 as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 138 in reply to South Africa's 251.

Rabada was backed up by fellow fast bowlers Lungi Ngidi (two for 14) and Anrich Nortje (two for 25), while veteran leg-spinner Imran Tahir picked up two for 39. Man of the match Quinton de Kock hit a dazzling 94 off 70 balls, with 17 fours and a six, but the South African batting fell away after it looked as though they were set to make more than 300 on a ground which frequently yields high totals.

Thisara Perera dismissed De Kock and took three for 26 as the Sri Lankan bowlers fought back. The last six South African wickets fell for 31 runs. Rabada showed from the first over of the second innings that South Africa's policy was to try to blast through the Sri Lankan batting.

In striving for pace, he was erratic at times, sending down three wides, including one that went far down the leg side for an extra four runs. But Rabada hurried Niroshan Dickwella into a rash shot -- his 100th one-day international wicket in his 68th match -- and Ngidi bowled fellow opener Avishka Fernando.
