South Africa win after Sri Lanka dismissed for 77

South Africa 80 for 4 (De Kock 20, Hasaranga 2-22) beat Sri Lanka 77 (Nortje 4-7, Rabada 2-21, Maharaj 2-22) by six wickets

South Africa began their T20 World Cup campaign with a six-wicket victory over Sri Lanka as concerns over the New York ground's drop-in pitches came to the fore.

Sri Lanka were bowled out for just 77 – their lowest T20 total – as just three of their batters made double figures, with Kusal Mendis’ 30-ball 19 their top score.

Anrich Nortje took career-best T20 figures of 4-7 for South Africa while Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj picked up two wickets apiece.

Faced with a such low total, South Africa’s batters attempted to play sensibly on a tricky surface as they eked their way to the target with 22 balls to spare.

Quinton de Kock hit one boundary as he top scored with 20 while the normally explosive Tristan Stubbs curbed his attacking instincts with 13 off 28.

Wanindu Hasaranga briefly raised Sri Lanka’s hopes with the wickets of both South Africa batters as he claimed 2-22.

Heinrich Klaasen, who finished 19 not out, got the Proteas over the line alongside David Miller, who hit the winning runs to finish unbeaten on six.
