South African’s bowlers rattled Sri Lankan’s batting line as they could post only 77 runs for all out in 19.1 overs in the 5th T20I match of the World Cup 2024 being played in New York on Monday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

 Anrich  Nortje took four wickets against seven runs in four overs.  

Sri Lanka finished their batting innings on 77 – their lowest total in all T20 internationals.

After choosing to bat first, the Sri Lankans suffered a top and middle-order collapse as eight of their players were dismissed for single-digit scores, including captain Hasaranga who was out for a duck.

Kusal scored 19, Kamindu made 11 and Mathews scored 16, as Sri Lanka finished 77 all out.

For South Africa, it was a near-perfect bowling performance, as Nortje picked 4-7, while Rabada and Maharaj got two wickets each and Baartman also picked one on his T20 World Cup debut.

 Sri Lanka XI: 1 Pathum Nissanka, 2 Kusal Mendis (wk), 3 Kamindu Mendis, 4 Sadeera Samarawickrama, 5 Charith Asalanka, 6 Angelo Mathews, 7 Wanindu Hasaranga (capt), 8 Dasun Shanaka, 9 Maheesh Theekshana, 10 Matheesha Pathirana, 11 Nuwan Thushara

South Africa XI: 1 Quinton de Kock (wk), 2 Reeza Hendricks, 3 Aiden Markram (capt), 4 Heinrich Klaasen, 5 David Miller, 6 Tristan Stubbs, 7 Marco Jansen, 8 Keshav Maharaj, 9 Kagiso Rabada, 10 Anrich Nortje, 11Ottneil Baartman
