ICC World Cup Cricket Match 2007

South Africa vs Sri Lanka

Super 8, Match 2, SA vs SL: South Africa beat Sri Lanka by 1 wicket

South Africa clinched a nail biter on Wednesday as they claimed victory by just one wicket. On their way to win the match convincingly, Proteas stumbled dramatically while nearing the end of innings. South Africas batting line was in turmoil as Lasith Malinga re-ignited hopes for Sri Lankas revival by picking up four wickets in a row.
By doing this he claimed his first World Cup hat-trick and became the fifth one to do so in a World Cup match. South Africa lost four of its batsmen within ten runs of achieving the target. Last man to go was Makhaya Ntini who was clean bowled by Lasith Malinga. Ntini departed on naught. Shaun Pollock fell the hapless victim of Malinga as he too was clean bowled by the latter. He made 13 runs. Reported Earlier: South Africa produced a clinical bowling performance to restrict Sri Lanka to a modest 209 in the World Cup Super Eight cricket match here today. The free-stroking Sri Lankan batsmen struggled to get going on a damp wicket at the newly built Province Stadium before a record partnership between Tillekaratne Dilshan and Russel Arnold propped up the innings.
Dilshan and Arnold put on 97 runs for the sixth wicket which gave the Sri Lankans a target to defend which seemed unlikely after they were reduced to 98-5 in the 25th over. Dilshan made an uncharacteristically subdued 58 and Arnold played a similarly risk-free knock of 50.
The duo seemed to have pulled their side out of trouble and were preparing for a late assault when a lower order collapse cut the innings short with three balls to spare. Charl Langeveldt was the most successful among South African bowlers with 5-39 while Makhaya Ntini was also impeccable to return with figures of 2-26. Reported Earlier: Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawardene won the toss and elected to bat against South Africa in the second match of Super Eights in Georgetown. South Africa and Sri Lanka will be entering new territory when they meet at the Guyana National Stadium.
The match Wednesday is the first of any consequence to be played at a new stadium, outside the capital Georgetown, where workers are still battling to get everything ready. Rain prevented both teams from practising Monday and the pitch remained under cover, so the players could not make any assessment of it. South Africa team: G C Smith, A B de Villiers, J H Kallis, H H Gibbs, J M Kemp, M V Boucher, S M Pollock, A J Hall, R J Peterson, M Ntini, C K Langeveldt
Sri Lanka team: W U Tharanga, S T Jayasuriya, K C Sangakkara, D P M D Jayawardene, L P C Silva, R P Arnold, T M Dilshan, M F Maharoof, W P U J C Vaas, S L Malinga, M Muralitharan
Super 8, Match 2 Guyana: South Africa 212 for 9 (48.2 overs) beat Sri Lanka 209 all out (49.3 overs) by 1 wicket

Super 8, Match 2, SA vs SL: Cricket pitch mystery for South Africa and Sri Lanka

South Africa and Sri Lanka will be entering new territory when they meet in a World Cup Super Eight match at the Guyana National Stadium. The match Wednesday is the first of any consequence to be played at a new stadium, outside the capital Georgetown, where workers are still battling to get everything ready.
Rain prevented both teams from practising Monday and the pitch remained under cover, so the players could not make any assessment of it. South African coach Mickey Arthur said he hoped the pitch would have more pace and bounce than Guyana's old international ground, the Bourda in Georgetown, which was notoriously low and slow. South Africa team (from): G Smith (Captain), J Kallis, L Bosman, M Boucher, AB de Villiers, H Gibbs, A Hall, J Kemp, C Langeveldt, A Nel, M Ntini, R Peterson, S Pollock, A Prince, R Telemachus.
Sri Lanka team (from): M Jayawardene (Captain), K Sangakkara, S Jayasuriya, U Tharanga, M Atapattu, T Dilshan, R Arnold, C Silva, C Vaas, F Maharoof, L Malinga, D Fernando, N Kulasekara, M Muralitharan, M Bandara.
