ICC Champions Trophy 2017 India Can Retain Title Pace Attack Has Real Firepower Says Kumar Sangakkara

Where can I follow the Sri Lanka vs South Africa Champions Trophy match online?

Since two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whatever comes first for the player, Tharanga has been suspended from his side's upcoming matches against India and Pakistan, while each of Sri Lanka's players who played in the match received a fine of 60 per cent. He started slowly with Quinton De Kock, as the openers looked to play out the opening period without taking many risks.

South Africa rounded off their recent series against England with a morale-boosting seven-wicket win at Lord's on Monday, having ensured all the members of their Champions Trophy squad featured at some stage.

It proved costly as du Plessis and Amla went to make 145 for the second wicket before Pradeep, back for a second spell, finally got his man for 75.

Pradeep broke the stand as du Plessis pulled into the hands of a jumping Dinesh Chandimal at short mid-wicket in the fourth ball of the 34th over, with South Africa at 189/2.

He played with caution after the departure of De Villiers, focusing on rebuilding the innings with David Miller (18) and eventually reached his century in the 42nd over. Kusal Perera scored and unbeaten 44 but ran out of partners as 5 wickets fell in a matter of 46 runs. Amla's knock featured five fours and two sixes.

Since losing to New Zealand in the 2015 World Cup final, South Africa have come a long way in terms of building a team.

The return of Malinga, whose unorthodox, slingshot action makes him one of the most hard bowlers to face in world cricket, would be a massive boost for Sri Lanka. "Sri Lanka have always done well in ICC tournaments, so we have that confidence", Tharanga said.

Miller departed after the next ball, and a exhausted Amla soon followed suit, his despairing dive while coming back for a second was not enough to prevent Dickwella whipping off the bails after good work in the field by Mendis.

De Villiers produced a top-class fielding to dismiss Chandimal (12) as his stunning diving throw hit the stumps before the batsman could regain his crease.

Tahir then claimed Tharanga and Asela Gunaratne (4) to put his side in command.

South Africa scored just 44 runs in 12 overs when Quinton de Kock was caught behind off Nuwan Pradeep, and the medium-pacer nearly had his second wicket shortly after as du Plessis, on 8, skied a hook shot into the leg side.
