Captains View

Temba Bavuma

We are going to bowl first. Quinton comes in for Klaasen. The team is feeling much better, de Kock is in a much better state. The first 5 overs will be key for us. We are expecting the pitch to be different here in Sharjah. We are expecting it be a slow and low wicket.

Dasun Shanaka

We have played a couple of games, so the ball might keep low. Bowlers and batters have been exposed to this wicket before, so that might be an advantage for us. We have planned after that loss against SA, so hopefully we’ll be able to execute them today. We are playing with the same team.

T20 World Cup 2021 South Africa vs Sri Lanka Highlights

Sri Lanka Batting

Nissanka and Kusal Perera gets into the crease to lead Sri Lanka while Markram opens the bowling attack.

The Sri Lankan duo needs to build a massive partnership to set a massive target against South Africa. But Nortje in the 4th over of the innings draws the first blood by dismissing Kusal Perera for 7 runs.

Asalanka then joins hands with Pathum Nissanka and adds a 41 runs partnership before Asalanka loses his wicket via a run-out dismissal. South African Shamsi on the other hand strikes the Sri Lankan batting unit like lightning and dismissed three top-order batsmen for single-digit runs.

With opening batsman Pathum Nissanka’s 72 runs off 58 balls Sri Lanka scored 142 runs for 10 wickets loss at the end of the 20 overs.

Most wickets in a calendar year in T20Is

  • 32 Tabriaz Shamsi (2021)
  • 31 Andrew Tye (2018)
  • 31 Dinesh Nakarni (2021)
  • 29 Waseem Abbas (2021)

South Africa Batting

de Kock and R Hendricks gets into the crease to lead South Africa to chase down the target of 143 runs while Chameera opens the bowling attack.

Nor like Sri Lanka, South African opening batsmen lose their wickets to Chameera who dismissed de Kock and Hendricks in the 4th over and makes SA score like 26 runs for 2 wickets loss.

Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma then join hands and leads the SA. South Africa needs their captains’ knock to stay alive in the match. Though van der Dussen loses his wicket via an unwanted runout SA skipper puts all his effort and builds a partnership with Markram.

The duo added 47 runs for their next wicket where Hasaranga dismissed Markram and puts an end to the partnership. At the end of the 15 overs, SA scored 96 runs for 4 wickets loss.

David Miller and Temba Bavuma get under pressure to build a partnership to win the match against Sri Lanka. The long struggle of Bavuma comes to an end when he faces Hasaranga.
Hasaranga dismissed Bavuma and Pretorius in back-to-back deliveries and secured his hat-trick wicket of the T20 World Cup.
Hat tricks in T20 World Cups
  • Brett Lee vs BAN Cape Town 2007
  • Curtis Campher vs NED Abu Dhabi 2021
  • Wanindu Hasaranga vs SA Sharjah 2021

With 15 required off the last 6 deliveries Miller hits a couple of back-to-back sixes and starts to taste the victory, while Rabada finishes the match with a boundary.

Player of the Match

Tabraiz Shamsi 

My first Man of the Match trophy in the World Cup, so it’s a special moment, but not to take anything away from Nortje, Markram, Miller and Rabada, they played their parts really well. I haven’t had a great number of chances previously, but I kept working hard, was looking to do something special, try and win games for the country.

The number one rank doesn’t really matter for me,  I’m just glad that I am bowling well, we have one of the finest bowling attacks in the world and I’m just happy to be part of it.
