DEMOLISHED AND DESTROYED
The proteas crushed the so called lankan lions in the first ODI today devastating them for a mere 43 runs and winning the match by 258 runs !!!! Morne Morkel bagged 4 wkts .
THE PROTEAS RULEZZ !!!!
Amla at other end didn't look as fluent as Kallis early on with few edgy
drives attempted over extra cover but he soon found his rhythm and
touch with shots around the ground. Dilshan tried many bowlers including
novice Kulasekara and Mathews but could not restrict charge forward.
Amla marched forward and completed his 9th ODI ton to leave Sri Lankans
in disarray. Mendis proved dully ineffective and Malinga was too brought
on for a small spell, which stretched further as South Africans took
batting powerplay. Batting powerplay went smooth until Kallis was run
out in attempt to take a misjudged single from Amla.
After posting 301 South Africa came out in anticipation of some quick
wickets, they were not disappointed as Sri Lanka lost Tharanga in the
second ball of their innings. Dilshan lasted only 6 balls more as he was
removed by Tsotsobe in his first over. the youngster Chandimal after
showing lots of promise in the longer version of the game, had no clue
to tackle the tall South African bowlers.
With three quick wickets upfront it was again down to the experienced
men for some repair work, Sangakkara and Jayawardene were left with a
daunting task ahead, they too found the going tough as Tsotsobe and
Morkel continued their rampage, they were all over the Sri Lankans like a
rash.Tottering at 13-6, Sri Lanka found themselves 8 down quickly for as
low as 33, there was no stopping the bowlers and quickly wrapped up the
match as they bundled out the Islanders for 43, their lowest ever in
The only consolation for them is that it wasn't the lowest ever for
any international side in ODIs. Morne Morkel was adjudged te an of the
match as he overshadowed Malinga's effort with the ball, a dream match
for him after having a poor outing in the test series and helped South
Africa go 1-0 up in the series.
