Man Of The Match Aiden Markram

Well, you could argue the game was pretty much done in the first half as South Africa went onto record the highest score ever in the history of World Cup. As many as three batters got hundreds and one of them (Markram) notched up the quickest ODI 100 in World Cup cricket. If anything, Sri Lanka needed at least two batters from the top five to share the burden of compiling a big score and thus, garner hopes of winning. They did get off to a flier, thanks to Kusal Mendis’ swashbuckling innings of 42-ball 76 that included 4 fours and 8 sixes Im fact, at the end of 12 overs, they were 107/2 but 2 quick wickets off successive overs derailed the chase completely and although Asalanka and Shanaka composed fifties, they only helped reduce the defeat margin.

You could have so many clean strikes in your side, but the pressure of required rate often forces you to do silly things and despite signs of brilliance, Sri Lanka couldn’t quite win the key moments for most parts of the game today.

Aiden Markram | Player of the Match: Markram, Player of the Match: Feels fantastic. The platform was laid beautifully by Quinny and Rassie. Gave us the freedom. Some days it comes off, some days it doesn’t. Pretty clear with what’s expected of me as a batter. Like every other team, we try to play a positive brand of cricket. Initially you want to get a feel for the wicket. Ultimately it’s about backing your options. Happy with how it worked out. The wicket played really well. The ball was travelling. Feels good to be on the positive side of things. To start well was in the World Cup was important and something that we talked about.

Dasun Shanaka | Sri Lanka skipper: I expected high scoring game today with the kind of batting line-up South Africa have. We missed our lengths and the execution wasn’t there. We should have kept them to somewhere around 370 and that would have been a bit manageable. We got some batters who were striking it really well, but there was too much to do. Missing those three bowlers is huge, but that’s the part of the game, we have to move on and it’s an opportunity for others.
