SRI VS SA T20 Worldcup Highlights : South Africa Trash Srilanka in rain reduced match

World T20: De Villiers leads South Africa to win over Sri Lanka 

 Hambantota: South Africa captain AB de Villiers hit a breezy 30 and his seamers pinned down Sri Lanka batsmen in a comfortable 32-run win over the hosts in a rain-shortened World Twenty20 match on Saturday.

De Villiers faced 13 balls and led from the front with a four and two sixes in South Africa's healthy 78 for 4 after rain reduced the last Group C match to seven overs per side. Dale Steyn (2 for 10) bowled well upfront as the hosts finished at 46 for 5.

 The result did not affect both the teams from advancing to the Super Eights after both recorded victories over Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka defeated the African team by 82 runs while South Africa won by 10 wickets.

Sri Lanka will be placed in Group 1 of the Super Eights while South Africa will be in Group 2.
