In the chase, the South African team chased down this score easily. After the defeat, the Sri Lankan captain said that we still have 3 matches left and we will try to do better in them.

Sri Lanka captain Wanindu Hasaranga said after the loss, “Our batsmen tried to score 160-170 runs. To be honest, it was a 120-run wicket, especially with our bowlers. We played to our strengths, our bowling, so we batted first. We wanted to score big and then defend. It’s the start of the tournament and we have three more games to go, we want to do better especially with our batting talent. If our batting is good then we can do well.
