Dwaine Pretorius took wickets of both of them. This was the point when things started going out of control for Sri Lankan team and they looked helpless.

Malinga took one wicket only and others were unable to do so. Amla was also in action and scored his 39th ODI Half-century and a total of 80 runs. Plessis was near to score the century but he made 96 runs. He completed his 35th ODI Half-century today. It was the first time when South African players reached the score of more than 70 runs.
Regardless, what the results are, the world saw that both teams put their best efforts to win the game. It was a worth-watching game between these two teams. The crews were in the fighting mode and they gave a tough team to each other.
