Statistical Highlights of South Africa Vs Sri Lanka, First Sunfoil ODI at Boland Park, Paarl

Sri Lanka were demolished for a paltry score of 43 in yesterday’s First ODI at the Boland Park in Paarl. Morne Morkel and Lonwabo Tsotsobe put the Lankans on the mat by taking wickets in a hurry with the new balls. Sri Lanka towards the end just managed to avoid creating a new lowest ever total in ODI history. However, Sri Lanka couldn’t get past their previous lowest ODI score which was 55 against the West Indies in 1986 at Sharjah.
