South Africa beat Sri Lanka by five wickets

South Africa defeated Sri Lanka by five wickets to win the second one-day international at Buffalo Park on Saturday and take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Sri Lanka made 236 for six in their 50 overs, with South Africa reaching their target with eight balls to spare. Dinesh Chandimal and Upul Tharanga hit half-centuries in a battling Sri Lankan performance in the second one-day international against South Africa at Buffalo Park on Saturday.

Seeking to come back after a record defeat in the first match in Paarl, Sri Lanka made 236 for six after being sent in on a slow pitch on an overcast day.

Tharanga hit 66 and Chandimal 92 not out as Sri Lanka made some amends after being bowled out for a record low 43 in Paarl.

Sri Lanka made another poor start, with captain Tillekeratne Dilshan run out for his second successive nought and Kumar Sangakkara caught behind for three as they struggled to 21 for two after 10 overs.

Tharanga and Chandimal put on 84 for the third wicket to build a foundation for a late innings acceleration that yielded 109 runs off the last 15 overs.
