South Africa elect to bat in key match

Captain of South Africa cricket team AB de villiers have won the toss and elected to bat in the tough and do or die match for South Africa. Hashim amla, the no.1 player in ICC rankings is also not playing due to his knee injury. 

The decision of captain had not benefited the team as they have scored only 223/7  in 50 overs. Remember its the do or die match for South Africa because they had already lost their 2 matches against Srilanka.
The team of srilanka is as follows : 

 Sri Lanka: Angelo Mathews (capt), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Perera, Rangana Herath, Ajantha Mendis, Lasith Malinga, Thisara Perera.

The team of South Africa is as follows : 

South Africa: AB de Villiers (capt), Alviro Petersen, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, Ryan McLaren, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Robin Peterson, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

Now srilankans are going to bat on. South Africans will have to put their best as they have not scored much runs . Hope miller will do a damage t o srilanka . See the match and see the results. Good bye
