Sri Lanka vs South Africa 1st ODI highlights: South Africa’s chase of 194 saw a few bumps on the road. But against sheer determination and masterful strokeplay from JP Duminy, the hosts had to eventually bow down. Duminy scored his 26th ODI fifty to take Proteas to a 5-wicket win in the first ODI. The innings started off with a setback with Hashim Amla and Aiden Markram being dismissed on back-to-back deliveries by Akila Dananjaya. Skipper Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock stitched a solid partnership, before both the batsmen were dismissed in quick succession. David Miller was too dismissed by Suranga Lakmal. But Duminy kept his cool and steered the visitors for an easy victory, with 19 overs to spare.
