Reeza Hendricks and Justin Ontong hit rapid half-centuries before Southernmost Africa A's bowlers moulding finished the Sri Lanka A line-up to accomplishment a 161-run finish in the prototypal light of their tri-series with Rhodesia A.

Player Parnell took 3 for 10 and Rory Kleinveldt 3 for 15 as Sri Lanka limped to 108 all out in 28.2 overs. It could hold been worse for Sri Lanka, who were 61 for 8 before No. 10 Kanishka Alvitigala hit 27 from 29 balls - the top valuate of the innings - in a partnership of 38 for the ordinal lattice. Dimuth Karunaratne, with 23, was the only member of the top six to push bingle figures but when he became the gear of two wickets in two balls from Parnell, Sri Lanka's hopes disappeared.

That they had been set 270 to win was mostly imbibe to a 152-run partnership in 23 overs between Hendricks and Ontong. They came together at 65 for 4, after Tharanga Lakshitha had removed Southerly Africa's openers, Elder Elgar and Richard Levi, and far strikes by Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Alvitigala.
