Twitter reactions from South Africa's win over Sri Lanka in Match 35 of the ICC World Cup 2019 at the Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street.

Having bowled out Sri Lanka for 203, South Africa needed one big stand and the senior players stepped up to do just that and ensured Proteas won their second game of the tournament, beating the Islanders by nine wickets in Match 35 of ICC World Cup 2019.

Winning the toss and electing to field first, the Proteas were off to a good start. Sri Lankan skipper Dimuth Karunaratne was dismissed on the very first ball of the game as Kagiso Rabada got the first breakthrough.

The track assisted pacers and Sri Lankan middle order again witnessed a collapse. None of the middle order batsmen managed to convert their starts as Dwaine Pretorius picked up 3 wickets.

There was an interesting segment in the match as a swarm of bees took over the stadium and the cricketers had to lay flat on the ground to avoid getting stung.

In the chase, South Africa lost Quinton de Kock early but half-centuries from Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla saw them home with plenty of time to spare.
