Dinesh ChandimalFull Scorecard

Match presentation:

The Man of the Match is Dinesh Chandimal, for his battling 43.

AB de Villiers: "Much better game from us, the bowling did okay, the batsmen let us down, very disappointing. It's not over yet, three big games coming up for us now. Amla is injured, not too serious, hopefully we'll get him ready for the next match. He was scheduled to come out to bat after the next wicket fell. I think we have the potential and the talent in the batting unit." He says the much-improved fielding was one of the positives today.

Dinesh Chandimal: "When I went to bat, we were four down, I just assessed the pitch and then played my normal game. We played on the same pitch before, that's why I opted to bat first. Angelo will come in for the next game, we have our fingers crossed for winning the game."

What a farce!! Duckworth Lewis takes off 50 runs and 21 overs!? I thought the more wickets you had lost the worse off you were? Completely ridiculous - who said batting second pays in rain affected games?
