The Islanders have missed a golden opportunity to put themselves in contention for the semi-final spot. They are not completely out yet but their chances of qualifying to the top four stage are looking quite bleak now.
In their match against South Africa, the batting of Sri Lanka collapsed badly as they only managed to score 203 giving 3 wickets to the right arm pacer Dwaine Pretorius.
Sri Lanka will have to win both of their remaining two matches against India & West Indies and also they will have to wait for the results of other matches to go in their favor. Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis scored half-centuries for South Africa in their chase of 203 runs.
