Sri Lanka batsman Kusal Perera will miss the remainder of the one-day global series against South Africa due to a hamstring injury.

Sri Lanka's sorry display was best summed up by their skipper Lasith Malinga's sloppy dismissal, as he was run out for a duck when dozily failing to ground his bat as he made his crease.

Sri Lanka's decision to open the bowling with the spin of De Silva paid off with the early wicket of Hendricks but De Kock and the recalled Aiden Markram (29) set South Africa well on the way to victory with a second-wicket stand of 56 off 63 balls.

Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn and Lungi Ngidi will spearhead the South African seam attack at the tournament, but Nortje is putting his hand up as the backup option.

New cap Priyamal Perera replaced the injured Kusal Perera, while all-rounder Dhananjaya de Silva was selected ahead of off-spinner Akila Dananjaya.

Fast bowler Anrich Nortje (3-57) was the pick of the home attack, though he suffered in the late onslaught from Udana.

However, Isuru Udana scored a quickfire 78 off 57 balls, hitting seven fours and four sixes, as Sri Lanka's last three wickets managed to add 92 runs, with Udana doing majority of the scoring.
