Kagiso Rabada and Tabraiz Shamsi claimed four wickets each to help South Africa dismiss Sri Lanka for 193 in 34.3 overs in the first one-day international in Dambulla on Sunday.

Batsman Kusal Perera hit an attacking 81 to lift Sri Lanka from a precarious 36-5 after putting on a crucial 92-run stand with Thisara Perera, who made 49. The hosts elected to bat first.

Rabada, South Africa's pace spearhead, rattled the Sri Lankan top-order with his first three strikes while Shamsi returned career-best ODI figures of 4-33.

    Bookie parlor ground and captain hoodoo continues.

    Another pathetic batting performance from SL again. Firstly, Matthews should just be dropped or he should retire. Such a let down been a senior player and his performance has deteriorated over last few years. Secondly, how Samaraweera became the batting coach is questionable when he was a hopeless batsman. SL is not at all WC competitive and far behind expectations.

    Bring Dimuth to the side.

    Should bring Dimuth to the side to hold the inning and bat the 50 over quota. Just like how Gurusinghe anchored the innings in world cup winning era. We need a solid batsman who can bat through innings. Hats off to Kusal Janith and Thisara for fighting wonderful innings.

    A fundamental rethink of the country's cricket development structure is required.From my observations the only criteria to be a coach in SL is to have played the game. There is little or no coach development strategy by SLC.We all know that knowing how to play the game and coaching at any level are two different concepts!
