South Africa won its first ever knock-out match in cricket World Cup history, beating Sri Lanka by nine wickets in their quarter-final at the SCG on Wednesday.

The Proteas dismissed Sri Lanka for 133 before they made light work of the run chase to complete the win from just 18 overs, with Quinton de Kock (78) and Faf du Plessis (21) the not out batsmen.

They will face either New Zealand or West Indies in a semi-final in Auckland next week.

    South Africans were chokers. Lankans are jokers.

    Now the govt should disband the Cricket board and chase all other guys including Sana boy. First of all, chase away the psychologist.

    In the end what matters is not whether you win or lose but how you played the game. Well done Sri lanka Cricket team!

    Eng.M.V.R.Perera Wednesday, 18 March 2015 03:14 PM

    This is the curse of our selection team for not including in the squad the worlds best one day bowler Ajantha Mendis chosen by the ICC for the year 2014 taking 38 wickets in 18 matches at a average of 22 and a strike rate of 21 and he was the only Srilankan to be chosen by the ICC for the year 2014 ODI eleven

    Over confident brought to disaster

    J Palitha Wednesday, 18 March 2015 03:19 PM

    Who inserted the new guys? Why the Senior bowlers were kept away till the last.

    Stupid game. Grown men hitting a ball with a stick with bigger idiots cheering.

    Mad-Hawa Wednesday, 18 March 2015 03:42 PM

    Bad show of new sports minister after all media show !! is it DITTADAMAWEDANIYA KAMMA ?

    What a pathetic send off to the great man Sanga. I mean everyone rants about Mahela, but what did he do to up lift the game is a different story. SL were never prepared coming into this WC. Sanga was the only person that fought like a lion. Now putting this a side its time to build a new team. Firstly, I kindly ask the sports minister to sack Jayasuriya as a selector, both coaches including Maven and vaas. Kindly get a high caliber international coach to rebuild this team.

    Horri Jimonis Wednesday, 18 March 2015 03:45 PM

    Along with Sanga
