Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller contributed vital cameos, with 156 runs coming off the last 11 overs, further solidifying South Africa's dominance in the match.

Sri Lanka, faced with a daunting target, saw Kusal Mendis play a brilliant 42-ball 76, featuring eight sixes and four boundaries. Mendis launched an incredible assault on the South African bowlers, smashing three sixes off Lungi Ngidi and two more off Jansen, amassing 35 runs in just two overs.

Although Mendis's valiant effort gave Sri Lanka a glimmer of hope, South Africa ultimately proved too strong. Charith Asalanka's 65-ball 79 and skipper Shanaka's 68 lent some respectability to Sri Lanka's total, and they eventually finished on 326.

The remarkable display of batting in this World Cup clash left fans in awe and set new milestones in the history of the tournament, reaffirming the dominance of South Africa in the contest.
