The possibilities of either of the team Sri Lanka and South Africa has been washed away after England defeated Sri Lanka by 10 runs and reached semi finals of the T20 World Cup 2016. So win or a loss of any of the team in the T20 match SA vs SL on 28 March 2016 will not have any affect on the further proceeding of the tournament as both teams are out of the race to semifinals and this match will be played only for pride so that they can return home with a win. The Live score of the match will start from 7:30 pm.
The South African team despite of putting a high score of above 200 runs on the board against West Indies in their very first match of the tournament could not turn it into a win and lost the match to WI. In the second match the team again scored above 200 runs in 20 over against minnows Afghanistan and won the match easily. But the team collapses against the bowling attack of England and scored only 122 runs which the opponent chased with two deliveries remaining and won by three wickets.
Sri Lanka is badly effected by the loss of its experienced cricketer adding to this the injury of Lasith Maliiga has made the situation even worst. Like South Africa, they also have a single win in the tournament that too against the minnows Afghanistan and lost two matches against West Indies and England.
