That's all from this match. South Africa got an easy win over Sri Lanka while Afghanistan upset Pakistan in the other warm-up game. On Saturday, teams like Australia, England, India and New Zealand will be in action. Do join us at 1030 local (0930 GMT) for the coverage. Cheers!

South Africa captain, Faf du Plessis says he is happy with the overall result as the bowlers and the batters got their chances. On Andile Phehlukwayo, Faf mentions that he is a wicket-taker. Says it was just about spending time out in the middle as it is different from the 20-over format. Informs that Quinton de Kock was just being rested.

Sri Lanka skipper, Dimuth Karunaratne says that it was a flat wicket and reckons that they got off to a good start but could not capitalize. Feels it was not easy against the bowling attack of South Africa. On his personal form, he says he just does basic things and not the fancy things. Adds that it is not easy to bat early on in the innings. Ends by informing us that the injuries to Udana and Avishka aren't serious and they will be back for the next warm-up game.

Andile Phehlukwayo says that it was a good performance and a good outing for them as they got what they wanted. Tells that he just likes to do whatever the team wants him to do. On his preference, Phehlukwayo mentions that he would like to bowl early on. States that it was a good learning experience as they learnt a lot about their bowling and batting. Adds that he is looking to take the confidence heading into the tournament.

South Africa put up a decent bowling show. Lungi Ngidi provided the initial breakthroughs while Kagiso Rabada bagged the prized scalp of Dimuth Karunaratne. The best bowler on show though was Andile Phehlukwayo who took a 4-wicket haul. Their main spinners were not too impressive as both Imran Tahir and Tabraiz Shamsi struggled. Another thing worth mentioning was the fielding of the African side. Earlier, their batting also clicked and put up a big total, mainly due to the knocks of Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla, and cameos from the lower order. Overall a good outing for them.

Easy victory for South Africa! They never really got pushed in the field and have registered a comprehensive victory. Chasing a 300-plus target, Sri Lanka needed Kusal Perera to fire up front but he bagged a 2-ball duck. Dimuth Karunaratne did well to hold one end up and also constructed a couple of 50-plus partnerships with Kusal Mendis and Angelo Mathews. Although, they never looked like going after the target. Good batting practice for their skipper and Mathews but apart from them, there wasn't much fight shown.

I Tahir to S Lakmal, OUT! That looked out and it is out. A great googly by Tahir to fool the batsman. He lands it around off and Lakmal is caught on the back foot trying to deal with it. Fails to put bat on ball and is rapped on the pads. They appeal and the umpire raises his finger quickly. Lakmal takes the DRS but to no use, it's clipping the top of middle stump. That's it then. SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 87 RUNS!

Suranga Lakmal is given out lbw! Looks plumb but he wants to use the DRS. Hmm...

The last man in is Suranga Lakmal.

D Pretorius to J Vandersay, OUT! Fantastic catch by Duminy. Pretorius offers room outside off and Vandersay rocks back to pack a punch. He fails to keep it down and it goes low towards backward point. JP Duminy stationed there snaps it inches above the ground, great reaction catch from the veteran.

JP Duminy to J Vandersay, Shortish and on off, Vandersay hangs on the back foot and strokes it down to long off for one. 7 runs from the over, not enough though as the RRR is touching almost 11.

Breaking news - Afghanistan have thumped Pakistan in the other warm-up game. Great result for the Afghans. They will be the one team to watch out for upsets in the mega event. No team can afford to take them lightly.

Powerplay 3 signalled by the umpire. Now 5 fielders can be placed outside the 30-yard circle till the end of this game.

A Phehlukwayo to M Siriwardana, OUT! Fourth wicket for Phehlukwayo. Shorter one, well-directed, Siriwardana pulls but without much power and timing. It flies in front of square leg and Aiden Markram takes the simplest of catches in the deep.

JP Duminy to A Mathews, OUT! This is a brilliant running catch from Chris Morris, not easy when you are sprinting back! A loopy full ball around off, Angelo tries to heave it across the line by jumping down the track but gets a big top edge over extra cover. Morris does well to keep his eyes on the ball and catches it safely. The reaction on his face tells you everything, not easy to take those.

A Phehlukwayo to M Siriwardana, FOUR! Crunched! A good length ball around off, Siriwardana forces it through the line and it flies over cover-point for a boundary. Gets off the mark in style.

Milinda Siriwardana is the new man in. No signs of either Thisara Perera or Isuru Udana. Seems Sri Lanka have given up on the chase and just want to get as much game time as possible in the middle.

A Phehlukwayo to J Mendis, OUT! Caught behind! The slower one foxes Jeevan. Phehlukwayo continues to deliver with the ball. A clever change in pace from him as he serves it full and wide outside off. Mendis winds up for a big heave-ho over the leg side but gets a faint outside edge behind to Miller. 119 needed off 73 balls with four wickets left, time running out for Sri Lanka.

A Phehlukwayo to J Mendis, On a length around off, angling away, Jeevan plants his back leg inside the crease and taps it down to point.
