Faf du Plessis proud of winning start in T20 series against Sri Lanka

Islamabad, Aug 3 (ANI): Captain Faf du Plessis said he was extremely proud of his boys after his side South Africa overcame Sri Lanka in an exciting 12-run victory in the first Twenty20 international in Colombo, where JP Duminy starred with both bat and ball.

According to The Daily Times, the tourists, restricted to a modest 115-6 after electing to bat, bounced back to stop Sri Lanka at 103-9 in front of a packed house of 30,000 at the Premadasa stadium.

It was a morale-boosting win for South Africa over the world's top-ranked Twenty20 side following an embarrassing 4-1 defeat in the last one-day series, the report said. (ANI)
