T20 World Cup: Sri Lanka’s shameful defeat, bowlers’ dominance was such that no batsman could even cross 20 runs

New Delhi. T20 cricket is generally considered a game of batsmen, but Monday proved to be the opposite. The fourth match of the T20 World Cup 2024 was completely in the name of the bowlers, who made the batsmen crave for every run. The South African bowlers dominated the match so much that the entire Sri Lankan team was bowled out for 77 runs. However, South Africa also had to sweat to achieve the target that looked easy.

South Africa and Sri Lanka faced each other on the second day of T20 World Cup 2024 i.e. on Monday. The 2014 champion team Sri Lanka won the toss and batted first in this Group D match. Its batsmen did not like this decision. South Africa bowled out Sri Lanka on its lowest score. However, scoring runs was not easy for the South African batsmen either. South Africa won the match by losing 4 wickets in 16.2 overs.

The dominance of the bowlers in this match between South Africa and Sri Lanka can be judged from the fact that no batsman from either team could score more than 20 runs.
