A swarm of bees briefly interrupted play towards the end of the innings, forcing the players and umpires to lie flat on the ground before the fall of the final wicket.

Dimuth Karunaratne has been giving a steady start to Sri Lanka from the beginning whereas Faf du Plessis has been scoring constantly.

Amla had started walking off the pitch, only for technology to show the ball had pitched outside leg stump, but after being called back he and Du Plessis ushered South Africa serenely to a consolation victory.

Majority were architects of their own downfall, eight of their top nine reaching double figures but no one going beyond 30, while Dwaine Pretorius' three for 25 was the most economical 10-over analysis of the tournament.

Remarkably, Sri Lanka have a genuine shot at the semis.

Kusal Perera was unbeaten on 28 after 10 overs.

The Proteas were composed, clinical and comfortably the better side as they cruised to a 9-wicket win in their Cricket World Cup pool match against Sri Lanka at the Riverside Ground in Durham on Friday.

While Sri Lanka can still make the semifinals, they now cannot pass the Black Caps, sitting five points behind New Zealand with just two games to go. Du Plessis' decision to bowl first paid off, as the seamers made good use of the conditions to dismiss Sri Lanka for a modest 203.

The South Africans made a couple of changes with Jean-Paul Duminy and Pretorius coming in for David Miller and Lungi Ngidi.

Victory for Sri Lanka in all three of their remaining matches will see them in with a strong chance of making the final four, but Hathurusinga knows that they have to overcome a wounded South Africa to keep their campaign alive.
