Sri Lanka will aim for nothing but a win to keep themselves alive in the ongoing World Cup when they take on South Africa at the Riverside Cricket Stadium on Friday.
Sri Lanka are currently seventh in the standings with two wins and two no-results, but two points would take them straight up to fifth, just below England, who are themselves in a fight to make the last four now. Just like Pakistan's win over New Zealand opened up the tournament, same would happen if the Lankan Tigers manage to defeat the Proteas. For that, Sri Lanka will hope for its players to come out with an inspiring performance as they did against England where they defended 233. Lasith Malinga will once again be the key for Sri Lanka's success in what is a do-or-die game for them.
South Africa, on the other hand, would aim to regain some lost pride with a consolation victory against Lanka. With just a win from seven games, the Faf du Plessis led side are currently placed at the second last spot in the 10-team table. However, with nothing to lose, South Africa will be eager to prove themselves by winning their remaining two matches and upset the teams that still stand a chance.
