Sri Lanka Held to Its Lowest One-Day Score in South Africa Loss

Jan. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Sri Lanka was held to its lowest one-day score in a 258-run loss to South Africa to open their five-game cricket series.

Morne Morkel took 4-10 and Lonwabo Tsotsobe was 3-19 as Sri Lanka was bowled out for 43 in reply to the host’s 301-8 in Paarl.

Sri Lanka eclipsed its previous low score of 55 against the West Indies in 1986. It also tied for the fourth-lowest score ever, matching Pakistan’s total against the West Indies in 1993.

Hashim Amla scored 112 and Jacques Kallis added 72 as South Africa finished 301-8, while Lasith Malinga took five wickets for the visitors. The second game will be played in East London in three days.
