Both teams come into this fixture after losing their respective first fixture of the T20 World Cup. Sri Lanka defeated Afghanistan while South Africa suffered a defeat at the hands of England on 18 March.
The Proteas were hoping to seal a victory over the Three Lions after they posted a mammoth total of 229 runs for the loss of four wickets. Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla and JP Duminy all scored half centuries and the trio were well supported by David Miller down the order.
In reply, England got off to a good start and Joe Root's 83 off 44 balls helped Eoin Morgan's side bounce back after a defeat at the hands of West Indies in their first T20 World Cup fixture.
Afghanistan lost to Sri Lanka in their opening match. The Lankans comfortably chased a target of 154 runs with seven balls to spare. They will be aware of the threat possessed by South Africa, especially as they look to bounce back after the defeat to England.
