South Africa's Tabraiz Shamsi (r) picked up four wickets in Dambulla.

South Africa cruised to a five-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the first ODI in Dambulla.

Spinner Tabraiz Shamsi (4-33) and paceman Kagiso Rabada (4-41) were the stars for South Africa as the hosts battled to recover from slumping to 36-5. Kusal Perera (81) and Thisara Perera (49) shared a sixth-wicket stand of 92, but Sri Lanka were dismissed for 193 after just 34.3 overs.

The Proteas lost early wickets but skipper Faf du Plessis (47) and Jean-Paul Duminy (53 not out) guided South Africa to their victory target, reaching 196 for five with 114 balls of their 50 overs still remaining.
