    We'll leave it there for today. Sri Lanka's semi-final hopes have been dented by that comprehensive defeat.

    You can have a read of Matt Henry's match report here and we've updated the permutations piece and why that result is good news for England.

    While Stephan Shemilt has been taking a look at how England can still become world champions.

    We'll see you tomorrow for the double header - Pakistan v Afghanistan and Australia v New Zealand.

    Bye for now.

    Right, let's have a very quick recap of the best moments.

  9. 'We finally did ourselves justice'

    South Africa captain Faf du Plessis: "It feels like it's a long time coming - we finally did ourselves justice.

    "It was set up by a very good bowling performance. We've been trying to get Dwaine into the team so badly but we couldn't find the right combination. Today he came in instead of Lungi and did really well.

    "It feels bittersweet, it doesn't feel like it means too much. But the basics of batting were shown today. We've not had guys bat long and build big partnerships. One big partnership and everything looks much easier.

    "The Bangladesh loss was the one which took the wind out of our sails. It sucker-punched us in the stomach and we took the hangover into our next game. But it could have worked the other way for us if we'd got on to a roll."

    Partnerships are key - when Sri Lanka had one, for the second wicket, they were in control of the game. You put the pressure back on the fielding side. Twenties and thirties don't win you games. It's not enough.

  12. Post update

    Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne: "The wicket was a bit slow and South Africa bowled well, they kept it tight and kept building pressure. We couldn't get the singles so we had to keep going for the big shots.

    "We needed to take wickets to stand a chance of winning and build pressure. We've got to think about that going forward - how we can build pressure and create mistakes."

    Sri Lanka only seemed to have two ways - a long single or blast it for four. There was no manipulation of the field.

    Fernando and Perera worked the pace out, they looked in complete control, and South Africa were finding it hard to bowl at them. Then Fernando plays a big shot to a good ball and lobs it to mid-off. Within two overs, Perera has dragged one on playing a nothing shot.

    We're just waiting for the two captains to come out and share their post-match thoughts.

    We'll bring them to you as soon as we can.

    Sri Lanka will go away from this game thinking they have not given it a go.

  17. Post update

    You can say that again, Daggers.

    We started debating about 15 overs into that reply whether this had been the worse game of the World Cup so far.

    It gives Afghanistan v South Africa a run for its money, I'd say.

    It's not been a thriller!

  19. Man of the match

    South Africa's Dwaine Pretorious, who took 3-25: "I'm happy we got over the line and I could play a part in that. I'm glad I was ready to take my opportunity today and contribute to the team. Me and Faf spoke after the third over about hitting the top of off being the best way of going about it. I'm stoked we won today but disappointed it's come late."
