Sri Lanka legends beat South Africa, will meet Sachin Tendulkar’s India in finals on Sunday- Sri Lanka Legends set up a final with India Legends in the Road Safety World Series T20 after Tillakratne Dilshan’s outfit defeated Jonty Rhodes-led South Africa Legends by eight wickets here on Friday.

Sri Lankans romped home to a comfortable win chasing down a 126-run target with 16 balls to spare.

Riding No.4 batsman Chinthaka Jayasinghe’s 47 not out (25b, 8×4, 1×6) and southpaw Upul Tharanga’s unbeaten 39 (44b, 5×4), Sri Lanka finished at 129/2 in 17.2 overs. Captain Dilshan scored 18 and Sanath Jayasuriya, too, got as many runs.

For South Africa, opener Morne van Wyk starred with a half century from 57 balls, including eight boundaries.
