Gideon Haigh in The Australian. 24 March 2015

“Motivation oozed from the [South African] team’s vehement and comprehensive quarter-final rout of Sri Lanka last week. But Sri Lanka were ­always this Cup’s pretenders, a ­Potemkin cricket team behind the facade of Kumar Sangakkara and Tillakaratne Dilshan. Other teams have sought to test South Africa’s fifth bowler; Sri Lanka donated him a hat-trick.”
