South African fast bowler, Wayne Parnell, has credited his ability to ‘stay in the moment’ for his turnaround bowling spell in the opening ICC Champions Trophy match against Sri Lanka at The Oval on Saturday. Parnell came under fire in his opening spell going for 45 runs in five overs, but pulled it back impressively to go for nine runs in his last five overs.

Hashim Amla completed back-to-back centuries in ODIs against Sri Lanka to set the Standard Bank Proteas up for a 96-run victory in their opening Pool B ICC Champions Trophy match at The Oval in London on Saturday.
