Sri Lanka took on South Africa in the 1st Quarter Final of the ICC Cricket World Cup in Sydney today.

JP Duminy registered South Africa's first World Cup hat-trick in the first quarter-final against Sri Lanka at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Wednesday.

The off-spinner dismissed Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews with the final ball of his eighth over and returned to send back Nuwan Kulasekara and Tharindu Kaushal with the first two deliveries of his next to achieve the milestone.

Sri Lanka was easily bowled out for 133.

South Africa need to score 134, from 50 overs, to win their first ever World Cup knock-out game.
