South Africa skipper AB de Villiers was all praise for leg-spinner Imran Tahir, who took four wickets as they beat Sri Lanka by 96 runs to begin their ICC Champions Trophy campaign in style on Saturday. Batting first, Hashim Amla scored his 25th ODI hundred to guide the Proteas to a competitive total of 299/6. In reply, the Sri Lanka openers added 69 runs in 50 deliveries but a fine spell of spin bowling from Imran Tahir clinched the match for South Africa.
