Marco Jansen is all over the Sri Lanka Cricket Team in the second innings of the 4th match of the ICC World Cup 2023. The match is currently taking place at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi it has been all about Proteas. 

Sri Lanka while chasing the target of 429 runs lost early wickets. The credit for that goes to Marco Jansen with both ball and on the field. While the wickets he took were for everyone to praise, he displayed a staggering effort in the field that sent Sadeera Samarawickrama packing. 

It was during the 14th over when Gerald Coetzee bowled a good-length cross-seam delivery. Sadeera Samarawickrama closed the face of the bat too early as he tried to clip it away. The ball caught the leading edge and went to mid-on, where Marco Jansen took a brilliant low catch.

Sadeera Samarawickrama scored 23 runs off 19 balls. He smashed 9 fours and 1 six in his innings. After his wicket, Sri Lanka had a partnership between Charith Asalanka (79) and Dasun Shanaka that brought them back into the game. 

But after that Charith Asalanka lost his wicket and Sri Lanka was put again on the back foot. South Africa are on the top in the game and would be looking to close the game early to boost their NRR, which might come in handy during the fag end of the tournament.
