In-form Sri Lanka spinner Ajantha Mendis is doubtful for today's match against South Africa due to a side strain he suffered during their opener against Zimbabwe.

Mendis, who returned the best figures by a bowler in T20 cricket with six wickets for eight runs in Tuesday's match, went off the field soon after he had completed his quota of four overs. "Mendis' injury is our only worry," Sri Lanka team manager Charith Senanayake said.

Both teams have already qualified for the Super Eight stage.
