Live Scores and Stats - Sri Lanka vs South Africa 3rd ODI – 7th Sept

With the series tied at 1-1, the 3rd ODI will effectively be the final of the series. Both teams would like to give in their best to claim the series.


Current Form Sri Lanka and South Africa:


South Africa bounced back very well in the second ODI and defeated Sri Lanka by 67 runs.


Due to rain, the match was reduced to 47 overs per side. South Africa won the toss and elected to bat first. Aiden Markram lost his wicket early on. But Janneman Malan kept finding the gaps at ease and he partnered with Reeza Hendricks at number 3 to provide a fantastic start for South Africa. Reeza Hendricks was dismissed by Dhananjaya de Silva in the 28th over of the innings. Janneman in the meanwhile got to his half century and he started playing more aggressive shots post that. Heinrich Klaasen and Janneman Malan added quick 86 runs for the 4th wicket. Janneman Malan was dismissed by Chameera after making a spectacular 121 off 135 balls. On the back of his effort, South Africa got to a respectable total of 283 for 6 in 47 overs.


Chasing 283, Sri Lanka lost their 3 top order batters before the end of the 6th over. Dhananjaya de Silva too perished in the 15th over when he was dismissed by Tabraiz Shamsi. Dasun Shanaka lit up some hopes for the hosts by sharing a 64 run partnership for the 5th wicket with Charith Asalanka. Once Shanaka fell, the lower middle simply crumbled like a pack of cards. In the end, Sri Lanka were bowled out for 197, as South Africa won the second ODI game by 67 runs.
