Sri Lanka Women levelled their One-Day International series with South Africa Women by winning the third match in Colombo by four wickets.

After the second game was abandoned due to bad weather, venues for the remaining matches have been shifted to try to get the series completed.

This game was also shortened due to weather to 27 overs per side.

Ama Kanchana took three wickets to restrict South Africa to 139 for seven with Mignon du Preez top scoring with 34.

Sri Lanka were set an adjusted target of 143 to win and thanks to Chamari Atapattu's, they got there.

They slipped from 106 for three to 128 for six as South Africa almost hauled themselves back into the contest before Chamari Polgampola and Hasini Perera saw the home side to victory.

With the two sides claiming three points apiece in the ICC Women's Championship, South Africa sit in fourth place and Sri Lanka fifth.

South Africa won the opening match by 53 runs.
