  • 20.6

    Suranga Lakmal to Junior Dala. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Kumara.

    What a finish! There was no predicting this one going into the final over, it could have gone either way but Sri Lanka come out victorious. Lots of cameos by the South African batsmen almost got them home but the real highlight was the 100 partnership between Thisara Perera and Dasun Shanaka, with some high quality hitting and an excellent maiden ODI half century for the latter. Sri Lanka have salvaged some pride in this series and will be looking for another win in the final ODI.
