Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: South Africa vs Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI, Durban

South Africa lead the series 2-0

Andile Phehlukwayo's late blitz (15-ball 38*) has propelled South Africa to 331 for 5 while David Miller was struggling to get the big shots going. The hosts added 99 runs in the last 10 overs to set Sri Lanka a massive target.

WICKET Dwaine Pretorius got a good start and had the best opportunity to cement his place in the side as the second all-rounder in the side. But he is undone by a fine slower delivery from Isuru Udana.

Kamindu Mendis has bagged his first wicket in ODI cricket. Rassie van der Dussen is too early on his pull and is trapped legbefore. He goes for a bizarre review but the ball tracking shows that the ball would have hit the middle of the middle stumps. South Africa lose their fourth wicket!

Rassie van der Dussen further strengthens his case for a place in the starting XI at the world cup with his fourth ODI fifty, continuing hos good form. It has been a steady innings so far but it needs a bit of acceleration from hereon

Rassie van der Dussen has played some effective knocks so far in his brief career. But today will be a good test to see how he does in the death overs.

WICKET Quinton de Kock's fine innings comes to an end. And again, he is disappointed. Kasun Rajitha, who he had carted all around the ground has the last laugh. Time for the middle order to stand up and take South Africa past the 300-run mark.

Quinton de Kock has ensured the start isn't wasted this time around. After venting his frustration in the dressing in the previous game for missing out on the ton, today he has ensured he reaches the three-figure mark - his 14th hundred in ODIs.

WICKET Lasith Malinga returns to the attack right after the drinks break and strikes rightaway. Looking to play the pull, Faf du Plessis edges the ball to the 'keeper. A much-needed wicket for Sri Lanka as the century-stand had put South Africa in command of the contest.

Quinton de Kock has brought up his half-century - fourth successive in ODIs - with a sublime straight drive. Sri Lankan bowlers haven't posed much of a challenge as yet.

Quinton de Kock has continued his form from the previous game. Even after losing his opening partner early, he has looked in little trouble as South Africa bring up their 50.

Isuru Udana, who was brought into the game, has struck early. Reeza Hendricks checks his drive on the up and gives the mid off fielder an easy catch. First strike for Sri Lanka.

Quinton de Kock is off the mark with a boundary through the mid wicket region. Follows it up with another. Lasith Malinga, with the first new ball, isn't getting his line right.

South Africa (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Faf du Plessis (c), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir

Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Oshada Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Kamindu Mendis, Thisara Perera, Akila Dananjaya, Lasith Malinga (c), Isuru Udana, Kasun Rajitha

Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to field. Kamindu Mendis will be making his debut. Apart from Kamindu, Isuru Udana also comes in to the side in place of Dhananjaya de Silva and Vishwa Fernando

Hello and welcome to the third one-dayer between South Africa and Sri Lanka. Two wins in two games might have put South Africa in a good position in the series but they will still be far from satisfied from the performances they have put in so far, much like Sri Lanka.
