Cricket news - Live Cricket Score - South Africa vs Sri Lanka, 3rd T20I
Victory: South Africa win by 45 runs (D/L method)
Sri Lanka lose their last four wickets in just nine balls as South Africa complete the formalities and clinch a comfortable victory.
WICKET: Udana's cameo ends
He was Sri Lanka's last real hope but he holes out to long off against Phehlukwayo after a 23-ball 36.
Covers coming off
Sri Lanka will need 183 from 17 overs. That's the revised target. They need another 72 runs from 35 balls. Play starting soon.
Rain stops play
Sri Lanka are on 111/6 after 11.1 overs but rain has stopped play. Isuru Udana continues his big hitting from the previous game by carting Sipamla for three sixes in an over before this break.
Not looking good
WICKET: Perera is run out
He wanders off from the non-strker's end for a single that didn't exist. Hendricks throws down the stumps from mid wicket to catch Perera short.
WICKET: Dala gets one more
Angelo Perera goes swinging. He skies a lofted shot and Miller completes an excellent catch running to his left at long off. Sri Lanka are going down fast.
WICKET: Dala gets one too
Kamindu Mendis is too early into a flick shot. The wicket does look a little two-paced and this one pops up to mid wicket. Soft dismissal and Sri Lanka are crumbling.
WICKET: Two for Phehlukwayo
He traps Avishka Fernando LBW too with a straight one. No review by the right-hander. Sri Lanka slip further.
WICKET: Dickwella's cameo ends
Phehlukwayo cramps Dickwella for room and gets him gloving to the wicketkeeper. End of a 22-ball 38 from the opener.
WICKET: Pretorius gets Dhananjaya
Sri Lanka were adventurous in the powerplay, particularly Dickwella. His partner though remained watchful and eventually falls for 8 to Pretorius, being trapped in front.
Innings break: South Africa finish with 198
Duminy and Pretorius add an unbeaten 71-run stand off just 30 balls to give the innings a perfect finishing touch. It was really an innings of two halves, for the first half South Africa were circumspect but not bogged down and got 70. The last ten overs saw them switch gears effortlessly, adding 128 to finish with a potentially matchwinning total.
Fifty: Pretorius continues the charge
Pretorius hits three consecutive boundaries off Lakmal and goes on to get a quickfire fifty, off just 28 balls.
WICKET: Vandersay gets Hendricks
The spinner has the last laugh. A quicker googly skids through Hendricks' swipe and clatters onto the stumps. End of a useful 66 from South Africa's opener and a 90-run stand with Dwayne Pretorius.
Fifty for Hendricks
He's taken a liking for Vandersay's, tonking him for a couple of sixes. After a relatively watchful start, Reeza Hendricks has just switched gears to race away to a fifty, his second on the trot. South Africa well placed.
WICKET: Markram falls for 15
South Africa hadn't done much in the powerplay, and Markram tries to force the issue in the final one by Lakmal. He got away with one mistimed loft in the over but skies a simple catch to mid on soon after.
South Africa off to a steady start
The openers have not tried to go after the bowling, who have in turn tried a lot of slower ones on this pitch.
Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Niroshan Dickwella(w), Avishka Fernando, Kamindu Mendis, Angelo Perera, Thisara Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Isuru Udana, Akila Dananjaya, Lasith Malinga(c), Jeffrey Vandersay, Suranga Lakmal
South Africa (Playing XI): Aiden Markram, Reeza Hendricks, Jean-Paul Duminy(c), Sinethemba Qeshile(w), David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, Junior Dala, Lutho Sipamla, Tabraiz Shamsi
Toss: Sri Lanka opt to field
Sri Lanka have one final chance to avoid a whitewash. They've had their chances in the T20I series so far but have squandered them. Against a depleted South Africa side, they have one game to end the tour on a high. Can they do it? The toss and teams coming up shortly.
