SL vs SA 3rd ODI Match Preview

Sri Lanka

After some brilliant performance in the 1st game, the Lankans had to face disappointment in the second game. Bowling first, Chamika Karunaratne gave them the first breakthrough but after that, it was the Janneman Malan show.

Chameera and Karunaratne were the picks from the bowlers and both picked up 2 wickets each. Hasaranga also bowled decently and picked up one wicket. With the bat, they completely looked clueless. Their top order was dismissed in single digits.

Asalanka continued his good form in the series and played a wonderful knock of 77 runs. Other than him, no other batter was able to play a big knock and were bundled out for 197.

They will hope for a better performance from their batters and would look to win the series.

South Africa

The Proteas have leveled the series 1-1 after winning the last game by 67 runs. Opting to bat first in the last game, their batters did a brilliant job and posted up a total of 283 runs in 47 overs.

Janneman Malan was the pick of the batters and played a fantastic knock of 121 runs. Newcomer Reeza Hendricks also played a fine knock of 51 runs and steadied the ship.

Their bowlers also did a marvelous job after an average performance in the first game. Tabriaz Shamsi was brilliant with the ball and picked up 5 wickets after an ordinary performance in the first game.

The Visitors will look to continue their dominance in the next game as well and seal the series.
