The Centurion ODI now seems like complete domination by the Proteas as they won by 113 runs. But in reality, the visitors had a great chance to win. After South Africa got off to a great start with an opening stand of 91, they were on course for a big score. Even the middle-order set a great platform after Quinton de Kock’s 94 and Faf du Plessis’s 57.
But Sri Lanka fought back at the death and restricted the hosts to 251. However, they faltered while batting. There was no partnership of any substance as they lost wickets at constant intervals. The South African bowlers were all over the batsmen as they dismissed the opposition for 138.
