It went from bad to worse for Sri Lanka as they lost the second consecutive ODI against South Africa. The next game of the series will be played at the Kingsmead, Durban on Sunday. It’s a chance for the hosts to wrap up the series while the Sri Lankans can’t afford another mishap. Keep reading to find out South Africa vs Sri Lanka 3rd ODI Match Prediction.

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.
