In the Durban ODI, Quinton de Kock was on a role with the bat. The opener scored 121 from 108 balls that laid the foundation for a big score. Rassie van der Dussen along with handy contributions from the middle-order took the team to 331/5 after 50 overs.
Sri Lanka was never in the chase as they lost 2 wickets early. As they reached 75/2 after 16 overs, the rain gods intervened and halted the game for a long time. The DLS method came into play and reduced the target to 194 from 24 overs. After the resumption, they needed 118 from 8 overs. It proved to be far too much as they could reach 121/5 only.
