Sri Lanka 285/10 (45.2 Ovs) RR: 6.29 | South Africa won by 78 runs

commentary

Not quite a thrilling ODI this, but South Africa won't mind one bit. Sri Lanka will have to do something to reverse their fortunes. As Mathews remarked, they will have to start thinking out of the box and play some fearless cricket to put all the criticism to bed. Else, we might soon find Sri Lanka playing qualifier games. I know that's quite a bold statement to say, but a gander at Sri Lanka's record in the last couple of years only adds fizz to my notion. [The last time they won a bilateral ODI series at home was in November 2015 (vs Windies)] . That's all we've got folks. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Until next time, this Raju Peethala waving goodbye on behalf of Abhinand Raghavendran, Sriram AS and Siva Duraisamy. Ta-ta!!

Faf du Plessis, Proteas Captain: Brilliant today. The batting was fantastic. The guys kept batting aggressively. To see someone play like that on debut was remarkable and that's the great thing about our batting line-up. We have guys putting their hands up every game and putting match-winning performances. Today obviously less spin, but slightly two-paced. We just keep taking wickets with the ball which is the best way to keep the scoring in check. It's about giving guys opportunities and we will try and do the same in the next two as well. I will see how my young (*chuckles*) shoulder reacts tomorrow and assess from there.

Mathews, Sri Lanka captain: Pretty disappointed with the way we started with the ball. Last 10 overs didn't go to plan. 360 was a bit too high on this track. We didn't execute our plans. We want to look forward and get better as a team. Lot of positives in Dhananjaya and Lahiru Kumara, they showed some fight, but Reeza played superbly and JP finished well. We need to try and think out of the box if we are to win a game. As a team we need to play on good wickets and win. Still got two games to go and if we can win those, it would be ideal.

Reeza Hendricks, Man of the Match: I played T20 cricket before, but this was a lot different. I was very happy to make my debut today and most importantly contribute for my team. It's quite difficult to breakthrough into this South African side, quite fortunate today and I managed to score some runs. Wicket was very good and the boys played very well. It's quite similar to back home and as batsmen we were quite happy with that. I didn't know that (when asked if he knew that his knock was the fastest ODI ton by a debutant).

17:54 local: Sri Lanka's ODI miseries multiply with each passing series. Dhananjaya de Silva achieved his highest score in ODI cricket and that has been the only shining light in an otherwise sorry-looking scorecard. They lost 4 wickets inside 12 overs and the move to promote Thisara Perera didn't produce the desired outcome either. The partnership between Dhananjaya de Silva and Akila Dananjaya - 95 - only proved to be effective in reducing the defeat margin. The track was a belter and Sri Lanka will, most definitely, feel that they've missed out on a great opportunity here. Ngidi and Phehlukwayo shared seven wickets between them. In contrast, the hosts' frontline pacers could only manage 2. You know where the game's lost, ain't it?

Lungi Ngidi to Lakmal, out Caught&Bowled!! South Africa seal the series with 2 games to go. What an emphatic turnaround this has been from the Proteas. Meanwhile, this is Sri Lanka's 11th straight loss to South Africa in ODIs. The end: Lakmal pulls a short ball high into the air, it kept swirling for an eternity...Ngidi calls for it and plucks it safely, QDK too came rushing in for the catch, but Ngidi completed the catch sans any fuss. QDK pointed his mitts towards the sky, but he could only reach as far as Ngidi's chest. In the end, they share a smile and hug briefly before the mandatory handshakes. Lakmal c and b Lungi Ngidi 12(15) [4s-1]

Phehlukwayo to de Silva, out Caught by de Kock!! South Africa review: Dhananjaya Silva caught behind? Fair delivery and there's a big spike on UltraEdge. That will and should be out. It's a clean catch from QDK and the verdict from the TV. ump is O-U-T. Slower ball from Phehlukwayo, de Silva gave himself a bit of room and threw everything into that shot, with deafening noise around umpire Nigel Llong fails to spot the tiniest of nicks behind.

Shamsi to Mathews, out Lbw!! Mathews has been given out lbw. He walks off and he returns to go for the review. The TV umpire is disturbed. Fair delivery. There's a spike on the UltraEdge. But, that's bat hitting the ground. What does HawkEye say? Umpire's call on hitting wickets. The on-field call stays. Was a quick leg-break from Shamsi that pitched on middle and spun in to beat Mathews's sweep. The impact was adjacent to the leg-stump and the ball-tracking shows it to be clipping leg. Mathews lbw b Shamsi 32(42) [4s-3 6s-1]

Lungi Ngidi to Kusal Mendis, out Caught by Willem Mulder!! Kusal Mendis has been bounced out by Lungi Ngidi. The bowling change from QDK has worked. A bouncer above shoulder-high from Ngidi and Mendis went for pull despite the ball getting big on him. Doesn't time the pull and holes out at deep square leg. He wasn't in control of the shot. Mulder runs to his right and then forward to complete a low catch, bending forward. Sri Lanka have now lost half their side. Kusal Mendis c Willem Mulder b Lungi Ngidi 31(34) [4s-4]

Willem Mulder to Perera, out Caught by de Kock!! An appeal for a strangle down leg, Mulder is confident. QDK joins in late, they converge. But wait, who's the acting skipper? With Faf off the field, I think QDK himself has taken the matter in his own hands. Showed the T sign and reviewed it. Let's go through the process then; front foot is okay. Waiting for UltraEdge and I tell you, there's a tiny spike as the ball passes the bat and South Africans can start celebrating. And there comes the official verdict -- OUT. Bingo review by the Proteas. It was actually Mulder - who cajoled QDK to take the review and they are spot on. It was a loosener down leg, TP could've let it go all alone and it would've been called a wide. Instead, gets greedy and slides his bat towards the ball - brush off the outer half of his willow and carries to QDK - who makes no mistake. As soon as they saw the spike on the big screen, Mulder and Co. were jumping in joy. Perera c de Kock b Willem Mulder 16(14) [4s-2]

TP gets a reprieve; this short ball rose steeply and the batsman went for the pull. Couldn't tackle the bounce as he gets a top-edge and survives in the end. Oh, looks like Faf has hurt himself and is walking off the field. Hope, it isn't anything serious

Phehlukwayo to Kusal Perera, out Lbw!! Wow. Wow. Phehlukwayo gets his revenge. Could have had both the batsmen, anyway should be satisfied with this wicket. What a comeback. Gets this length ball to nip back into the left-hander, KP was caught in the crease and didn't expect the ball to fizz off the deck. Gets hit on the back pad and was a dead duck. Had a word with his partner and decided to review, in hope I presume. But HawkEye confirmed that the ball was clipping the top of middle-stump. And the on-field call stayed. Only solace is that Sri Lanka don't lose the review. Kusal Perera lbw b Phehlukwayo 27(17) [4s-4]

Just falls short of the ropes, they went upstairs to check if it was a boundary or a six, the third umpire looked at the replays and confirmed that it was a four

Lungi Ngidi to Dickwella, out Caught by du Plessis!! This is a soft dismissal. Dickwella hangs his head down in despondency. Ngidi wears a sort of shocking expression on his face, can't believe his luck. What a captaincy by Faf, knew Dickwella was prone to on-the-up-drives. So decided to position himself at short extra cover. Guess what! Dickwella ended up stroking it straight to him. Falls into the trap and Sri Lanka have lost their first wicket.
