South Africa vs Sri Lanka: South Africa will be taking on Sri Lanka in the third T20I of the three-match series at the Buffalo Park – East London, South Africa on Wednesday, April 03. Sri Lanka won the second game in Potchefstroom by seven wickets to level the series 1-1. Both teams will aim to win the final fixture of the series to seal the series.

After a resounding win in the first T20I, South Africa let the foot off the pedal and allowed the visitors to dominate them in the second match. Batting first, they managed to put just 137-8 on the board, and Sri Lanka polished off the target with seven balls to spare. The South Africans sorely missed their regular captain, Laura Wolvaardt, who was out due to illness. On the bowling front, Marizanne Kapp has contributed with both bat and ball and is expected to do the same here.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka made a comeback after the 79-run thumping they received in the first T20I. However, they played out of their skins to surprise the hosts and restrict them to a below-par score. Leading from the front, Sri Lanka’s skipper, Chamari Athapaththu set the tone with figures of 1 for 18 and maintained an economy of 4.50. Seam bowler Achini Kulasuriya further reinforced Sri Lanka’s dominance with an outstanding spell, securing 2 wickets for 26 runs. The team will expect the same performance to win the series.
