South Africa suffers third worst ODI defeat

Akila Dananjya bagged 6 wickets for 29 runs and helped the home side to defeat South African by 178 runs in the fifth and final ODI at Khettarama a short while ago. It was South Africa’s third-worst ODI defeat. Chasing 300 to win, the visitors were bowled out for 121 in 24.4 overs. Lahiru Kumara also picked up two wickets. However, the visitors won the series 3 – 2. Earlier, Angelo Mathews finished three runs short of a first ODI hundred in Sri Lanka and first against South Africa, but his run-a-ball 97 took Sri Lanka to an imposing total of 299 for 8 on a surface that is slowing down. As a result, South Africa will need to pull off the highest successful chase at this venue and the hosts can be satisfied with their most complete batting performance in a full inning in this series. Four fifty partnerships held together with an innings in which Sri Lanka showed aggression against an inconsistent but ever-threatening South African pack.
