What a dramatic finish, Sri Lanka stealing the series thanks to Seekkuge Prasanna’s 37 off 16 and a little cameo from Asela Gunaratne, after Niroshan Dickwella provided the platform. You have to think Lungi Ngidi’s injury was costly for South Africa, since that meant JJ Smuts having to bowl a couple of expensive overs (and the numerous dropped catches didn’t help) – but you have to give SL a pat on the back, after the adversity they have faced. No Angelo Mathews, two others in the squad injured as well, victorious only once in the previous five games… But they pulled off an excellent run chase to take the spoils in Cape Town. Sets things up nicely for the ODIs to come
