South Africa Thrash Sorry Sri Lanka Despite Udana Heroics

South Africa's David Miller plays a shot during the One Day International cricket match between South Africa and Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka batsman Kusal Perera will miss the remainder of the one-day worldwide series against South Africa due to a hamstring injury. "They (the batsmen) didn't realise their value and take the opportunity to play a long innings".

Sri Lanka were bowled out for 189 in 39.2 overs, their innings rescued to some extent by an extraordinary 58-run final wicket stand between Isuru Udana (78 from 57 balls) and Kasun Rajitha (0).

Sri Lanka have lost all eight ODIs under Malinga's captaincy and the veteran was dismissed in nearly embarrassing circumstances.

Nortje (3-57) had earlier been the chief destroyer of the Sri Lankan top order in reducing them to 131-9, taking the wickets of Avishka Fernando (29) and debutant Priyamal Perera with consecutive balls.

Sri Lanka's sorry display was best summed up by their skipper Lasith Malinga's sloppy dismissal, as he was run out for a duck when dozily failing to ground his bat as he made his crease.

For the Faf du Plessis-led side, Nortje was their most successful bowlers, scalping three wickets while Phehlukwayo returned with two wickets.

"The selectors have chose to add Reeza Hendricks to the squad".

Udana's assault spoilt what was promising to be an excellent day for Nortje, playing in his home town. But he conceded 38 runs, 37 of them to Udana, in his last two overs.

Rixon, the fielding coach, will take charge of the team for the three T20 games between March 19 and 24, Silva said.

Watch the fifth and final ODI between South Africa and Sri Lanka from 10.55am, Saturday on Sky Sports Cricket.
