  • Right! 2-0 to South Africa, or shall we say, 7-0 to the Proteas, ever since the Tests ended. The Lankans simply have found no arsenal to build on their Test series win and will need to find some magic to try and avoid a whitewash. Do join us on Sunday, March 24, 2019 at Johannesburg at 2.30 pm local (1230 GMT) for all the action from the third and final T20I. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
  • Victorious South African skipper, JP Duminy, feels that it is a very satisfying series win, albeit with a few areas to brush up upon but reckons that it was a complete performance in this game. Praises Hendricks and van der Dussen for staging that century partnership. On Steyn, he calls him a champion, setting things himself in the Powerplay, along with Chris Morris. On Morris, he is amazed with the stuff he provides with the new ball and also at the end. Praises Isuru Udana for his terrific knock but will take the win. On his dropped catch and then affecting the run out. JP says that he was fortunate that the ball did not go far after he dropped it. Is looking forward for the final game on Sunday, aiming to end the series on a high.
  • RASSIE VAN DER DUSSEN HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. On his record stand with Hendricks, Rassie says that both the players compliment each other nicely and enjoyed their partnership. Adds that Hendricks scores in different areas than him and hence bowling to both of them would be difficult and the pair exploited exactly that. On his World Cup chances, van der Dussen says that he can only work on the opportunities he gets and continue to work harder. On his game plans, Rassie says that one just needs to be aware about all oppositions, one's strengths and one's weaknesses. Adds that now he will rest but tomorrow he will check and analyze how he played tonight.
  • Sri Lankan skipper, Lasith Malinga, feels that the Lankans bowled well at the start but lost it towards the end. Reckons that 175 was a gettable target on a good pitch like this. Praises Isuru Udana for his fight but laments the lack of support for him. Admits that the first six overs need a partnership to set the tone, which is the talk in the dressing room but throughout the tour, his team has not had it and hopes that the players learn. Praises Udana again for knowing his responsibility and batting sensibly. On himself being 2 wickets away from becoming the leading wicket-taker in T20Is, Malinga smiles and says that he will continue giving his best and just try to restrict the flow of runs. On his near future, Lasith says that he will continue to play as long as his body allows him to and will give it his all in every game.
  • Save aside that assault from Udana, otherwise it was a good bowling scorecard for the home side. Dale Steyn struck twice in the very first over while Morris broke the backbone of the Lankan innings taking 2 in one over. Sipamla had a tough outing but Pretorius and Shamsi ensured that things were in control. Please do stay tuned for the presentation...
  • An unbeaten 84 from 48 balls, with 8 fours and 6 sixes. Spare a thought for this man - Isuru Udana Tillakaratna. He came out all guns blazing and took the Protean attack to the cleaners, bashing everyone. Had he got some support at the other end, who knows, Sri Lanka might have even pulled off a coup.
  • Chasing 181 to win, one needed a good start, if one is a batting team. Instead, South Africa got a terrific start with the ball. 1/1, 5/2, 31/3, 31/4, 56/5... the wickets just kept falling one after the other. In fact at one stage, the Lankans were falling well short of even 100 but Udana's heroics got them so close.
  • Not a bad effort from Sri Lanka at all. Sorry. From Isuru Udana. He has single-handedly brought the Lankans so close, probably within a couple of bad balls within victory. But to be honest, the Lankans did not deserve to win and they did not.
  • 19.6 Outside off, pushed towards long on for a single to end the game. JUST A 16-RUN VICTORY FOR SA.
  • 19.5 SIX! Ho ho ho! The match might be over but not the effort. A short ball, Udana launches into this one and pummels it over mid-wicket!
  • 19.4 A short ball, outside off, Isuru pulls it uppishly but it almost carries to Reeza Hendricks at deep mid-wicket who dives to take it. Replays show that it was a touch short.
  • 19.3 SAFE! Comedy of errors. Slower ball, fuller outside off, Udana reaches out to sweep and drags it through mid-wicket. He is initially happy with the single but Vandersay is halfway down the track to shake hands with him. Seeing Udana stationary, Vandersay stops. But now, Isuru starts to run. There is a run out on offer at the striker's end but the throw comes at the bowler's end who fumbles. By that time, Vandersay gets in. Now, Sipamla picks the ball and has a shy at the keeper's end but misses. The keeper collects the ball and disturbs the stumps and appeals. It is referred upstairs but replays show that Udana's dive has got him in. Two runs overall.
  • Confusion, confusion! Is it a run out in the end?
  • 19.2 Misses out. Without any illegal delivery, this match is done. Full and outside off, IU gives himself room to the leg side again, aims to go off side but finds short extra cover.
  • 19.1 SIX! Udana continues his party. Moves to 75! Full and outside off, Isuru gives himself room to the leg side, waits for the ball to come to him and swings it over long off!
