Sri Lanka vs South Africa 3rd ODI Scorecard Update

Hello and welcome to the 3rd ODI between Sri Lanka and South Africa at Pallekele. Will a change in venue bring about a change in fortunes for the struggling visitors? They are 0-2 down, and need to win at all costs to stay alive in the 5-match series. A win for Sri Lanka will give them an unassailable 3-0 lead.

South African skipper AB de Villiers won the toss and decided to bat in third game of the series against Sri Lanka at Pallekele. Below watch the Live Scorecard Update.

Angelo Mathews will return to lead the hosts, who are already 2-0 up in the series. Dinesh Chandimal, the replacement captain, did a good job in the first two games, bagging the Man of the Match award in the last match. Mathews' return would mean an added edge to the bowling as the action moves to Pallekele. The pitch at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium is known to assist fast bowlers and with the likes of Malinga, Perera and Mathews in the XI, the hosts will no doubt prove to be a dangerous unit.

While Mathews comes back to add more firepower to Sri Lanka, South Africa will probably have to do without Hashim Amla, the opener for the rest of the tour. Already without Dale Steyn, the bowling has looked ordinary and Amla's absence from the batting line-up would mean a fragile side, at least on paper.
