20.6
No Runs
Perera to McLaren. Back of a length, off stump backing away driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Sangakkara. The rain is pretty steady now. The umpires have called for the covers and at this stage South Africa are 17 runs behind the par score which means they will lose this match if it is called off. All the covers are coming on now so this should signal the end of the game. The rain is only getting heavier and it has to stop completely for the covers to be removed again. 11:10pm Local: Official word is that the game has been called off and Sri Lanka win by 17 runs (D/L Method). There are lots of positives to take away from this game for the visitors even though they lost. The fielding was back to its best and the bowling was a big improvement from game one. Sri Lanka now lead the series 2-0 and a wonderful knock from the captain Chandimal has earned him the man of the match award.
