43.5
Wicket
OUT! Bowled. Lakmal to Tsotsobe. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, missed to silly point. Lakmal got this to seam back into the right hander off the deck and Tsotsobe played all around it. Sri Lanka win the series 4-1 and Angelo Mathews picks up his first series win as captain. Once again the home side dominated with both bat and ball and the Proteas were never really in this one sided series. South Africa managed to get off to a good start today but the Sri Lankan spinners soon put a stop to the runs. The Proteas were not able to build any partnerships and in the end the pressure was too much for the visitors. The home side are worthy winners as they played as a unit and they proved to be a formidable force.
