A whitewash at the hands of South Africa so close to the T20 World Cup would be a tough pill to swallow for Sri Lanka, who have been vanquished at Colombo with utter disdain. The rank turner prepared by the hosts to exploit the spin-batting bugbear of the Proteas has backfired big time. Having put a sorry-looking 120/8 on the board, Sri Lanka had to face the wrath of Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks as they were handed a humiliating clean sweep.
A comprehensive performance helps South Africa register a victory in the third T20I in Colombo 👏
