Charith Asalanka's career-best 77 went in vain as South Africa rode on Tabraiz Shamsi's five for 49, the best by a South African bowler in Sri Lanka and the fifth fifer by a South African spinner in an ODI, and Janneman Malan's century to subjugate Sri Lanka in the 2nd ODI at Colombo. Rain interrupted Sri Lanka's chase after 25 overs, with the hosts reeling at 114 for 4. The break saw the target revised to 265 from 41 overs, which proved too steep a climb as Asalanka waged a lone war.
