Match Details

South Africa vs Sri Lanka, 3rd T20I 
March 24, 2019  
Wanderers Stadium - Johannesburg, South Africa 

Preview 

South Africa whitewashed Sri Lanka in the ODI series and are well on course to register a 3-0 win against the team in the T20Is as well after beating the visitors in the first two games. Though the first T20I ended with South Africa winning in the super over, they were at their convincing best in the second game, riding over the scare that Isuru Udana provided them in the latter stages of the match. 

The hosts have now won 7 of their last 8 T20I matches and will be eager to end their international season with a 3-0 drubbing. Though South Africa are without their premier players - Faf du Plessis, Quinton de Kock, Imran Tahir and Rabada have all flown to India for the IPL - they have enough firepower in their team to cross the rope once again.

Batsman: Rassie van der Dussen (9 credits) 
Rassie van der Dussen scored 34 in the first T20I and followed it up with a crucial knock
