SL vs SA: South Africa tour of Sri Lanka: Preview
South Africa`s victory in the second ODI match has levelled the series and have set up a perfect decider in the final ODI between these teams. Both teams are yet to win an ODI series in this year and are in a rebuilding phase with a lot of new faces in the playing XI. A series win will be a big boost for them going ahead in this tour.
South Africa posted a massive 283 runs in the 47 overs and scored 280+ runs for the second consecutive time. Sri Lanka`s top order was blown away for 19/3 in the first 5 overs. It was their middle order who steadied the ship with some useful partnerships.

Colombo weather will be cloudy and dark for this match but we expect rain won’t play a spoilsport to completely abandon the game. Some overs might be lost like the previous game.
SL vs SA: 3rd ODI: Pitch Report
Colombo pitch has been good to bat with teams scoring 280-300 runs consistently so far. But we expect the overcast conditions, and moisture in the track can cause some abrasiveness and bring the spinners into play big time.
