A clean sweep is on for Sri Lanka as they head into the final T20I against South Africa. The visitors haven’t lived up to the expectations in white-ball cricket on this tour. Game after game, they have been bringing out poor performances which is quite disappointing.

Playing the last game of this tour, they will be hoping to pull off a consolidation victory. Isuru Udana played a great knock in the 2nd T20I and got the team extremely close to a win. However, he lacked support from the other end and thus failed in his efforts. Sri Lanka, though, will hope to draw some inspiration from his batting and put up a better show.

Match Details:

The third and final game of the 3-match T20I series between South Africa and Sri Lanka will be hosted by the New Wanderers in Johannesburg.

The match starts at 6:00 PM local time (4:00 PM GMT) (9:30 PM IST). The game will be live on Sony SIX and Sony SIX HD in India. (Live streaming in Sony LIV)
