Having finally clinched a win in the fourth match of the already decided five-ODI rubber, Sri Lanka will aim to replicate that performance and continue their fightback in the fifth and final match against South Africa to be played at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday.
After falling 0-3 behind in the series, the hosts made a thumping comeback in the fourth game. A strong batting performance was supported by a brilliant effort with the ball as the hosts clinched a three-run victory in the rain-affected game in Kandy.
Wednesday’s win was Sri Lanka’s first in 11 ODIs against the Proteas.
With the series in the bag, the South Africa team management had said they would use the final two games to test their bench. Reeza Hendricks, for instance, came on to strike a hundred on debut in the third ODI and Heinrich Klaasen was brought in for the fourth.
The 5th ODI between Sri Lanka and South Africa will start at 2:30 PM IST. The toss, however, will be held at 2:00 PM IST.
