South African cricket fans have much to rejoice, as their star player AB de Villiers is making a comeback to International cricket after seven months of hiatus. The legendary batsman will pad up again in the third and final T20 which will be played on January 25, 2017, at Capetown. The return of de Villiers has raised the morale of the team to a great extent.

Final scores: Srilanka wins by 5 wickets

Sri Lanka 170/5 in 19.5 overs.

South Africa 169 in 20 overs. AB de Villiers 63.

South Africa scored 169 after winning the toss and batting first

The batting department of South Africa is continuously struggling to face slow bowlers, and the inclusion of de Villiers in the playing eleven is expected to solve this problem as he is quite satisfied with playing against the spinners.

When it comes to the bowling department, the Proteas is a well-settled side, as Wayne Parnell, Imran Tahir and Aaron Phangiso have performed well throughout this series. But it is Lungisani Ngidi, the young fast bowler who captured a million hearts in this series.

With some excellent match winning performance, the pacer has paved his way to the upcoming ODI squad. The young cricketer will be aiming to use this final T20 as a platform to showcase his mettle.

In the previous match, debutant Chinaman Lakshan Sandakan picked four wickets for Sri Lanka.

The young man with his unexpected turns has troubled the South African batsmen a lot, and he will be the trump card for the Islanders in this game. The absence of skipper Angelo Mathews will destabilize the Sri Lankan batting for sure, as he has scored 54 in the previous match.
