Live updates:

South Africa wins the toss and elected to field first

Sri Lanka has made it a habit of committing the same kinds of mistakes throughout this series; especially the way in which the island batsmen are getting out. The young names in the Sri Lankan lineup are getting a good start, but they are continuously failing to build the innings.

In the previous game, all the four top-order Sri Lankan batsmen got a good start, but they literally failed up to continue the momentum which made Sri Lanka fall short of 121 runs while chasing a big total.
