Spin trio lead SL to win in one-off T20

Sri Lanka beat South Africa by three wickets in the one-off Twenty 20 international at Colombo on Tuesday, after restricting the tourists to their lowest total in the shortest format of the game. After electing to bat first, South Africa was bowled out for 98 in the 17th over, with spin trio Lakshan Sandakan, Dhananjaya combining to take seven wickets. Quinton de Kock scored three boundaries in the first over but, for the second time in space of two days, his opening partner Hashim Amla departed for a duck. De Kock was run out with 30 on the 11th over of the innings. The visitors finished two runs short of their Pakistan in 2013. Proteas fast bowler Kagiso Rabada responded by removing openers Kusal Perera and Kusal Mendis in the first over before Dinesh Chandimal, who was returning from a six-match suspension, steadied the innings alongside De Silva.
