Hosts Sri Lanka hammer South Africa by 178 runs in final ODI

Hosts Sri Lanka hammered South Africa by 178 runs in the final one-day international on sunday. The result at Colombo’s R. Premadasa stadium, however, did not stop South Africa taking the series 3-2.
Sri Lanka made 299 for eight off their 50 overs, with captain Angelo Mathews hitting 97 off 97 balls. Chasing the target, the tourists were all out for 121, two balls short of 25 overs.

For the hosts, Akila Dananjaya, took six wickets for 29 runs and became one of just four spin bowlers with two six-wicket hauls in One-Day internationals.
After South Africa lost both Test matches in Sri Lanka, de Kock said it was a relief to win the one-day series.

South Africa’s tour ends with a T20 game against the Sri Lankans at the same Colombo stadium on Tuesday.
