Sri Lanka and South Africa at The Oval

South Africa beat Sri Lanka by 96 runs in the third match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 at the Kennington Oval in London on Saturday.

Hashim Amla’s superb century, Faf du Plessis’s half century leads South Africa to a comfortable 96 runs victory against Sri Lanka.

After winning the toss and opted to field first, Sri Lanka did well to restrict the South Africa to 299.

Chasing a challenging total of 300, Sri Lanka openers Niroshan Dickwella (41) and Upul Tharanga (57) off to the flying start, followed by a collapse in middle overs, was a major cause of Sri Lanka’s 96 runs defeat to South Africa.
