1
Thisara Perera to David Miller. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Fernando. South Africa have cruised to a six wicket victory in Port Elizabeth putting them on the brink of a whitewash against Sri Lanka in the five match ODI series. Quinton de Kock continued his spectacular form with yet another fluent half century at the top of the order, meaning the rest of the middle order could play without pressure as they eased to the target with more than 17 overs to spare. The tourists never looked like getting on top in this match, losing wickets in clusters earlier this morning at St George's Park as Anrich Nortje claimed 57-3. Only Isuru Udana offered any real resistance, spanking an outrageous 78 from just 57 deliveries to delay the inevitable loss. The final match of the series will be played in Cape Town on Saturday, before attention turns to the shortest format.
