Sri Lanka beat South Africa by three runs in a tense rain-hit clash to end their losing streak in the one-day series in the fourth game in Pallekele.

Dasun Shanaka hit a quickfire 65 as Sri Lanka blasted 306-7 off 39 overs. With a prolonged rain stoppage, South Africa were set a target of 191 from 21 overs.

After Hashim Amla made 40 and Jean-Paul Duminy 38, the tourists lost key wickets and went into the final over needing eight runs. But David Miller was bowled with Suranga Lakmal's first ball and tail enders Junior Dala and Lungi Ngidi were then unable to hit the ball. South Africa finished on 187-9. (AFP)

    Good to see them win, but in reality they are very lucky to win with the amount of mistakes they did on the field. Now people will forget everything start praising the team. Then the team go over the moon and start loosing again. Something dramatic has to happen to put the team back on track. You might even see the whole cabinet of ministers for the next match.

    The mountain has laboured and brought forth a wee little mouse. Now the team, management and Board officials will be bragging that we can beat England in the next series and win the world cup too!
