Last Wicket: Faf du Plessis 8(9)

Over 21.0  

And as expected, we will have no further play at RPS. Sri Lanka win by 17 runs (D/L Method) to lead the 5-match series 2-0.
Covers have been asked to come on and I suspect that will be the end of the match. More so with the rain intensifying as the players walk off the field. South Africa are way behind the D/L par total which is 126 in 21 overs.
