South Africa notched up a 96-run victory over Sri Lanka in the third ICC Champions Trophy 2017 match at Kennington Oval in London on Saturday. While Hashim Amla notched up his 25th ODI century and Faf Du Plessis chipped in with a solid 70-ball 75 as South Africa posted a challenging 299 for six, Sri Lanka batsmen failed in the chase as they were all out for 203 in 41.3 overs. Upul Tharanga scored a 57 while Niroshan Dickwella (41) and Kusal Perera (44) chipped in Sri Lanka, their efforts weren't enough. Imran Tahir was declared as Man of the Match thanks to his four-wicket haul. He ended with figures of 4/27. Chris Morris helped with two wickets while Morne Morkel and Kagiso Rabada took one each. (SCORECARD)

Earlier, Amla and Du Plessis stitched 145 runs for the second wicket as South Africa looked to be heading for a big total. However, Sri Lanka pulled things back through some good death bowling. South Africa seemed to lose their way after Amla was dismissed and managed to score only 78 runs in the final 10 overs. It was some hard-hitting by JP Duminy that finally gave the Proteas the much-needed impetus at the end of their innings.

On the other hand South Africa, were poor with the new ball conceding 87 runs in the first 10 overs. Tahir who picked four wickets and some brilliance in the field from the skipper AB de Villiers changed the game for the Proteas. They kept chipping away with important wickets which stopped the run flow of the Sri Lankans and 300 proved to be too much for them in the end.

!

So, Sri Lanka after being 90 for 1 in 11 overs have been bundled out for 203 runs. Sri Lanka were well on course to chase down the score when Niroshan Dickwella and Upul Tharanga were batting. Tharanga scored a hard fought fifty but did not get any support from the middle order. The Islanders suffered a mini collapse in between, losing 5 wickets for 60 runs.

Imran Tahir to Nuwan Pradeep

OUT! That should do it! South Africa have a win in their tournament opener and it's come via a dominant performance. Tossed up on the stumps, Nuwan Pradeep lofts this in an attempt to clear the wide long on boundary. Didn't middle it at all as it's straight down the throat of JP Duminy, who takes a simple catch. Tahir gets his fourth of the game and SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 96 RUNS!

Imran Tahir to Nuwan Pradeep

A bit of extra bounce for Imran Tahir. He pitches this on a shorter length and it turns back in, the wrong 'un, takes Pradeep by surprise and raps him on the gloves.

Kagiso Rabada to Kusal Perera

FOUR! Overpitched, in an attempt to score the yorker and it's been put away. Kusal Perera backs away and drills it past mid off to end the over with a boundary.

Kagiso Rabada to Kusal Perera

Rabada comes steaming in and pounds it in short, Perera makes room to get some bat on it but fails to do so.

Similar shot, it's aerially through the covers. Just a single this time though.

Kagiso Rabada to Nuwan Pradeep

FOUR! Don't think he really meant to hit it there but he'll take it all the same. Rabada hurls it full and outside off, Pradeep awkwardly just chips it over the covers. It races away to the fence, beating the chasing fielders.
