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.
