An unbroken 121-run opening stand! Reeza Hendricks (59 off 46) and Quinton de Kock (56 off 42) produced a seemingly flawless opening stand as South Africa chased down Sri Lanka's 120/8 in the third and final T20 International match at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on Tuesday. The Proteas reached the target in 14.4 overs to spare, and completed back-to-back T20 series sweeps against Sri Lanka. Earlier, Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka won the toss and opted to bat first. But none of the batsmen, except Kusal Perera (39 off 33) managed to play a good knock. Shanaka tried to dig in but could manage only 18 off 26 balls. Chamika Karunaratne, however, hit 29 off 19 including a last-ball six to Sri Lanka a fighting total. Sri Lanka won the preceding three-match ODI series 2-1. This was the last match for both teams before the ICC T20 World Cup. Catch highlights of SL vs SA, 3rd T20 match here:
