APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Imran Tahir to Isuru Udana. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught. In fairly bizarre circumstances we have a review. Tahir is so desperate for wickets, he is willing this to be out but umpire Kettleborough rarely gets decisions wrong. No inside edge and missing leg stump, Udana survives but the result is still the same.South Africa have sealed victory in their ODI series against Sri Lanka by going 3-0 up thanks to a pretty sedate finish in front of an empty stadium at Kingsmead. The tourists were struggling in their run chase before the Durban rain intervened and all but ended their hopes, as by the time more play was possible the equation was reduced to 118 runs needed from eight overs. The Proteas were put in a dominant position earlier in the day by a majestic Quinton de Kock century, his supreme form continues in the build up to the World Cup. We'll be back on Wednesday for the Fourth ODI in Port Elizabeth.

OUT! Caught. Imran Tahir to Thisara Perera. Googly half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by van der Dussen. Thisara Perera is capable off some ridiculous things with the bat but he can't pull off a miracle tonight. Tahir fired this googly across the left-hander so he could only slice it into the deep. Van der Dussen used the damp outfield to his advantage, sliding expertly to complete the catch low down.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Imran Tahir to Kusal Mendis. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Tahir. Tahir bags himself a wicket and has a huge smile on his face. He knew Mendis was going to charge down the pitch so slowed this delivery up beautifully. Mendis ended up through the shot too early and the bowler settled underneath it himself. South Africa closing in on victory.
