Australia went into the match against South Africa high on confidence having outdone hosts with ease in their first game of the series. On the other hand, the Proteas were stunned by West Indies, and had a tough challenge on their hands.
South Africa bounced back after two defeats to win the Third ODI at Pallekele by 56 runs. The Proteas have kept the 5-match series alive with this much needed victory on Friday to reduce the Sri Lankan lead to 2-1.
Titans completed a clinical 59-run victory over Auckland in the Group A Match at Durban. Needing 173 runs to win, Auckland collapsed to 113 all out in 18.1 overs in what was a completely one-sided contest.
