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.
