After losing the first One-Day International (ODI) match by a huge margin, Sri Lankacame back strong to beat South Africa by 87 runs in the second match Pallekele on Wednesday. With the series levelled at 1-1, Sri Lanka will be aiming to keep up the winning momentum and seal the series in the final ODI match against an inconsistent South Africa at Hambantota on Saturday.

For South Africa, Hashim Amla has been on top form with back-to-back centuries. He scored 109 in 1st ODI and 101 in the 2nd ODI. AB de Villiers scored 75 in the first match but couldn’t transform his 29 into a big number in the second match. Apart from the duo, almost the whole batting order failed miserably at Pallekele.

Experienced cricketer Jacques Kallis has been unable to put up a big score yet. His last century came in 2010 against India in Ahmedabad. Since then, Kallis has scored 11 half-centuries but has been unable to convert them into a hundred. His presence in the team comes under serious question, as to whether he has crossed his prime and should be asked to step back and let the young guns takeover, with ICC World Cup 2015 in mind. The third ODI against Sri Lanka will prove to be very crucial for the South African senior batsman.
