Miller was earlier ruled out of the rest of the five-match ODI series due to a finger injury. The 27-year-old sustained a cut to his little finger of the right hand while fielding during South Africa's huge 121-run win over Lanka in the second ODI in Durban. Reflecting on Behardien s selection, de Villiers said that the former was included in the squad based on his versatility as he could contribute with both bat and ball. <strong><a href="mailto:https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/sri-lanka-in-south-africa-2016-17-200333/live-scores/south-africa-vs-sri-lanka-3rd-odi-match-180037-summary.html" target="_blank">Full Cricket Scorecard: South Africa vs Sri Lanka 3rd ODI at Johannesburg</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p> He is one of the guys you want in your team when the chips are down and when you're going well. He can play any role and is versatile. He can bowl a few overs and is great in the field. He's a good guy and it's nice to have him in the side. He is a really good replacement for Dave (Miller) and there's no better that's for sure, de Villiers added. <p></p> <p></p>South Africa are currently leading 2-0 in the ongoing ODI series. After whitewashing the tourists in the three-Test series, Sri Lanka bounced back by winning the three T20Is but have again lost plot in the ODIs. They were outdone in the series opener by 8 wickets and succumbed in the next game as well. They will have to rebuild and find some way to stop Proteas who will be looking to give an all-round performance for Test skipper, Faf du Plessis. He will be featuring in his 100th ODI when he takes on the field on Saturday.
