South African skipper Faf du Plessis won his third toss in as many matches and elected to bat first against Sri Lanka in the third and final T20 match at Hambantota.

South Africa will eye a 3-0 whitewash and go back home with some confidence after having conceded the the One-Day International (ODI) series 4-1. The hosts will hope to end the series with a victory.
