Faf du Plessis says no 'mercy' for Lanka in third T20 following facile 2-0 series win

Johannesburg, Aug 5 (ANI): Captain Faf du Plessis said that his side South Africa will be showing no mercy to Sri Lanka, as the hosts did the same in the ODI series, while the team defeated Sri Lanka by 22 runs in the second Twenty20 international in wind-swept Hambantota on Sunday to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

According to Sport24, JP Duminy scored 30 off 23 balls and David Miller hit an aggressive 21-ball 36 as the Proteas reached 145-6 after electing to take first strike in the day-night match.

Fast bowlers Lonwabo Tsotsobe and Morne Morkel then claimed two wickets each as Sri Lanka, the world's top-ranked Twenty20 side, were restricted to 123-7 by an impressive South African fielding display, the report said. (ANI)
