Johannesburg, July 29 (ANI): South Africa crashed to a series defeat in Sri Lanka as the hosts took a decisive 3-1 lead in the one-day series with an eight-wicket victory in Pallekele on Saturday, where Tillakaratne Dilshan and Kumar Sangakkara pulverized the South African bowling attack.

According to Sport24, Dilshan returned unbeaten on 115 and Sangakkara made 91 during a record partnership of 184 runs to steer the hosts past South Africa's 238 all out in the 44th over of the day-night match.
