South Africa won the 5th and Final ODI against Sri Lanka played at Centurion yesterday. Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to field first. South Africa scored 384 for loss of 6 wickets in the 50 overs. Sri Lanka only scored 296 runs for the loss of 8 wickets at the end of 50 overs. South Africa have completely outclassed Sri Lanka in every department in this ODI series at home. The Proteas whitewashed Sri Lanka in the five-match series.
This victory has brought South Africa in to the top of the ODI ranking. Their reward for winning an 11th ODI on the trot was the unseating of Australia - whom they had also thrashed 5-0 at home last year - and moving one point clear at the top of the table.
