South African pacer Lungi Ngidi out of IPL with side strain

Third ball of the 17th over - Van der Dussen goes for an ugly hoick, gets a leading edge against Lasith Malinga only to be caught at third man for 34.

For the veteran South Africa spinner Imran Tahir, these are times to enjoy cricket to the hilt.

The two highest run scorer for South Africa in the match Miller and van der Dussen came out to tackle the only over and captain Malinga himself made a decision to bowl the over.

The Proteas have won their last three T20 series' but their last defeat came against their opponents here when Sri Lanka won a single-match series in 2018 whilst they are unbeaten in their last two on home soil.

Van der Dussen hit a six and a four in the next over and South Africa needed just 18 runs from 24 balls after that. KG Rabada, Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock will all leave the squad after the first game too.

As South Africa sneaked through for that tying run, Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Dickwella missed a straightforward throw at the stumps that would have given Sri Lanka an improbable victory.

Federal Reserve signals no interest rate hikes in 2019
After a two-day meeting, monetary policymakers voted unanimously to keep the United States interest rate range between 2.25%-2.5%. Fed policymakers expect growth will be just 2.1 percent this year, down from 2.3 percent in their previous forecast.

After their awful performances in the ODI series, head coach Chandika Hathurusingha has been summoned to return to Sri Lanka to explain the team's poor form with fielding coach Steve Rixon taking over as acting head coach.

Earlier, South Africa's decision to bowl first was vindicated immediately with Steyn getting rid of Dickwella (0) second ball of the day.

Chasing the 15 runs in the super over, Thisara Perera and Avishka Fernando came to bat and Imran Tahir took the ball to defend 15 runs.

The run-scoring stalled once the field spread with Sri Lanka accumulating just 23 runs between overs six to ten. It was Imran Tahir who was given the ball then and he did well to concede just four in four balls.

"You don't want the team to be in those positions, you always to want to beat a team by 10 wickets or whatever but being in that position, I think, was very good".

For the hosts, Phehlukwayo was the most successful bowler returning 3/25 in his four overs while every other South African bowler chipped in a wicket each.
