Sri Lanka Emerging win Tri-Series title in South Africa

An outstanding four-wicket haul by Lahiru Madushanka played a pivotal role as Sri Lanka Emerging won the One-Day Triangular Series by comfortably beating University Sports South Africa (USSA) by eight wickets in the final in Pretoria on Sunday.

The medium-pacer took four for 35 in 10 superb overs to restrict the hosts to 180 for seven, before Pathum Nissanka’s unbeaten 84 (108 balls, 7 fours, 2 sixes) guided the tourists to victory with more than 12 overs to spare.

It was a clinical display by the Asian side, who have been the stand-out side in the competition and they again showed their strength at the LC De Villiers Oval.
