The third and final T20I of the series between South Africa and Sri Lanka was built around the return of AB de Villiers. And he didn’t disappoint as he scored a magnificent fifty to take the Proteas to 169. Sri Lanka in their chase, started off well with Dickwella and Tharanga. But it was all-rounder Seekkuge Prasanna’s innings of 37 in 16 deliveries that swung the game in Sri Lanka’s favour.
But, the moment of the game was when Asela Gunaratne uprooted the stumps after edging one for four in the final over. Sri Lanka still needed a run off two deliveries to win the game, but Gunaratne believed that the job had been completed. In the end, he managed to get a run off the next ball to seal the game and the series for his side. But, it was a hilarious incident which had everyone in splits.
Watch how Sri Lanka and Gunaratne celebrated prematurely:
