South Africa lost the fourth ODI against Sri Lanka by eight wickets, meaning they also lose the series. The South Africans were, once again, dreadfully under par with the bat and even more so with the ball.
Sri Lanka's experience showed them up, and the Proteas will now go back to the drawing board ahead of the final, dead rubber ODI. Sri Lanka won with 36 balls still to spare, despite being made to field first.
Sri Lanka have been the stars of the show all through the series while South Africa have been over reliant on individuals. The team performance as a whole has been very poor.
