Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has congratulated the Proteas on winning the T20 International series against Sri Lanka with a match to spare.

The Proteas took a 2-0 lead in the three-match series when they beat the visitors by 16 runs at SuperSport Park on Friday evening.

The Proteas can now attempt to complete a clean sweep in the final match at the Wanderers Stadium on Sunday afternoon (14:30 start).

"Congratulations to captain Faf du Plessis, stand-in captain JP Duminy, head coach Ottis Gibson and all the players and support staff who have now won all their white-ball series, both home and away, during the course of the 2018/19 season," commented CSA Chief Executive Thabang Moroe.

"Although these latest games have been in the shortest format these successes have been largely achieved by the players who will be representing us at the ICC Men's World Cup later this year and our players have shown a very impressive winning culture.

"It is also highly encouraging to see the way players who have made their debut in the T20 format have established themselves at international level and this helps create a bigger pool of potential Proteas for our national selectors.

"You only have to look at the progress made this season by the likes of Rassie van der Dussen and Lutho Sipamla to see the new talent emerging. And we have had two new caps in the format in the latest series in Aiden Markram and Sinethemba Qeshile.

"I would also like to thank our fans who have come out in large numbers to support the Proteas throughout the season," concluded Moroe.
