AP South African bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe celebrates the dismissal of Sri Lanka's Upul Tharanga, foreground, as non striker Mahela Jayawardene watches during the third one-day international cricket match between Sri Lanka and South Africa in Pallekele, Sri Lanka.

David Miller hit a career best 85 not out and fast bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe picked up four wickets Friday as South Africa beat Sri Lanka by 56 runs in the third one—day international to trail 2—1 in the five—match series.

Miller hit five sixes and four boundaries during his 72—ball innings at No. 7, sharing an unbroken 69—run stand with Ryan McLaren for the eighth wicket after the visitors had slumped to 154—7. That helped South Africa reach a 223—7.

Thisara Perera smashed 65 off 49 deliveries to lift Sri Lanka’s hopes but his dismissal sealed the match. Tsotsobe finished with 4—22 as the hosts were dismissed for 167 in the 43rd over.

Sri Lanka won the first two games in Colombo.
