Dananjaya's six wickets hand Sri Lanka 178-run victory
COLOMBO, Aug 12 (Reuters) - Sri Lanka's Akila Dananjaya spun a web around South Africa's batsmen with a six-wicket haul to help the hosts to a commanding 178-run victory in the fifth and final one-day international on Sunday.
South Africa, who had won the first three matches of the series, appeared clueless against off-spinner Dananjaya's bag of tricks and were bundled out for 121 under 25 overs.
