South Africa

South Africa lost the ODI series, and this series will be crucial for their preparation for the World T20. Srilanka have the momentum coming into this series but recently South Africa have been in terrific form. They defeated World Champions West Indies at their home recently and against Ireland also, they were very lethal.

Especially with the return of Quinton de Kock inside, they will be confident going against Srilankan spinners now. Quinton de Kock slotted straight into eleven and strengthened their batting lineup. Whereas Nortje is also likely to get a nod in this match after missing the last two ODI matches. 

Top Batsmen from ODI series 

  • Malan– 162 runs at 87.56 strike rate 
  • Aiden Markram– 119 runs at a 96.74 strike rate 
  • Klaasen- 101 runs at 114.77 strike rate 

Top Bowler from ODI series 

  • Rabada- 4 wickets 5.56 economy 
  • Maharaj– 6 wickets at 3.57 economy 
  • Shamsi- 8 wicket at 4.87 economy 

Srilanka

Srilanka has been fantastic under Shanaka’s leadership and has been putting in some extraordinary performances recently. Kusal Perera is also likely to return to playing eleven after recovering from Covid 19 and his inclusion can be a defining factor between both sides. 

There is no doubt on the quality of Srilankan spinners who are again the biggest threat to African batsmen who have been struggling on this tour. They defeated India recently, so surely they know how to defeat big teams. This series is really crucial for Srilanka going into the World Cup as they have to play qualifiers and this series will be perfect for their preparation.

  • Asalanka- 196 runs at 97.02 strike rate
  • Dhananjaya de Silva– 87 runs at 66.92 strike rate
  • Avishka Fernando- 136 runs at 91.89 strike rate

Top Bowler of Sri Lanka from ODI series 

  • Wanindu Hasaranga- 4 wickets at 5.25 economy

SL vs SA– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Srilanka expected to win the match against South Africa

KhelTalk experts feel that Srilanka will win against South Africa. Srilanka won the ODI series and is again a favorite for this series. Srilanka have been different under Shanka and showed a lot of fight and determination. They have a solid batting order with some exceptional spinners in their armory. Wanindu Hasaranga will be in the limelight. On the other hand, South Africa also has been in really strong form in the T20 format but might be underdogs for this series. They struggled against spinners and will be their biggest threat. We expect Srilanka to win against South Africa.

Top Batsman from Srilanka– Kusal Perera (3.20 odds)

Kusal Perera is likely to come back into the side and will be Srilanka’s trump card in the T20 series. Kusal Perera is an explosive opener and has been out of the team lately and is raring to go after so much controversy in the last month in Srilankan cricket. He can take away a match if starts going and will be hard to stop. He is our pick for best batsman from Srilanka.

Top Batsman from South Africa – Quinton de Kock (3.25 odds)

Quinton de Kock is coming back in this series after resting for the ODI series. He is the leader of this team and sets the tone at the top of the order. His presence will be a big boost for South Africa’s batting lineup who struggled against spinners in the ODI series. He is a consistent performer and has been in terrific form recently. Quinton de Kock is a mandatory pick and can give you good returns. He is our pick for best batsman from South Africa.

Top Bowler from South Africa– Tabraiz Shamsi (4.25 odds)

Tabraiz Shamsi is the number one ranked T20I bowler of the world. Shamsi has enjoyed terrific success in recent months and will look to continue his form in this series as well. The left-arm china man has revamped his bowling style and been very brave with his line and length.

He is a genuine wicket-taker and was phenomenal in the ODI series. He took 8 wickets in ODIs and troubled Srilankan batters. He can give you good returns. Shamsi is our pick for best bowler from South Africa.

Top Bowler from Srilanka – Wanindu Hasaranga (3.60 odds)

Wanindu Hasaranga had an average ODI series and was not happy with his performances in that series. Hasaranga has been tremendous for Srilanka lately and has been their biggest match-winner and game-changer. He was a man of the series last time against India and has the ability to repeat his heroics in this series as well. His variations are really rough to pick and can create some serious problems for South Africa. He is our pick for best bowler from Srilanka.
