KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for SL vs. SA Today Match Prediction, 3rd T20I, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.

South Africa

South Africa has already won the T20I series and is now hunting for a clean sweep in T20Is. South Africa lost the ODI series but they have made a scintillating comeback in T20Is and it couldn’t have been done without their bowlers who have been instrumental throughout. The duo of Maharaj and Shamsi has been instrumental in middle overs and has not given an inch to Lankan batters and they have fallen in their trap so far.

They are in strong recent form and going into the World Cup, they will be tough to beat. Quinton de Kock again made a big impact in the 2nd Match and scored a good fifty on a tricky track. Africans have their all bases covered and it will be a huge boost for their young side to sweep a subcontinent side in their own conditions.

Top Batsmen from T20I series 

  • Quinton de Kock- 95 runs at 117.50 strike rate 
  • Aiden Markram– 69 runs at a 132.69 strike rate 
  • Reeza Hendricks- 56 runs at 114.28 strike rate 

Top Bowler from T20I series 

  • Fortuin- 3 wickets 4.50 economy 
  • Maharaj– 2 wickets at 4.70 economy 
  • Shamsi- 4 wicket at 6.66 economy 

Sri Lanka

Srilanka was super confident coming into the T20I series after the T20I win against India and the ODI series win against South Africa but Srilanka has already lost this series and now will be playing for pride. Lankans had a strong spin bowling attack and they were counting on them to neutralize South Africa.

But they themselves got trapped against South African spinners. The duo of Shamsi and Maharaj left Srilanka’s batsman ashamed in the middle overs. Srilanka will play for pride now and need to be at their best to beat a strong star-studded South African lineup.

Top Batsmen of Srilanka from T20I series

  • Dinesh Chandimal- 71 runs at 114.51 strike rate
  • Kusal Perera– 30 runs at 120.00 strike rate
  • Dasun Shanaka- 30 runs at 118.18 strike rate

Top Bowler of Sri Lanka from T20I series 

  • Wanindu Hasaranga- 3 wickets at 5.61 economy 
  • Dasun Shanaka- 1  wickets at 6.00 economy 
  • Dushmantha Chameera- 1 wicket at 8.00 economy

Pitch Report

Srilanka was bundled out for 103 runs and there was a hint of turn from ball one. Pitches are very slow now but still, it is not a bad place to bat on. In the first match, South Africa scored 163 runs in the 1st match which shows if we players apply themselves then they could score runs.

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 has lost the T20I series and they need to win this match to escape humiliation. They still have one of the strongest spin bowling attacks and can still tumble South Africa in the last match.

They still haven’t played up to their potential and need to be on their toes if they want to win the last match. On the other hand, South Africa has clinched the series and is likely to rest a few key players which can give Srilanka the best chance to win the last match. We expect Srilanka to win the match against South Africa.

Top Batsman from Srilanka– Dinesh Chandimal (3.20 odds)

Dinesh Chandimal has rocked his way back into the T20 side after consistent domestic performances. He scored a fighting 66 runs in his comeback and can be the missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle of Srilanka’s batting lineup. Chandimal is a cool and calm customer and a delight to watch when he is in full form. He can score big runs if he settles down and has been in good recent form. Dinesh can give you good returns and is our pick for the best batsman from Srilanka.

Top Batsman from South Africa – Aiden Markram (3.25 odds)

Aiden Markram has revamped himself even since started to play in middle-order for South Africa. Markram always used to struggle against spinners but he has developed his game and is now a very confident player of spin. He scored 48 runs in the first match and was adjudged man of the match for his brilliance. Markram is a complete player and has been scoring dozens of runs recently. He can give you good returns and Markram is our pick for best batsman from South Africa.

Top Bowler from South Africa– Keshav Maharaj (4.25 odds)

Keshav Maharaj made his debut in this series but has been playing for a long time in the South African jersey. He is leading this side and has been brilliant with the bowl so far. Although he has only picked 2 wickets, his economy is really impressive. His economy is just 4.70 and his accuracy is just a treat to watch. Surely he is using his test match bowling to perfection in these slowish pitches. He is holding one end which has given other bowlers a great opportunity to clinch wickets. He can give you good returns and he is our pick for best bowler from South Africa.

Top Bowler from Sri Lanka – Dushmantha Chameera (3.60 odds)

Dushmantha Chameera has a serious raw pace and recently great success in the international arena. He is good in the powerplay and a genuine wicket-taking threat. Chameera has only picked one wicket in the series and will be raring to leave his mark on this series and in the ODI series also he was really impressive and was a man of the match in the last ODI. Chameera can destroy South Africa’s lineup and is the best candidate to give you big returns. He is our pick for best bowler from Srilanka.
