Sri Lanka vs South Africa Predictions


Aiden Markram has shown some strong form on this tour of Sri Lanka. He batted exceptionally well in the 1st T20 so I’m backing him for runs again with South Africa to win.

Head to Head


South Africa have won four of their last five T20 matches against Sri Lanka. In the 1st T20 of this series, the Proteas won by 28 runs.

Sri Lanka Form


Sri Lanka came into the T20I series hoping to replicate their ODI success against South Africa. After being sent into the field first, the home bowlers struggled initially as the visitors got off to a good start.

The Proteas posted 163 runs in their 20 overs, a tough target on that pitch. Dinesh Chandimal showed why he was brought back into the squad, scoring 66 not out in the chase. There was however no other batsman that scored more than 22 runs.

In the end the hosts only managed 135 runs in their 20 overs, losing by 28.

Sri Lanka Injuries & Team News


This is a crucial match for Sri Lanka as they look to build towards the T20 Cricket World Cup. They should not make too many changes, depending on conditions.

South Africa Form


After a disappointing 2-1 series defeat in the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, South Africa bounced back well to start off the T20 series.

Batting first in Colombo, Quinton de Kock scored 36, Reeza Hendricks 38 and man of the match, Aidan Markram 48 runs. The total of 163 was probably slightly above par for what was not the easiest of pitches.

All the bowlers contributed in some form with five of them taking one wicket. Keshav Maharaj was the pick of the lot, conceding just 19 runs in four overs. 

The Proteas restricted Sri Lanka to 135 in their 20 overs, securing a 28-run win. 

South Africa Injuries & Team News


South Africa will probably look to start with the same side. They may want to get the in-form Janneman Malan into it but with the top three all batting well, that could prove tough.

Verdict

South Africa are backed to seal with series with a win while Aidan Markram can continue his fine form by being the visitors top scorer.

Dinesh Chandimal carried his bat in the last T20, he back his 66 runs up with another big score.
