South Africa`s victory in the second ODI match has levelled the series and have set up a perfect decider in the final ODI between these teams. Both teams are yet to win an ODI series in this year and are in a rebuilding phase with a lot of new faces in the playing XI. A series win will be a big boost for them going ahead in this tour. South Africa made a brilliant comeback in the last game and will look to continue the momentum in this game too while Sri Lanka will look to make a comeback with a win.

Sri Lanka Preview

Sri Lanka`s top order were blown away for 19/3in the first 5 overs before middle order steadied the ship with some useful partnerships. Charith Asalanka top scored with 77 runs with Dasun Shanaka (30 runs) and Charika Karunaratne (36 runs) playing good cameos. But they never really threatened the chase as they ended with just 197- all out losing by 67 runs (DLS method).

Chamika Karunratne (2 wickets) and Dananjaya De Silva (1 wicket) claimed 3 wickets between them and gave runs at less than 5 RPO while the other bowlers went for runs at nearly 6 RPO as the opposition piled up runs. Hasaranga and Chameera picked up crucial wickets in the last game but were expensive with the ball.

Top players to bet on:

Charith Asalanka – Asalanka has scores of 77 & 72 in the two matches at a strike rate of 110+. He is looking in sublime form and will be looking to score his maiden century in this match.

Chamika Karunaratne – Karunaratne has bowling figures of 8-0-42-3 across 2 matches and will be eager to bowl more overs in this match. He can be dangerous with the bat and scored 36 runs off 23 balls in the last game.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI:

Avishka Fernando, Minod Bhanuka (wk), Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera/Lahiru Kumara, Akila Dananjaya, Praveen Jayawickrama

South Africa Preview

South Africa posted a massive 283 runs in the 47 overs and scored 280+ runs for the second consecutive time. Janneman Malan scored 121 runs and lead their batting unit with Reeza Hendricks (51 runs) and Heinrich Klassen (43 runs) making 96 & 86 run partnerships with Malan. Van Der Dussen and Aiden markram scored runs in the first match. 

Tabraiz Shamsi was the star of the night with the ball as he picked up 5 wickets after Kagiso Rabada claiming 2 quick wickets in the powerplay. Wiann Mulder, George Linde, and Keshav Maharaj picked up 1 wicket each in the match.

Top players to bet on:

Janneman Malan – Malan is having a great time in the ODI circuit with 3 centuries and 2 fifties in just 9 matches. He has scores of 121 & 23 in the 2 matches so far and we expect him to make a yet another big score in this match.

Tabraiz Shamsi – Shamsi had bowling figures of 7.4-0-49-5 in the last game and helped them to bowl out the opposition for 197 runs. He is a wicket-taking bowler who won’t worry about leaking a few runs in his overs.

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Wiaan Mulder, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Andile Phehlukwayo, Keshav Maharaj (c), George Linde, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi

Weather Conditions

Colombo weather was cloudy and dark for this match but we expect rain won’t play a spoilsport to completely abandon the game. Some overs might be lost like the previous game.

Venue Details

Colombo pitch has been good to bat with teams scoring 280-300 runs consistently so far. But we expect the overcast conditions, and moisture in the track can cause some abrasiveness and bring the spinners into play big time.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first ah won both the matches played so far after choosing to bat first. The pitch becomes slightly slower in the second innings bring the spinner into play big time.

South African openers have made big scores with their middle order trio of Reeza Hendricks, Van Der Dussen, and Klasen among the runs. Sri Lanka batters have been inconsistent with Avishka Fernando and Charith Asalanka scoring most of the runs. Kagiso Rabada alongsid spin duo of Shamsi and Maharaj are looking in great rhythm for South Africa while Sri Lanka rely on their spinners Hasanranga, Danajaya d silva, and Akila Dananjaya to take wickets. We expect South Africa to win this match owing to their batting firepower and depth in the playing XI.

South Africa will win the match & series 2-1
