Sri Lanka vs South Africa 4th ODI

With three straight wins, Proteas have already named the five-match ODI series. Although the series has turned into a dead rubber, the last two remaining ODIs give hosts an opportunity to lessen the impact and salvage pride. Moreover, South Africa will be playing without their regular skipper Faf du Plessis and a stand-in captain will lead Proteas in the remaining games.

Faf du Plessis has been ruled out of the series following a shoulder injury which occurred while taking a catch in the third ODI. Management has not named any replacements as such and is not even bothering. The 4th ODI will be played tomorrow at Pallekele with the last one scheduled at Colombo.

Chasing 364 runs target set by Proteas, Sri Lanka were 124 for 5 at a time when Dhananjaya de Silva walked in. Silva (66-ball 84) was the top scorer for the hosts but couldn’t help in avoiding 78 runs defeat in the last ODI and team collapsed at 285-10 in 45.2 overs. Reeza Hendricks was named the man of the match for his brilliant century.

While in the last two games South Africa might look to stretch their winning streaks, hosts would be looking to prove their mettle and salvage pride with a win.

All-rounder –Willem Mulder, JP Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo

Bowlers – Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidid, Kagiso Rabada

SL vs SA key players to watch out for:

With the veterans returning in-form, South Africa would be relaxed for the remaining two games. Hashim Amla (59 of 59) looked in good touch along with debutant Reeza Hendricks (102 of 89) and JP Duminy (92 of 70). David Miller would have also returned to the momentum after striking a fifty in the last game. The opening pair of de Kock and Amla will be most crucial for providing a start.

In bowling, L Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, and Tabraiz Shamsi are the key. Ngidi has 8 wickets in his bag.

The hosts would be relieved with Thisara Perera founding his edge. The all-rounder took 4 wickets in the last game. His all-around performance with both bat and ball can help Sri Lanka turn the results. Kusal Perera, Niroshan Dickwella, and Dhananjaya de Silva will be the other contributors with the bat.

In bowling, Akila Dhananjaya and Lahiru Kumara will be the key. They need to put some extra effort.
