SL vs SA Dream11 Match Predictions
South Africa Tour of Sri Lanka 2018
Sri Lanka vs South Africa Only T20I
After a massive 178 runs win in the dead rubber, Sri Lanka managed a respectable series scoreline of 2-3 in ODIs and will now host Proteas for the final battle in the only T20I clash in Colombo on Tuesday evening.
After Sri Lanka’s 2-0 domination in the test series, South Africa registered 3 consecutive wins in the ODI series and secured an unassailable 3-0 lead. However, with Sri Lanka attaining the momentum later in the last two games, the so far tour looks quite balanced with both the teams having an equal opportunity to end the tour with a win.
The 178-runs defeat in the last ODI cost South Africa its ODI ranking and now they are sitting in fourth place in MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankings. Similar to test series, it also exposed their submission to spin. Six Proteas batsmen failed to read Akila Dhananjaya’s spin variation and lost their wicket to the unorthodox spinner.
The ODI Player of the Series, JP Duminy, will lead the side in T20I and would be looking to seal a win to end Sri Lanka’s tour on high.

SL vs SA key players to watch out for:
Right-arm off break Akila Dhananjaya will be crucial with the ball. His 6/29 in the last ODI gifted Sri Lanka a massive win and will be a key the T20I also. Skipper Angelo Matthews scored run-a-ball 97 and will be responsible for batting in deep and taking the score further.
For visitors, after Faf du Plessis’ departure, all the eyes will be on JP Duminy. South Africa will heavily rely upon him after he was picked the most valuable player of the ODI series. He is in fine form and with the added responsibility he can prove to be dangerous.
