South Africa Tour of Sri Lanka, 2018
Sri Lanka vs South Africa Dream11 Predictions
After facing a chastening defeat at the hands of South Africa in the first ODI, hosts Sri Lanka will look to bounce back when they take on the Proteas in the 2nd limited-overs international on Wednesday.
Venue:- Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium, Dambulla
Match Timing:- Wednesday, August 01, 2018, 02:30 PM IST
Sri Lanka was undone by the pace and seam of the opening duo of Kagiso Rabada (4-41) and Lungi Ngidi (1-29) as they were reduced to a paltry 5-36 in the first ten overs. Kusal Perera (81) and all-rounder Thisara Perera (49) took the Islanders to a respectable yet underwhelming score of 193 in 34.3 overs. Tabraiz Shamsi (4-33) was the wrecker-in-chief during the latter stages of the innings.
Chasing 196, Dhananjaya accounted for Amla (19) and Markram (0) cheaply but de Kock (47), Faf du Plessis (47) and JP Duminy scored a 32-ball-53 to lead the Proteas to a comfortable five-wicket win in a mere 31 overs.
