SL vs SA Dream11 Team | South Africa vs Sri Lanka 5th ODI Match Preview & Prediction | Fantasy Team & Team News

South Africa are one win away from completing a whitewash of Sri Lanka in the ODI series. The Proteas have won 4 consecutive matches to have a 4-0 lead in the 5 match series. Their rivals, Srilanka, have looked abysmal across the series and there is not much hope for them in the last match as well.

The Preview

The Proteas looked clueless in the test series as they lost it the first time to Sri Lanka on their home turf. As a result, South Africa made immediate changes to recover from the humiliation and it worked. The home team has absolutely battered the Asians in the ODI series without giving them an inch to recover. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, have fizzled out after a very impressive outing in the test series.

Sri Lanka will be disappointed to lose the ODI series in such a fashion, especially with the World Cup lurking just around the corner. The series has exposed them in the One Day Cricket format and it could hamper their confidence going into the biggest competition in world cricket.

South Africa would be keen to win the 5th match as well and finish on a high. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will give everything to get that one consolation win and start building from there. The home team are expected to give chance to the newly arrived players like JP Duminy and Markam again to give them the chance to assert themselves before the world cup.
