SL vs SA Dream11 Team | Sri Lanka vs South Africa IT20 Match Preview & Prediction | Fantasy Team & Team News
Two different formats, two clean sweeps. This has been the story of Sri Lanka’s tour of South Africa so far. The visitors stunned the hosts in the test series by winning both the tests and thus, the series. It was the first test series win of Sri Lanka in South Africa in their entire history. However, their joy didn’t last long as the Proteas came back with a bang in the ODI series and won it 5-0. The two teams will go at it in the 3-match T20 series now.
South Africa have all the momentum
The hosts had to face the humiliation of an unexpected test series defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka. However, their reaction to that has been phenomenal and they have really fired on all cylinders. Over the 5-match long One Day International Series, there wasn’t a single false note in the performances of the Proteas. Understandably, South Africa will now hope to continue their great form into the T20 series and win it convincingly to make up for the loss in test series.
South Africa will be keen to showcase their strength in the limited over format once again in the T20 tournament. They have some great batsmen who can hit it all over the park to terrorize Sri Lankan bowlers.
Sri Lanka looking to forget the nightmare of ODIs
The visitors must have thought that they could do better in the ODI series, given their performances in the Test series. A 5-0 loss in the One Day series has hit the Sri Lankans hard and they look flat all of a sudden. With ICC cricket World Cup just around the corner, they must be concerned about their performances in the 50 over format.
