The next fixture of triangular series will see South Africa Emerging Players locking horns against Sri Lanka Emerging at Pretoria on Saturday. This is not the first time when these two are colliding. In their first battle, Sri Lanka restricted South Africa for a mere 185 runs and then the visitors reached the target with four wickets in hand.
Sri Lanka then stepped forward to face USS XI in their next encounter which they won by wickets in hand. Achieving back to back victory must have unlifted their confidence and would try to make things difficult for the opposition.
