A nail-biting thriller in the 1st T20I has set the tone nicely for the T20I series. Sri Lanka will be disappointed that they failed to close the game after displaying such courageous fight but at the same time they will take immense confidence from the 1st T20I.
On the other hand, South Africa will be keen on correcting the errors they committed and will also look to check the mettle of their young guns as the management has rested their core players for the second and third T20I.
Here are the top three fantasy cricket picks for the SA vs SL 2nd T20I.
The veteran pace bowler was unplayable in the first T20I and what was impressive to see was the accuracy he still has while nailing his yorkers and slower ones.
Malinga will be Sri Lanka’s key bowler and the team will expect him to produce wickets with the new ball and also provide control in the death overs.
The battle between Malinga and South Africa’s finishers will be an interesting prospect and it may decide the fate of the game.
The hard-hitting middle-order batsman will have to take more responsibility in the absence of Faf du Plessis. Miller is in good form recently and he will be disappointed with the fact that he didn’t stay till the end in the first T20I.
However his presence in the middle order brings solidarity and South Africa will be hoping that comes good once again in the second T20I.
The leg-spinner was at his absolute best in the super over and will be pumped up after such a surreal performance.
His spin bowling will be a key threat for the visitors in the second T20I and South Africa will expect him to continue to weave his magic.
