SL vs SA, SL Playing 11: Sri Lanka is back on track. After being bullied by England a few months before, the island nation has bounced back and has started off their resumption in prime fashion. Last month they defeated India in a T20 series and now they have overpowered the mighty proteas in ODIs as well. Under Dasun Shanaka, the team has pushed above their weight. With T20 World Cup around the corner, they will be hoping to get their combinations right as they will have to first play in the Qualifiers. The addition of Kusal Perera who is coming back after COVID-19 will boost the team’s batting lineup.
With Kusal Perera back in the side, the batting is boosted a bit. The likes of Avishka Fernando and Asalanka are in fine touch right now and hence not many changes are expected in the batting department. In the bowling department Praveen Jayawickrama, who resembles Ajanta Mendis in his action is expected to make his T20I debut in this match.
