SL vs SA 2nd T20I: Possible Playing 11 of South Africa


SL vs SA, SA Playing 11: After losing 2-1 to the home side in the ODI series, the Proteas fought back and started the T20I series in the best way possible. On the back of a terrific batting performance, they scripted a 28 run victory over the island nation. Keshav Maharaj created history by captaining the T20I side in his debut match, and it was fair to say he nailed the role perfectly. And hence Proteas are not expected to make any changes to their playing eleven.

  • R van der Dussen is fit and available for selection.

SA Playing 11 (likely)

South Africa is likely to be unchanged. They were a far superior side in the first T20I and hence they are likely to retain the winning combination. R van der Dussen, who missed the first game due to a hamstring injury is fit and available for selection. But he will have to mostly sit on the sidelines as South Africa has already figured out the right combination. Expect the same eleven that played the 1st T20I to take the field this time as well.
