SAVS SL HALAPLAY PREDICTION | SOUTH AFRICA VS SRI LANKA 4th ODI MATCH PREVIEW | TEAM NEWS & FANTASY TEAM

The fourth ODI of the five-match series will be played between South Africa and Sri Lanka as the hosts have already lead by a 3-0.

South Africa have absolutely dominated this series and have shown it to the opposition how far along this side has come ever since AB de Villiers retired from international cricket. They have been in stellar form and with this group of players they will be looking to get a good outing in the ICC World Cup 2019. They have brought Amla, Duminy and Makram back in the squad for the remainder of two games, and some tinkering in the starting lineup is going to take place.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka sees things getting from being bad to worse. They are losing out on some crucial time to build a side for the ICC World Cup 2019, but injuries and inconsistency has caused them to backtrack. They are not a side who can be considered as an elite one right now, and most of their players are out of form. Troubling times are ahead for the nation, as they don’t exactly have the most experienced players in the roster.

Match Details:

Venue – St George’s Oval, Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Date & Time – 13th March | 04:30 PM IST
