SA vs SL Halaplay Prediction | South Africa vs Sri Lanka 5th ODI Match Preview | Team News & Fantasy Team

The last ODI game is going to be wrapping up the five-match series as South African host Sri Lanka in what will be a rudimentary game on Saturday.

South Africa have won the first four games with ease and hardly were made to sweat by the opposition. The side looked to be one who has no problems with the combination they are going to deploy in the ICC Cricket World Cup, and now are testing out their fringe players to see who makes the cut in the squad. The team has been given the tag of being chokers, and that must hurt the pride of a cricketing nation who truly have some of the best players in the world. It will be interesting to see how they are going to set themselves up and prepare for the grand event.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka are struggling and apparently bleeding from every single orifice of the organisation. They are not doing well at all, and are getting dominated by their competitors. The management has got themselves some work cut out and have to make some tough calls in the coming days. If the performances don’t improve, the dream to do well in the World Cup can be kissed goodbye, as the level of competition they will be facing will be of an exponential level. Critics wonder if they are going to be one of the big name sides who will be ousted from the tournament before anyone else.

Match Details:

Venue – Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town, South Africa
