SL vs SA Dream11 Prediction: Hosts Sri Lanka will be locking horns with South Africa in the third and final T20I match at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on 14 September. The visiting South African team have already sealed the three-match T20I series in their favour with a 2-0 scoreline after their remarkable wins in the first two T20I matches.
The Keshav Maharaj-led South African team registered a comprehensive 9-wicket victory in the second T20I match to seal the three-match T20I series in their favour with the final game of the tour to go. Earlier the visitors also defeated the host Sri Lankan side by 28 runs in the first T20I. Sri Lanka won the three-match ODI series by 2-1 margin and they would want to put up a better performance especially with the bat in this third and final T20I match.
This will be the sixth straight match of this Sri Lanka vs South Africa limited-overs series at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Therefore, the spinners are likely to get more assistance from the track as it will slow down to a great extent. This will be the last match of the Lankan tour for South Africa and they would be hoping to finish things on a winning note.

Pitch Report: The wicket at the R.Premadasa Stadium will have enough assistance both for the batters and bowlers. There will be decent amount of help for the spinners and the surface is expected to slow down as the match progresses. The par score will remain around the 160-170 mark. However, batting first will be the perfect option on this track.
Brief score of the last result at the venue: South Africa 105/1 defeated Sri Lanka 103/10 by 9 wickets in the second T20I.
South Africa has been the better team in this three-match T20I series and thus, it will be a good move to pick more players from the visiting side in your respective fantasy cricket teams. However, Sri Lanka are expected to make a fighting comeback in this game as they are playing in their familiar home conditions. In a very noticeable fact, pack your dream teams with as many spinners from both the sides.
WICKET-KEEPERS: Quinton de Kock, Dinesh Chandimal
BATSMEN: Aiden Markram, Reeza Hendricks, Kusal Perera
ALL-ROUNDERS: Wanindu Hasaranga, Dhananjaya de Silva
BOWLERS: Tabraiz Shamsi, Keshav Maharaj, Bjorn Fortuin, Maheesh Theekshana
South Africa will once again be the favourites to register a big win in this third and final T20I match. The visitors have been phenomenal in the first two T20I games with collective performances from the batting as well as bowling departments. However, Sri Lanka will be looking to make a strong comeback with an improved performance both with the bat and ball.
Things have not turned out that well in the batting department for the Sri Lankan side as they failed to chase down 164 in the first T20I and got bundled out for just 103 runs in the previous outing. The hosts would want the likes of Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva and Dinesh Chandimal to take the responsibility in this game. Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana have been really good with the ball and they would want to continue the good work.
Sri Lanka leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga has once again delivered remarkably well with the ball in this home limited-overs series against South Africa. Wanindu has taken 3 wickets in 2 matches, however, he has not got much of support from the batsmen. He is currently the No.2 ranked T20I bowler in the ICC T20I Rankings. Wanindu Hasaranga was also the Player of the Series during the last T20I series against India at home.
For Sri Lanka, experienced swashbuckling batsman Kusal Perera got a crucial start of 30 runs off 25 balls on his return to the national team. The left-hander will be a key player to watch out for in this important match before the all-important ICC T20 World Cup. Kusal has already featured in a total of 50 T20I matches for Sri Lanka scoring more than 1300 runs.

Dhananjaya de Silva
The South African side have been superb in both the batting and bowling departments so far in the two T20I matches. The duo of Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram have performed really well with the bat and they would want to continue the great work in this last match of the tour. In the bowling department, Tabraiz Shamsi, skipper Keshav Maharaj have been remarkable and have got support from Bjorn Fortuin and Anrich Nortje.
South Africa’s experienced wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock smashed a wonderful match-winning unbeaten knock of 58 runs off 48 balls that included 7 boundaries in the second T20I. The southpaw batsman also scored 36 runs in the first T20I against Sri Lanka. He will once again be a crucial performer for South Africa in the batting department due to his years of experience.
|Quinton de Kock||56||1699||136.69|
The No.1 bowler in the ICC T20I Rankings, Tabraiz Shamsi, showed his class in the recently concluded second T20I match against Sri Lanka registering excellent figures of 3 for 20 in his quota of four overs. He was also economical with the ball in the first match and picked a scalp as well. The chinaman bowler is just one wicket away from the milestone of 50 scalps in the T20I format.
