SL vs SA Dream11 Grand League Team | South Africa vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I

SL vs SA Dream11 Grand League Team | South Africa vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I

Sri Lanka, failing to make a contest of any of the five One Day Internationals, would come out looking for redemption in the Twenty 20 Internationals. T20I is a different proposition and that what gives cricket enthusiasts some hope that the islanders may do better in the shorter format. However, much of their chances rely on the Kusal Mendis and Thisara Perera who can use their ability and experience to take on the hosts.

South Africa has named a similar-looking squad for the T20Is, as they see it as a part of their preparation for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The strong Protea line-up against a down-and-out Sri Lankan doesn’t leave in much to ponder, unless of course the latter produce something special to make a game out of it.
