Both these teams are coming into this series after witnessing different results in their previous bilateral outings. Sri Lanka last faced India at home where they registered a superb win in the T20I series but lost the ODI series. On the other hand, South Africa last levelled an away limited-overs series against Ireland. South Africa will miss some of their key players in the ODIs but they will start as favourites in this match against Sri Lanka.
