SL vs SA Match Prediction Tips | Sri Lanka vs South Africa Who Will Win Today Match

Dambulla, July 29 at 09:45 AM IST

After a demeaning beating at the hands of the home side in Whites, now it is time for the limited over games to take the centre stage where the visitors South Africa will try to change their fortunes and put up a decent show after the mauling they got in the Test series.

First and foremost, the visitors should be tasked to overcome the spin menace which made them look like a mediocre of a batting line-up in the Test series. They need to have a plan to tackle the spin threat Sri Lanka produce otherwise the result could be the same as we saw in the test series. With Angelo Mathews returning back to lead Sri Lanka, the team would be in a great environment and will look to dominate the visitors alike in the Test series.

South Africa do possess a threat with their formidable batting line-up with the likes of Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy, David Miller, Heinrich Klassen, the batting line up does look a static one and it will solely depend on how they tackle the spin threat in spin-friendly tracks to get themselves a chance of winning the series.

Last ODI result at the venue: Sri Lanka 216/10 lost to India 220/1 – Aug 20, 2017, by 9 wickets and 127 balls to spare.
