A win which was eluded for the Proteas in this series finally came their way in the first ODI when they tamed the Sri Lanka ina defiant manner by 8 wickets courtesy an unbeaten ton 112 off 114 deliveries from the skipper Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock’s 81 from 72.

Ngidi and Tahir made it tough for Sri Lanka

Earlier in the day, it was Sri Lanka who were put into bat after Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss. Sri Lanka had the worst possible start as lost their openers inside 4 overs for a score of 23 on the board.

Lungi Ngidi was the one to initiate the damage which was later apprehended by Imran Tahir in the middle overs. Sri Lanka had two good partnerships in the middle in the form of Kusal Perera and Oshada Fernando’s 76 for the third wicket and later it was Dhananjaya de Silva and Kusal Mendis stand for 94 runs for the fifth wicket.

Imran Tahir was causing problems for the batsmen in the middle overs bowling some tight overs and taking wickets at regular intervals. He removed the dangerous looking trio of Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera and Dhananjaya de Silva which completely broke the backbone of Sri Lanka and eventually they could only manage 231 runs on the board.

SL vs SA Dream11 Team

Batsmen:

  • For the hosts, the impetus would be on the likes of Quinton de Kock who breezed with a knock of 81 runs along with his skipper Faf du Plessis who got a ton to his name.
  • Reeza Hendricks, David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen are the others to bet on.
  • From Sri Lanka, the onus would be on the likes of Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera and the experienced cog Upul Tharanga.
  • Oshada Fernando also impressed in the last game and can be a considerable pick here.

All-rounders:

  • Thisara Perera will be the ardent bet in this department. Andile Phehlukwayo has an outside chance of featuring in this game but we are not taking any risks here.

Bowlers:

  • Heavy workload might force the Proteas team management to give Kagiso Rabada some rest for this game.
  • From Sri Lanka’s perspective, skipper Lasith Malinga, Akila Dananjaya and Vishwa Fernando look the sure starters.
  • Lungi Ngidi and leg-spinner Imran Tahir who made an impact in the last game will be the safest bet here along with the last match debutant Anrich Nortje.
