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

Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium, Dambulla, August 01 at 02:30 PM IST

After a dismal show in the Test Series, it was unlikely for the visitors to bounce back in the coloured uniform, but they had some indifferent plans and they were prudent in turning the situation upside down to clinch a comfortable victory in the first match by 5 wickets.

Winning the toss on a dry pitch, Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews decided to have a bat, but inside half an hour, his decision turned out to be a blunder as Sri Lanka lost half of their side for just 36 runs on the board. Speedster Kagiso Rabada was on top of his game as he was shrugging off the Sri Lankan top order with ease. Out of the first five wickets, 3 belonged to Kagiso Rabada with one run-out from Jean-Paul Duminy and a piece to Lungisani Ngidi.

If the top order was demolished by Kagiso Rabada, the second half of Sri Lanka's batting decimation was even more inflicted by left-arm chinaman Tabraiz Shamsi who ripped off the middle and lower order to stop the Lankan's from posting a total in excess of 200.

While chasing, South Africa did not had any hiccups as some vital contributions from Quinton de Kock (47 off 59), skipper Faf du Plessis(47 off 56) and an unbeaten 53 off 32 from Jean-Paul Duminy made their way easy for the chase and they eventually won the game by 5 wickets in just 31 overs.

Last ODI result at the venue: Sri Lanka 193/10 lost to South Africa 196/5 – July 29, 2017, by 5 wickets.
