SL vs SA Dream11 Prediction

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

Pallekele International Stadium, Pallekele, Aug 05 at 10:00 AM IST

South Africa are 2-0 up now and are just 1 win away to clinch the series after underperforming against the same opposition in the Test series. Riding on a brilliant 87 from Quinton de Kock who was perfectly allied by skipper Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla, the South African’s stood tall to clinch a much needed 6 wickets win.

The third ODI will be a do or die affair for the home side as they have to win this encounter anyhow to keep their hopes alive in the series. This match will be played at the Pallekele International Stadium where the home side has a decent record. The Sri Lankan spinners who were all over the South African batsman in the recently concluded test series have not found the perfect rhythm and are grudging to take wickets.

The Proteas look settled for one more win under their belt whereas the home side is really struggling to deliver a complete performance, the only concern for the Proteas is the form of their talented batsman and future skipper Aiden Markram who is really struggling to get going. He plodded in the Test series as well and his game is diminishing in the ODIs as well, but with the team performing well his personal form is not at all hindering the team’s fate but still, he has to overcome his woes sooner rather than later.

Read on for SL vs SA Dream11 Team News and Sri Lanka vs South Africa team news and playing 11.
