SL vs SA Match Prediction Tips | Sri Lanka vs South Africa Who Will Win Today Match
R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo, Aug 12 at 02:30 PM IST
A spirited performance in the last ODI saw the home side finally getting a win under their belt in this series in a rain-curtailed game. It wasn’t a pleasant start for the interim skipper Quinton de Kock as he lost his first game as an ODI skipper by 4 runs.
Rain gods hindered the last match many times which meant that the home side were given 39 overs to bat in the first innings. Kudos to the ground staff who managed to clear all the water around the ground on time which resulted in the start of play which was looking almost impossible at one stage.
Batting first, the Lankan Lions posted a humongous total of 306-7 thanks to some valiant efforts from Thisara Perera (51 of 45 balls), Kusal Perera (51 of 32 balls) and especially the late blitz from all-rounder Dasun Shanaka whose 65 of 34 deliveries made the biggest impact on the scoreline.
South Africa were given a revised target of 190 runs from 21 overs and they were cruising for a victory once they got off to a flier with the openers Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla coming together as they got 34 in the first three overs. The lower middle order struggled and then a breathtaking penultimate over from Suranga Lakmal who was tasked to prevent the opposition from scoring 9 runs did a fantastic job as he removed the last recognize batsman David Miller to clinch a nervy 3 runs win for his team.
