Sri Lanka vs South Africa Dream11: Top 5 Fantasy Cricket Picks 1st ODI

Share

SL vs SA Dream11: Sri Lanka will face South Africa in another white-ball leg at home after hosting Team India. The series, which will consist of three ODIs and as many T20Is, will begin on September 2. The R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo will host all six games. On September 14, the third T20I will bring the leg to a close.

Both sides have been on the wane in recent years. Sri Lanka will once again be missing some key stars through injury. On the other hand, South Africa will be without Quinton de Kock, David Miller, and Lungi Ngidi.

Sri Lanka vs South Africa Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Picks

Avishka Fernando

Fernando was in fine nick versus the Indians in the past ODI series. He had scored two half-centuries and a 33 to his name. Sri Lanka would be hoping he can get them a good start.

Dhananjaya de Silva

In a brittle-looking Sri Lankan middle order, Dhananjaya provides calm and composure. He took the side home twice versus India. He can bowl some handy off spin too.

Bavuma will be leading the side in the absence of Quinton de Kock. He is a very underrated cricketer. He averages 46 in ODIs with a century and two half- centuries to his name in 12 ODIs.

Keshav Maharaj

A proven performer in Test cricket, Maharaj is still in the nascent stages in the limited-overs format. He can revel in the slow-turning pitches Sri Lanka has on offer. In 11 matches so far, he has taken 13 wickets at an economy of 4.95.
