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.
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.
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.
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.
One of the fastest bowlers on show in world cricket today, Nortje can clock 150 kph with ease. We are all too familiar with his wicket-taking displays in the IPL. In just 11 ODI games, he has racked up 22 wickets.
The match can be streamed live on Sony Ten 2 and Sony Liv app.
