SL vs SA Dream11 team, Sri Lanka vs South Africa 1st ODI Prediction who will win


SL vs SA Dream11 Today Match Prediction: This series will be a part of ODI super league as crucial points are up for grabs. Sri Lanka are in a pathetic situation with respect to the points table and they need to turn the table around with some wins under their belt.

South Africa are missing their star batter in Quinton de Kock who has been rested ahead of the Indian Premier League and the WT20. Their batting line up does look thin without the southpaw which was visible when they lost a game against Ireland in Quinton de Kock’s absence.

Sri Lanka should have won their last ODI series against India but Deepak Chahar’s heroics in the 2nd ODI helped India to seal the series but Sri Lanka played much better cricket after going down terribly in the first game. They showed great character to even come back and win the T20I series which was considered an even more difficult challenge to them although India’s side went from bad to worse because of covid outbreak in the camp as they were forced to play with only 3 batsmen in the team.

SL vs SA 1st ODI Dream11 Prediction

  • Dushmantha Chameera has played one game against SA in 2015 and returned wicketless but he is a much improved bowler now.
  • Dhananjaya de Silva has 297 runs in 13 games against SA
  • Kagiso Rabada has 23 wickets against SL in 15 games.
  • Tabraiz Shamsi has 8 wickets in 6 games against SL
  • Akila Dhananjaya has 16 wickets in 9 games against SA.

SL vs SA Today Match Prediction

Wanindu Hasaranga will continue to be their most important bowler along with Dushmantha Chameera. Both these players have got an IPL gig and it only goes on to show the kind of quality they possess. Sri Lanka are missing Kusal Perera who is their most experienced batter and have decided to move on from Angelo Mathews.

They do have an inexperienced side but it’s the only way they can rebuild their side leading up to world cup in 2023. Chamika Karunaratne seemed like a very good prospect with both bat and ball. There is a lot of scope for improvement but his lower order hitting and decent enough seam bowling proved to be a handful against India.

SL vs SA Winning Chances

The visitors walk into the game as favorites just like any other opposition when it comes to Sri Lanka as is the current state of Sri Lankan cricket team. They have shot themselves by suspending Dhanushka Gunathilaka who was one of their shining lights in their pathetic batting lineup.

South Africa have 2 of their best seamers in the country in Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada along with one of the best spinners in white ball cricket at the moment Tabriaz Shamsi.
