With the T20 world cup approaching, all the cricket-playing nations have been testing their squads. Amidst all the preparations, Sri Lanka host a 3 ODI and 3 T20Is against another team that is much in its rebuilding phase, South Africa. Post a brilliant series win against the fearful Indian squad the Sri Lankan side looks pretty confident and has been able to produce some exceptional talents who are capable enough to help the side conquer the world. It seems that the long phase of restricting the Sri Lankan team finally has come to an end. South Africa on the flip side has always been considered to be one of the best cricket-playing nations. The country has produced big names in the likes of A.B. de Villiers, Dale Steyn (who retired just recently), and many more. However, most of their stars are no longer a part of the national team, South Africa as a team has always dominated the group stages of any world cup level and will now look to end its bad luck in the qualifiers.
On the 2nd of September, we will witness Sri Lanka take on South Africa in the 2nd ODI of the series. The details of the match go as follows:
The rivalry between these two teams dates back to the year 1992. So far, they have played a total of 77 One Day Internationals against each other with South Africa having the upper hand. While South Africa won on 44 Occasions, Sri Lanka has clinched victory 31 times and 2 of these matches have ended up with no results at all.
South Africa: Aiden Markram, Janneman Malan, Rassie Van der Dussen, Reeza Hendricks, Temba Bavuma (C), Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, George Linde, Wiaan Mulder, Heinrich Klaasen (W), Kyle Verreynne (W), Anrich Nortje, Beuran Hendricks, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, LIzaad Williams, Lutho Sipamla, Tabraiz Shamsi.
Sri Lanka: Dasun Shanaka
Kagiso Rabada: The 26-year-old right-arm fast bowler quickly made a name for himself for the speed he is able to deliver with outstanding consistency. The bowler is feared to bowl at a constant speed of 140-150kmph and is one of the most exciting talents on the side. The player has a record of 122 wickets in just 79 ODI matches with an economy of only 5. The numbers are just the tip of the iceberg of talent this fast bowler possesses. His ability to deliver in crucial overs make him one of the bests in the side and also a player the opposition will carefully watch out for.
Wanindu Hasaranga: The young all-rounder has come out to be one of the best performers for his side. As an all-rounder, he is a right-handed batsman and a leg-break bowler. His display of sheer brilliance and skill in the series against India helped the side end a long streak of series losses. The performance was to the level that he was also invited to play for the IPL side Royal Challengers Bangalore. The 24-year-old is a promising future star for Sri Lanka and will be a player to watch out for in the upcoming matches.
The Sri Lankan side has come out to impress the world with their outstanding performance in the previous series. However, there were only a handful of players that contributed and the team will have to work considerably hard on its batting performances. South Africa on the flip side is in a kind of a rebuilding phase too but has a list of players that have international experience. We predict South Africa to win this match.
