Srilankan has lost the first match but will be looking forward to square up the series. The squad is very young and all are in their learning phase of their career. Experience player’s like Dinesh Chandimal, haven’tUpul Tharanga, Nuwan Kulasekara have to play with some responsibility like Kusal Mendis, if they want to win this series. Captain Upul Tharanga himself have to lead the side from the front, by opening the innings as he has great stats while opening for Sri Lanka. Also, their bowling attack except Sahasn’tlooked threatful.
Good thing for visitors is that there are no injury issues till now. Sri Lanka will be happy that their star batsman Kusal Mendis have come into form at right time. Also the fact that mystery chinaman spinner Lakshan Sandakan creating problems for host batsman are really encouraging signs for visitors.
South Africa have dominated the visitors once again, like they have been doing recently in this series. They find themselves again in the drivers zone, and it is an good opportunity for them to completely whitewash their subcontinent counterparts.
Host will be pleased by their experienced players performance. Amla and De Kock continued their form and Duplessis and Devillers got good match practice for the upcoming games. The bowling attack was lead really well by Parnell, Tahir, Morris, Rabada. South Africa are not known for tinkering with winning combination and are unlikely to alter their winning combination until any last minute injury occurs.
All fantasy player’s across India, can select his team too win some league/games.
Ab Devillers, Faf Duplessis (vc), Quinton De Kock (wk), Hashim Amla (c), Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella, Asela Garuratne, Chris Morris, Wayne Parnell, Imran Tahir, Lakshan Sandakan
Captain & Vice Captain: If Sri Lanka bats first and got bowled down again below 200,it will be again an easy run chase for the openers, as there are fewer chances of openers getting out early. But you can select Duplessis too. We have selected Amla and De Kock because they both are in good form and de Kock also a keeper.
Batsman: Faf Duplessis, ABD, Mendis all played well in the first match, so there are no other replacements for them in our team. N Dickwella opener of Sri Lanka got out early in the first match but was in great form in T20 series and had played crucial knock in each match. So Upul Tharanga makes space for Mendis from our previous team.
All-rounder: Asela Gurnatne unluckily got run out in first ODI, but got a wicket and is an handy all-rounder. Chris Morris performed really well with the bowl and was consistent in bowling. You can select JP Duminy, but we have opted Morris this time, because of his performance in the previous match.
Bowler : Wayne Parnell, Imran Tahir undoubtedly will be everyone’s first choice in bowlers list. other than that South African batsman little vulnerable facing Lakshan Sandakan
