Cricket Match Preview:

South Africa continued their fine form in the limited overs leg of the series against Sri Lanka. After winning the first T20 via super over, they comfortably won the second T20 international cricket game by 16 runs. Sri Lanka’s tough run in the limited overs format of the cricket game continued as after losing the ODI cricket series by 5-0, they have now lost the T20 cricket series as well.

Sri Lanka began the tour on a high as they become the first ever Asian side to win the test series in South Africa. However, since then, they have lost seven cricket games on the trot and this tour is now becoming another failure for them. They did a fine job in their first cricket game when they nearly defended their low score of 134 runs against a strong South African batting line up. The second cricket game returned the normalcy as Sri Lanka first conceded 180 runs while fielding and then failed to chase down the total by 16 runs.

South Africa had a bit of a struggle in the first cricket game, but they would be impressed by the way they played the second cricket game. While in the first cricket game it was the brilliance of Imran Tahir, in the second cricket game it was the combined effort of RR Hendricks and HE van der Dussen that took the cricket game away from Sri Lanka.

Isuru Udana held the Sri Lankan batting together in the second T20 cricket game but was let down by the other batsmen. Skipper Lasith Malinga has publicly criticized the approach of his batsmen and it remains to be seen if their batsmen can put the runs on the board for their bowlers to win them the last game of cricket.

South African players will disperse for their IPL franchises soon but before that, they would like to win this cricket series by 3-0 before leaving for India. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, would desperately want to tour on a high.

Cricket Match Information:

South Africa will take on Sri Lanka in the third and final T20 cricket game of the three-match T20 cricket series. South Africa have already won the cricket series by winning the first two games. They will now look to clean sweep Sri Lanka and end the home series on a high.

South Africa

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

South Africa have won the cricket series and would like to clean sweep the cricket series. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven that played in their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of South Africa’s playing XI:

  • RR Hendricks
  • HE van der Dussen
  • Aiden Markram
  • David Miller
  • JP Duminy
  • L Sipamla
  • Chris Morris
  • D Pretorius
  • S Qeshile
  • Dale Steyn
  • Tabrez Shamsi

Sri Lanka

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sri Lanka had a famous win in the test series but have lost every game since then. Our prediction is of the inclusion of a few new players in their lineup for this cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Sri Lanka’s playing XI:

  • WIA Fernando
  • JDF Vandersay
  • PHKD Mendis
  • BKG Mendis
  • AK Perera
  • NLTC Perera
  • Niroshan Dickwella
  • DM de Silva
  • I Udana
  • Akila Dhananjaya
  • Lasith Malinga

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Aiden Markram has been given the opportunity in this cricket series. He has not been at his best so far but our prediction is of a good performance from him in this cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international T20 cricket match played here was between Pakistan and South Africa. South Africa won that cricket game by defending the total of 188 runs. Pitch in Johannesburg has always been great for batting. Our prediction is of high first innings score in this cricket game especially if South Africa bat first. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

South Africa will begin this game of cricket as overwhelming favourites as they have already sealed the cricket series. They have been in great form in the home series against Pakistan and now Sri Lanka in limited overs format. Hence, our prediction is of South Africa’s victory in the next cricket game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Aiden Markram (SA) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Dale Steyn (SA) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

David Miller (SA)
