Cricket Match Preview:

Kusal Perera. That is what the first cricket test match between South Africa and Sri Lanka will be remembered for forever. In fact, it will not be a hyperbole to say that no matter what happens in the final cricket test match, this series will be remembered for the performance of Kusal Perera in the first cricket test match.

Sri Lankan cricket has been in turmoil and it is an open secret. Their regular skipper Dinesh Chandimal was not only removed but dropped from the squad as well. Dimuth Karunaratne had been made the captain of Sri Lankan team now. Everything was looking tough for them but the victory in the first cricket test match will give them much needed confidence not only for this cricket series but also for the important upcoming months.

South Africa, meanwhile, were riding high on confidence and were looking to register another cricket series win. But they did not bring their A-game into this cricket series and are now in danger of losing the series at home. In the first cricket test match, there were various moments when they could have run away with the game, but Sri Lanka kept on putting pressure on them.

Sri Lanka have had a tough time in South Africa historically. The last time they were in South Africa, they were beaten by 3-0 margin. Even for their strongest side, it has been a tough place for Sri Lanka. The pace and bounce of the surface have been known to trouble the Asian batsmen, but it has especially troubled the full of fare Sri Lankan batsmen.

Sri Lankan bowlers did a fine job in the first test match and because of them, their batsmen had a chance to win the cricket game. Sri Lanka will now have to build on this victory as their last few years have been full of turmoil. They could not have gotten a better momentum than this win as with the upcoming cricket world cup in sight, every side is looking for impetus.

Cricket Match Information:

South Africa will take on Sri Lanka in the second cricket test match at Port Elizabeth. Sri Lanka won the first game of cricket by one wicket and have left South Africa with everything to do in the last cricket test match.

South Africa

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

South Africa won the cricket series against Pakistan recently. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven despite the loss in the first cricket game.

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

  • Dean Elgar
  • Aiden Markram
  • Faf du Plessis
  • Hashim Amla
  • Quinton de Kock
  • T Bavuma
  • Duanne Olivier
  • Kagiso Rabada
  • Kesav Maharaj
  • Dale Steyn
  • Vernon Philander

Sri Lanka

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sri Lanka had a famous win in the first cricket game. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven as their last cricket game as they would not like to change the winning combination.

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

  • HDRL Thirimanne
  • FDM Karunaratne
  • BOP Fernando
  • Kusal Mendis
  • DM de Silva
  • Kusal Perera
  • Niroshan Dickwella
  • MVT Fernando
  • RAS Lakmal
  • L Ambuldeniya
  • CAK Rajitha

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Hashim Amla has had an up and down in the past few years. With him nearing the end of his career, he would like to win South Africa more cricket games with the bat than he has been doing recently. Our prediction is of a big century from him in this cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international cricket test match played here was between Australia and South Africa. That cricket game produced the scores of 350 runs maximum in the cricket game. South Africa won the game of cricket by 6 wickets. 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 favourites despite the loss in the first cricket game. They have been in great form in the home series against Pakistan whereas Sri Lanka would be on a high. But with South Africa being the home side, our prediction is of South Africa’s victory in this cricket game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Hashim Amla (SA) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Dale Steyn (SA) – 3 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Quinton de Kock (SA)
