Sri Lanka vs South Africa 1st ODI
The first match of the three-match ODI series between Sri Lanka vs South Africa will be played on September 2, 2021, at the R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. The two teams are in great form in the ODIs. In that case, I hope the first match will be very competitive.
Sri Lanka Preview:
Sri Lanka has already played a three-match ODI series against India at home and they lost the series 2-1. In that case, Sri Lanka lost the first match to India by 6 wickets, the second match by 3 wickets and the third match Sri Lanka won by 3 wickets. The Sri Lankan batsmen did very well in the India-Sri Lanka series. Avishka Fernando scored 159 runs in three matches, Charith Asalanka scored 127 runs in three matches, Chamika Karunaratne scored 90 runs in three months and Bhanuka Rajapaksa scored 89 runs in three months. The batsmen do a lot better than the batsmen did. In that case, Wanindu Hasaranga took three wickets with 82 runs in two matches, Akila Dananjaya took three wickets with 40 runs in one match. The Sri Lankan team can beat any team on their own soil, they have the strength. In that case, it will not be easy for South Africa.
South Africa preview:
South Africa ended the 1-1 ODI series with Island a few days ago. For the South Africans in the series, Janneman Malan scored 261 runs in three matches, Quinton de Kock scored 124 runs in one match, Rassie van der Dussen scored 79 runs in three matches. In that case, South Africa Andile Phehlukwayo took 6 wickets for 16 runs in three matches, Tabraiz Shamsi took five wickets for 123 runs in three matches, Keshav Maharaj took three wickets for 139 runs in three matches.
The pitch of R.Premadasa Stadium is a lower run pitch. The batsmen get more benefits than the batsmen. Even then the run will be 150+.
At present, the skies of Colombo are much clearer. In that case, there is no possibility of rain. I hope cricket fans will be able to watch the whole game.
The pitch also the weather understand that the team that wins the toss must decide to bat.
Sri Lanka: Coming Soon.
South Africa: Coming Soon.
Although Sri Lanka will play on their own soil, the current team performance is not so good. On the other hand, the South African team is also not in good form. The match between the two teams will be tough.
South Africa will win this match.
