Sri Lanka Form


Sri Lanka have lost the opening two T20I matches of this series against South Africa. They now go into the final match with the series already lost.

The opening match saw the hosts lose by 28 runs. They showed little fight in the second fixture as South Africa romped to a nine wicket win.

Batting first Sri Lanka could only muster 103 runs. They were bowled out in under 19 overs as Kusal Perera top scored with 30 runs.

The bowlers never had a chance of defending that. In the end South Africa cruised to victory with just under six overs to spare.

Sri Lanka Team News


Sri Lanka are under pressure to get their combinations right ahead of the T20 World Cup. They have struggled with bat in hand which could force a few changes for the final match.

South Africa Form


South Africa sealed the series win in the 2nd T20 against Sri Lanka in Colombo. It was a superb all round performance by the visitors who are continuously improving in the shortest format.

The charge was led by Tabraiz Shamsi (3-20) and Aiden Markram (3-21) as they bowled Sri Lanka out for 103 runs. From there it was a matter of when South Africa would win, rather than if they would win.

Quinton de Kock hit 58* while Aiden Markram ended unbeaten on 21 runs. The chase was complete in just over 14 overs.

South Africa eam News


With the series in the bag South Africa may look to give a few others a run. Expect Lungi Ngidi, David Miller and George Linde to get a chance in this match.
