Sri Lanka vs South Africa – 2nd T20I Betting Tips

Host Sri Lanka will be looking to make a strong comeback when they take on South Africa in the second T20I of the three-match series at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday.

In the series opener, the home team was completely outplayed by South Africa in all three departments. Captain Dasun Shanaka will be hoping that the side can turn things around and level the three-match T20I series.

On the other hand, South Africa will be looking to continue their winning streak after registering a comfortable 28-run win over Sri Lanka.

The team management will be hoping that the players will maintain their standards with bat and ball in this fixture. 

Sri Lanka Form and Team news: 

After a compressive defeat in the first T20I, Sri Lanka will stick to the same combination that featured in the series opener against South Africa. 

The middle-order failed to produce runs in the opening game played on Friday and the eyes will be on the players to produce a much improved batting performance on Sunday.

In the batting department, the Islanders will be heavily relying on the likes of in-form opening batter Dinesh Chandimal, Avishka Fernando, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dhananjaya de Silva, and Captain Dasun Shanaka to score the bulk of the runs in this all-important clash.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Chamika Karunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera along with the spin trio of Wanindu Hasaranga, Akila Dananjaya and Mahesh Theekshana to produce timely breakthroughs.

South Africa Form and Team News: 

After producing a clinical performance in the first T20I, South Africa are unlikely to make any changes in the starting XI for the second fixture. 

In the batting department, the visitors will be relying heavily on the likes of Aiden Markram, Reeza Hendricks, wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock and hard-hitting all-rounder David Miller to score the bulk of the runs and post a competitive score on the board.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada along with the spin trio of Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Shamsi and Bjorn Fortuin to dismantle the Sri Lanka’s vulnerable batting lineup.
