Sri Lanka

The rain-hit 4 th ODI match was reduced to 39 overs in the first innings. Batting first, Sri Lanka put a huge total of 306-7 on board, thanks to the undaunted efforts of Kusal Perera and Thisara Perera and Dasun Shanaka. The bowlers also made the most of the second innings that was reduced to 21 overs. They were economical and quick to pick wickets as well. Suranga Lakmal bowled extremely well along with all-rounders Dasun Shanaka and Thisara Perera. Having found the best playing XI, Sri Lanka is unlikely to fiddle with the squad.

South Africa

The South African bowling unit had its own highlights and challenges in the last match. They conceded a lot of runs yet picked wickets at crucial moments. The batsmen went onto the field in the second innings with a revised target of 190 in 21 overs. Opening batsmen, Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla got off to a flying start but couldn’t sustain it for long. Barring JP Duminy, the lower middle order faltered against the hosts’ bowling and lost the match by just 3 runs. South Africa could possibly bring in Tabraiz Shamsi and Kagiso Rabada into the playing XI.
