Skipper Faf du Plessis will lead from the front to clinch the series

  • Kusal Perera shone here in the test series and is tipped for top Sri Lanka batsman, while it is the skipper Faf du Plessis who will be the top scorer for South Africa
  • South Africa have beaten Sri Lanka in six of their previous ODI series, losing two and drawing one. The Proteas therefore boast the historical edge as well as wins in the last two ODIs

South Africa Team Review

South Africa have recovered from an embarrassing test series defeat to Sri Lanka with back to back ODI wins. Ottis Gibson’s team beat Sri Lanka at the Wanderers by eight wickets and SuperSport Park by 113 runs. Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock have led the way with impressive batting performances. The former has scored 112 not out and 57 while the latter has picked up 81 and 94. The remainder for the South African batting was poor and it shows that there is a great room for improvement for the host nation. The bowling was exceptional for South Africans and Ngidi, Rabada, and Nortje combined to take 7 vital wickets. South Africa cannot afford to repeat past mistakes at Kingsmead in the 3rd ODI against Sri Lanka on Sunday. The hosts will look to Faf du Plessis to steer them to victory this time. The captain is the pick for top South Africa batsman. The Proteas are paying short odds for the win due to their impressive ODI form. De Kock is on the hunt for the top South Africa batsman. Given that du Plessis‘ form is as good, betting on him will give the max value.


Sri Lanka Team Review

Sri Lanka has got the ODI series against the Proteas off to a poor start with two straight defeats. The Lions still cannot be written off after pulling off a 2-0 test series upset win. Kusal Perera’s 153 not out in Durban’s 1st test remains the most notable individual contribution of Sri Lanka’s tour. Perera will be excited to be back at Kingsmead for the first time since. In the previous game, Sri Lanka had a very poor outing with the bat as the collapsed from 92 for 3 to be bowled out for 138. Sri Lanka lost their last 7 wickets for only 46 runs which is a big cause for concern as their batsman seem to lack composure. That being said, the bowling performance by Sri Lanka was decent as Thisara Perera and Lasith Malinga combined to take 5 wickets while conceding only 65 runs. Sri Lanka’s big issue is regarding the batting which must improve is the team wishes to be competitive in this match. Chandika Hathurusingha’s men can be backed for the win at 4.33. This would be a risky bet given that South Africa have won six of their last seven ODIs in Durban and are in form.

South Africa – Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Faf du Plessis, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Wiaan Mulder, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir
