Sri Lanka playing for pride is likely to spring a surprise in Port Elizabeth

  • South Africa have lost 2 matches in a row at St. George’s Park (ODIs).
  • Sri Lanka won the last 2 matches against South Africa after going 3-0 down in their last series (ODIs).
  • Sri Lanka have been beaten by South Africa in 14 of the last 16 ODI games played.

South Africa will continue their good form and are poised to win this the 4th ODI match of the 5 match series against Sri Lanka.


South Africa wrapped up the five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka in Durban but face a tricky task in their next match. St. George’s Park will host the 4th ODI and Ottis Gibson’s men are in poor form there. I am tipping Sri Lanka to win at 3.60 and backing Kusal Mendis to be their top batsman.

South Africa Team Review

South Africa put the ODI series against Sri Lanka beyond doubt by winning the 3rd ODI in Durban. Rain interrupted play while the Proteas were bowling and so the match was decided by the DLS method. Ottis Gibson’s team emerged triumphant by 71 runs. South Africa might be wary of exerting themselves too much with the ICC Cricket World Cup just two and a half months away. The series being in the bag means there is less reason to than there would otherwise have been. The Proteas have lost back-to-back ODI at St. George’s Park against India and Pakistan. The odds are short on another Proteas victory in any case as a result of them having won the first three ODIs of this series. South Africans are paying for the win on Wednesday.


Sri Lanka Team Review

Sri Lanka have lost all three ODIs against the Proteas and there is not much time for them to gain form ahead of the World Cup. This gives the Lions all the more reason to do so. There were positives for Chandika Hathurusingha’s outfit in the 3rd ODI. Oshada Fernando and Kusal Mendis were enjoying a promising third-wicket partnership before rain interrupted play.
Mendis ultimately fell narrowly short of a second fifty in three ODIs. His form with the bat will be important as Sri Lanka look to pull off an upset win in Port Elizabeth.


Probable playing XI.

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

Sri Lanka- Niroshan Dickwella, Avishka Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Oshada Fernando, Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Akila Dananjaya, Lasith Malinga, Kasun Rajitha, Vishwa Fernando


Our Prediction South Africa vs Sri Lanka 4th ODI

Sri Lanka may spring a surprise, but South Africa look strong to win. Sri Lanka have more to play for than South Africa and the hosts are in unsatisfactory form at St. George’s Park. There is value in backing Chandika Hathurusingha’s men to win. In-form Kusal Mendis is tipped for top Sri Lanka batsman. David Miller is worth backing for top South Africa batsman due to his fine record in Port Elizabeth. Keep visiting Premium Cricket for more updated information.
