SA vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction | Playing 11 | T20 World Cup 2021

South Africa and Sri Lanka will play in the 25th match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. We will cover SA vs SL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

South Africa:

South Africa made a good comeback by winning the last match against West Indies and is currently at the 4th position on Group 1’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup points table.

Once again, Skipper Bavuma got out early, but his partner Reeza Hendricks batted well. At No.3, Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram, scored 43* and 51* runs and led the team to victory. In the lower-middle order, Klassen and Miller looked slightly out of form in the first match.

The bowlers’ performance was brilliant in the last match. Nortje, Rabada, and Maharaj have been the consistent wicket-takers, and Pretorius picked up three wickets in the previous game.

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka lost a match for the first time in this tournament and has slipped down to 4th position on Group 2’s ICC T20 World Cup points table.

The opening pair’s performance has been an area of concern for SL because both the players, Kusal Perera, and Pathum Nissanka have played a couple of good innings individually but not put up a collective performance. In the middle-order, Asalanka and Rajapaksa are in great form, and scoring runs consistently. Still, Avishka Fernando failed to perform with the bat in the last couple of matches.

The bowlers’ performance has degraded over the last couple of matches. Hasaranga picked up a couple of wickets, and Dasun Shanaka got one. In the last match, The crucial wicket-taker, Lahiru Kumara, conceded many runs and failed to pick up a wicket.

Sri Lanka still has a chance of qualifying for the playoffs if they win the remaining matches.
