SL vs SA 2nd ODI Match Preview
Sri Lanka has started the series on a positive note after winning the first game by 14 runs. Opting to bat first, Avishka Fernando played a fine knock of 118 runs and made sure that the Lankans reached the 300-mark.
In the middle order, Asalanka also played a brilliant knock of 72 runs. Their skipper Dasun Shanaka along with others did not finish the innings well.
With the ball, Hasaranga gave them an early breakthrough. Akila Dananjaya, who was a bit costly in his first spell came back very well in his second spell and picked up 2 wickets, and ended the partnership between Markram and Rassie Van der Dussen. In the end, their bowlers did a good job and won the game for them.
South Africa looked very good in the Asian conditions and will hope to use that in this game as well. With the ball, their new-ball bowlers, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje did not look in a good shape.
The proteas will be without the services of their regular skipper Temba Bavuma who injured his thumb in the last game. Henrich Klaasen is likely to lead the side for the remaining games.
Keshav Maharaj was the pick from the bowlers and made full use of the spin-friendly conditions and picked up 2 wickets. Tabriaz Shamsi also bowled decently and picked up a wicket. Kagiso Rabada also came back well in the death and picked up 2 wickets.
With the bat, Aiden Markram looked in perfect form and scored 96 runs and fell short of 4 runs from a brilliant century. In the middle order, Rassie van der Dussen also played an excellent knock of 59 runs but was not able to cross the line in the end.
Both the teams look equally strong and the Proteas will hope that they perform better with the ball in this game.
