south africa vs sri lanka


South Africa vs Sri Lanka Dream11 : It has been a tough few months for Sri Lankan cricket. Having lost six of their last seven Test matches they would be looking to turn their fortunes around with a right type of start to the series against South Africa. On the other hand South Africa have been in good form since losing to Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka and would be looking to take revenge on their home turf.

Pitch Report

A few showers are expected during the course of the Test, but it shouldn’t cause any loss of play. Durban is one venue where the hosts have lost more Tests than they have won, and their last win at this venue came against India in 2013. South Africa haven’t beaten Sri Lanka at this venue either, having drawn once and lost once, in the two Tests that they have played.

The Durban Pitch plays a little bit slow which brings the spinner a lot early in to the game.

Team News

  • One of Zubayr Hamza or Theunis de Bruyn will have to sit out – to make way for captain du Plessis who returns after serving his one-Test ban due to slow overrate.
  • In the absence of Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva might be shuffled back to three with one of Angelo Perera or Milinda Siriwardana to slot into the middle-order.
