SA vs SL Fantasy Prediction:
South Africa:SA’s hopes have dashed. No one would have ever imagined this condition of the Proteas. The biggest reason for this upset tournament is the flop batting order. The application was missing the starts never got converted into anything substantial. ABD or no ABD, this sort of cricket from one of cricket’s powerhouse was never foreseen. Amla never looked like in the form, and one should not be surprised if these 2 matches are the last of his cricketing career. They have shown a lot of trust in Aiden Markram but he also could not deliver. 3 standout batsman for them in this season are Quinton, Faf and Rassie van Dussen. Rassie is the talent for the future, the maturity that he has shown in this big tournament is commendable. They still have two more games to lift their position in the points table. It might sound inconsequential but might work as a healing balm for their cricketing pride which has taken a massive hit. In your Dream11 team take only these 3 batsmen in the batting section as no other player has contributed with the bat.
Probable XI: Hashim Amla, David Miller, Imran Tahir, Faf du Plessis (c), Chris Morris, Quinton de Kock (wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Kagiso Rabada, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungi Ngidi
Srilanka:Srilanka has evoked in the tournament yet again with the win against England. They have done the biggest upset of this tournament. With 6 points in 6 match, their campaign is still alive. After a woeful batting performance in the first innings in which Angelo Mathews (with is fighting 85*) dragged the score to 232. Avishka Fernando looked really good in his short span at the crease so he would be the player to watch out for, baring these 2 players no one put their hand up. Defending a score of 232 against England was almost impossible as they showed a six-hitting partly in the following match against Afghanistan. But, despite all their troubles, Sri Lanka found heroes. They found a hero in Lasith Malinga (4 for 43) who fought his creaking body to turn back the clock. Through the speed might have been reduced by 10km/hr but the accuracy was the same we use to see earlier. He was ably supported by Nuwan Pradeep and Dhananjaya de Silva. A better batting performance would be expected from them in this match if they need to show any competition to the Proteas.
Probable XI: Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews, Isuru Udana, Thisara Perera, Jeevan Mendis, Nuwan Pradeep, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Kusal Perera (wk), Kusal Mendis, Avishka Fernando
