SA vs SL 2nd ODI: Playing XI, Weather and Pitch Report, and Team News


After an amicable performance in the first ODI, South Africa is planning to continue on the winning streak in the SA vs SL 2nd ODI. However, the 2nd ODI won’t be an easy call as Srilanka will be desperate for revenge. Before making any final calls as to who can win the match, let’s take a look at the teams overall.

Team overview

South Africa

South Africa have found a great opening pair in form of Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks. Both the players can hit the ball hard yet also stick to the basics when required. The middle order would be led by captain Faf du Plessis, who has been in incredible form. Anrich Nortje made an impressive debut in the last match so he might get another chance in this match as well.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka would definitely be eyeing for a win now after losing the 1st ODI against Proteas. There might be a few changes in the squad too. The team would be pinning high hopes on Osada Fernando and Upul Tharanga as both batsmen are vital if Sri Lanka wants to put up a big total. Kusal Perera also needs to showcase his talent on the field in order to make the team win. In the bowling department, one can expect fireworks from veteran bowler Malinga and newcomer Udana might be given a chance too.
