SL vs SA Live Streaming- South Africa tour of Sri Lanka 2021, 1st ODI. Sri Lanka and South Africa are all set to square up against each other in an upcoming white-ball series, comprising three one-day internationals and as many T20Is.
The first one-day international is scheduled to be played on 2nd September 2021 at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The series will be a part of the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.
The hosts will have the advantage of playing in home conditions. They will be coming into the series with some confidence. After facing a severe bashing in England, the Lankans exhibited some morale-boosting performances against India at home.
They lost the three-match ODI series 2-1 but went onto win the T20 series by a 3-0 margin.
After losing the first T20 international, the hosts came back strongly and won the next two games against India. Wanindu Hasaranga was the leading wicket-taker in the series with 7 wickets in 3 games, while Dhanjaya de Silva contributed the most runs for the team, scoring 72 runs in 3 matches at an average of 72.00.
In what has come as a big boost for them, Kusal Perera has recovered from Covid-19 but he is likely to mark his return in the T20 series. Dinesh Chandimal has also earned a recall for the white-ball series as well. Dasun Shanaka will continue leading the side, while Dhananjaya de Silva will be his deputy.
South Africa, on the other hand, would be playing the ODI games without a few prominent members such as Quinton de Kock, Lungi Ngidi, and David Miller. The trio is likely to join the side later in the T20 series. South Africa last played a T20 series against Ireland, which they won 3-0. Ireland, however, managed to level the ODI series 1-1, which was played before that.
South Africa will be led by Temba Bavuma, while Heinrich Klaasen is likely to replace Quinton de Kock as the wicket-keeper in the playing 11.
