September 12, 2021 5:30 pm
September 12, 2021, will see two cricket giants lock horns in the 2nd T20I series. In Colombo, the R Premadasa Stadium will host Sri Lanka vs South Africa in the buildup towards the ICC world cup. This match is part of the games scheduled in the South Africa tour of Sri Lanka cricket for 2021.
As seen in their last five matches against top teams, Sri Lanka has been on a shaky tempo. Three of their previous encounters have been against India, and the previous two against upcoming opponents, South Africa. In the first game against India, they lost. A win in the second match and a stalemate draw decided the outcome of the last matches. Sri Lanka shared the spoils with South Africa in a win and loss over the previous two games. Kusal Perera, who was missing due to covid, is expected to feature in the T2O fixture. Dinesh Chandimal will be among the lineup to strengthen the batting strategy.
South Africa has been on a good winning streak in their recent games. A loss to Sri Lanka was the only defeat experienced, and they will be looking to capitalise on their confidence. The previous encounter with Sri Lanka saw them win by 67 runs. Top stars including Lungi Ngidi, David Miller, and Quinton de Kock, who missed the ODI series, will be available for the exciting match. Henrich Klaasen is expected to wear wicket-keeping gloves, and Temba Bavuma will captain the team.
