South Africa and Sri Lanka will play in the 25th ICC 2021 Men’s T20 World Cup match at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. We will cover Prediction SA vs SL Dream11, Probably Playing 11, and Fantasy cricket tips.
South Africa made a good comeback by winning the last game against the West Indies and are currently at 4th position in the points table of the T20 ICC Men’s World Cup Group 1.
Once again, Skipper Bavuma came out early, but teammate Reeza Hendricks hit well. At number 3, Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram, scored 43 * and 51 * runs and led the team to victory. In low-middle order, Klassen and Miller looked slightly out of shape in the opener.
The performance of the bowlers was brilliant in the last game. Nortje, Rabada and Maharaj have been the consistent land takers, with Pretorius winning three wickets in the previous game.
Sri Lanka lost a match for the first time in this tournament and has slipped to 4th Group 2 ICC T20 World Cup point table position.
The performance of the opening pair has been an area of concern for SL because both the players, Kusal Perera and Pathum Nissanka, have played a couple of good innings individually but have not put in a team performance. In the middle order, Asalanka and Rajapaksa are in great shape and consistently scoring runs. Still, Avishka Fernando couldn’t play with the bat in the last two games.
Bowlers’ performance has degraded in recent games. Hasaranga picked up a couple of plots and Dasun Shanaka got one. In the last match, the crucial wicket taker, Lahiru Kumara, conceded many runs and failed to collect a wicket.
Sri Lanka still has a chance of qualifying for the playoffs if it wins the remaining matches.

Trump Card choice for SA vs SL Dream11 Team.
(2M, 7O, 1W)
