Beginning with this game, Sri Lanka has to win their matches if they want to make it to the playoffs. Unfortunately, South Africa has not seen much of an innings in this World Cup. Watch this match today, being played at the Riverside Ground, Chester-Le-Street at 3:00 PM IST.


After a Stunning win against hosts England, in their previous encounter, Sri Lanka is bound to keep hopes alive to enter the semi-finals. They must win against Proteas today, to make the most of their position on the board.

Probable Playing XI

Dimuth Karunaratne (C), Kusal Perera (wk), Avishka Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Jeevan Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Pradeep.


Right now, the Proteas isn’t in a position to give chances to benched players. With an average run rate of 21.20, Aiden Markram did not seem to see the light of day and therefore, JP Duminy may be brought in his place. Even Hashim Amla had a perilous game this World Cup with a poor strike rate that stayed under 60.

Probable Playing XI

Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), Faf du Plessis (C), Aiden Markram/JP Duminy, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir.


The weather is expected to cooperate along with the sun. Summer temperatures seem to have set in and too much cloud cover or winds are not expected. It is indeed, going to be a bright and sunny day at Chester-Le-Street but the flat deck pitch is not going to be helping the bowlers much. The lack of swing will favor large boundaries and the batsmen who will be on a run-scoring spree.
