Sri Lanka will take on South Africa in the second game of 3-match ODI series, on September 4 at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo
The six-match limited-overs series between Sri Lanka and South Africa kicked off on Thursday, September 2 in style with hosts defeating visitors by 14 runs in the One Day International (ODI) tournament opener.
Despite the defeat, there were some positives for South Africa in the first ODI in the different parts of their chase. Aiden Markram scored a magnificent 96 runs off 90 balls and the touring team looked much in command of the match when he was at the crease.
Markram’s knock was followed by a fighting 59 from Rassie van der Dussen, who used sweeps and reverse sweep to throw Sri Lankan spinners off their line and length.
It’s a good competitive wicket with a consistent pace and bounce.
