The second match of the three-match T20I series between Sri Lanka and South Africa is set to take place on Sunday, September 12 at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
In the first encounter on Friday, September 10, the Proteas won by 28 runs to take an all-important 1-0 lead in the series.
Batting first, the visitors managed 163 for five on the back of useful knocks from the top-order batters. In the run-chase, Dinesh Chandimal fought hard with an unbeaten 54-ball 66, but his knock went in vain. Aiden Markram became the Player of the Match for scoring 48 runs at a strike rate of 145.45.
The pitch in the previous game wasn’t an overly great one for batting, though it doesn’t take away the fact that South Africa bowled well.
