South Africa vs Sri Lanka Match Prediction

I present my SA vs SL match prediction for the World Cup game in Delhi on 7 October. While South Africa have never won the ICC global event, Sri Lanka won the trophy back in 1996. This promises to be an interesting contest between a strong South Africa squad and a developing Sri Lanka side.

Weather and Pitch Report

On 7 October, Delhi will be warm and sunny. On a cloudless day, the temperature will vary between 24 and 36 degrees Celsius.

With just one 300-plus score in the last 10 ODI matches, this ground has witnessed relatively low scores. The pitch is bowling friendly, with assistance offered to both seamers and spinners.

Today Match Toss Prediction Astrology

In the best toss prediction, I expect the coin to fall in South Africa’s favour. In my today cricket World Cup toss prediction, South Africa will prevail over Sri Lanka.

South Africa vs Sri Lanka Today Prediction: South Africa to Win

South Africa are coming off a 3-2 win over Australia in a bilateral ODI series. They will carry that confidence into the ICC event.

Led by Bavuma, SA have a strong batting line up comprising the likes of De Kock, Hendricks, Klaasen, Markram, Van der Dussen and Miller. The bowling led by Rabada and Ngidi is also strong, with ample support I seam and spin alike. Among the seamers, they have Magala, Jansen and Coetzee. Maharaj will lead the spin attack, with assistance from Shamsi and part-timer Markram.

Last month, Sri Lanka did well to reach the final of the Asia Cup. Though they lost badly to India in the title clash, they had many positives to celebrate. There are a few strong batsmen, such as Mendis, Asalanka and Samarawickrama, in the top order. Sri Lanka will miss the services of Hasaranga who is nursing a hamstring injury. However, Hasaranga could still play as a replacement for any player who gets injured during the tournament.

Sri Lanka have several other competent spinners in the form of Wellalage, Theekshana, and Dhananjaya De Silva. However, the fast bowling resources are thin. Dasun Shanaka’s wards will depend heavily on Pathirana, assisted by Madhushan and Rajitha.
