The second T20I between South Africa (SA) and Sri Lanka (SL) is set to take place at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday.

The South Africans came up with a brilliant performance in the first game, with the likes of Aiden Markram and Anrich Nortje impressing with bat and ball respectively. They will be eyeing another win to close out the series, but the Sri Lankans will look to bounce back with a better performance in what promises to be a cracking game in Colombo.

SL vs SA, 2nd T20I

Date and Time: 12th September at 7:00 PM IST

Venue: R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo


Pitch Report

As seen in the previous game, a competitive track beckons in Colombo. There isn't much swing on offer for the pacers, which may lure the batsmen into attacking them early on. As the match progresses, the spinners will come into play, making it difficult to score runs in the middle overs. Both teams will ideally look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 150-160 being a decent total at the venue.


Today’s SL vs SA Dream11 match top picks

Wicketkeeper

Quinton de Kock: Although Quinton de Kock got some runs under his belt in the previous game, he couldn't get a big one. Given his form and experience, De Kock is one to watch out for in this game.

Batsman

Avishka Fernando: Avishka Fernando has blown hot and cold on this tour, but his hundred in the ODI series is still highly valued. With a big knock due at the top of the order, Fernando could be a handy option for your fantasy team.

All-rounder

Wanindu Hasaranga: Star all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga starred with the ball in the previous game with a couple of wickets in the middle overs. Although he hasn't been able to come up with a good performance with the bat, he is a must-have in your SL vs SA Dream11 fantasy team.

Bowler

Tabraiz Shamsi: Although Tabraiz Shamsi only bowled a couple of overs in the first game, he still managed to pick up a wicket in the middle overs. Nevertheless, Shamsi has been one of the best bowlers in this format this year, making him one to watch out for in this game.
