About the Match

South Africa sealed their ongoing series against Sri Lankan women 2-0 with a narrow two-wicket win. The fight exhibited by the Sri Lankans in the defense of an under par total was commendable and has certainly opened up a wide array of possibilities going forward. The two teams are set to clash for the third time in the series on 6th February at Centurion. With series already decided, the upcoming match might be of little importance for the Proteas, but it will be chance to redeem something for Sri Lankans. The Proteas might decide to test a couple of youngsters as a part of their World Cup plans, but wrapping up the series 3-0 will be their first priority. With both Sri Lanka and South Africa looking to register a win in the final game, we expect a thriller of a contest on Wednesday.

Match Preview

South Africa Women

Despite the absence of Lizelle Lee, the South African women have managed to turn results in their favor in both the matches. Although the absence of their star batswomen was felt in the second match, the Protean women somehow managed to crawl their way to the victory.

Chasing a relatively small total of 106, skipper Dane van Niekerk once again got them off to a rapid start and they looked well set to overhaul the target quickly, but her dismissal triggered a collapse from which the Proteas did well to recover. South Africa went from 35 for no loss to 97 for 8, but a responsible 15-run knock from de Klerk eventually saw them home.

Earlier with the ball, South African women started magnificently by picking up Perera and Sanjeewani inside the first three overs. Both the batswomen were accounted for by Marizanne Kapp who returned with the figures of 4-0-17-3. However, Proteas' win was set up by an exceptional spell from Luus who registered a five-for at the expense of just 14 runs.

South Africa Women Starting Lineup

Dane van Niekerk, Tazmin Brits, Marizanne Kapp, Lara Goodall, Sune Luus, Nadine de Klerk, Saarah Smith, Faye Tunnicliffe, Shabnim Ismail, Masabata Klaas, Tumi Sekhukhune.


Sri Lanka Women

Compared to the first match of the series, Sri Lankan women did exceedingly well, depicting their massive steps towards improvement. Their inexperience, however, was evident towards the back-end of their innings as they failed to get to a competitive total despite being in a reasonably good position.

Batting first on a tricky surface, their openers yet again failed to get them off to a good start. Their middle-order came to the rescue and laid down a perfect platform to launch a late assault. However, the introduction of Luus from South Africa brought about a collapse from which the Islanders could never recover.

Overall, the Sri Lankan women did reasonably well in the defense of the total and making a match out of it. Barring their opening bowlers in Prabodhani and Kulasuriya who happened to be victims to Dane van Niekerk's assault, all their bowlers contributed well. Siriwardene was their pick of their bowlers and returned with the impressive figures of 4-1-12-2. At one time, Sri Lanka had the Proteas down on the mat when they picked Ismail in the 19th over. However, their inexperience in the field showed yet again as a misfield allowed South Africa to cruise home with two wickets in hand.

Sri Lanka Women Starting Lineup

Hasini Perera, Chamari Atapattu, Imalka Mendis, Shashikala Siriwardene, Nilakshi de Silva, Kavisha Dilhari, Prasadani Weerakkody, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Achini Kulasuriya, Harshitha Madavi, Inoka Ranaweera.

Match Prediction

After a one-sided win for the hosts in the first match, it was refreshing to see the game go down to the wire in the second. Sri Lanka's young side punched well above their weight to trouble the hosts before they were left heartbroken. However, there will be a huge concern about the form of their openers who haven't looked comfortable at all in the first two matches. South African women, on the other hand, have their skipper, Dane van Niekerk, in fabulous form. With the advantage of playing at home and an overall better-balanced lineup on paper, the Proteas are better placed to win the third encounter and wrap up the series 3-0.
