About the Match

South Africa held their nerve to script yet another win against Sri Lanka in what has been a dismal tour for the tourists so far. After registering a comprehensive win in the T20I series against the same team, the Proteas will now have an opportunity to wrap up the series with a win in the second ODI of the three-match series. The second match of the series is to be played at Potchefstroom on 14th February. Sri Lanka stepped up their game in the 50-over format and didn't lose without really putting up a fight. It's expected to be another close game of Cricket with the two almost evenly matched teams taking on each other.

Match Preview

South Africa Women

South Africa did exceedingly well to snatch a victory despite scoring a low total on a decent batting wicket in the first match of the series. The hosts defended their 225-run total by a narrow margin of seven runs.

Batting first after losing the toss, South Africa got off to an extremely poor start as they lost Laura Wolvaardt off her first ball of the match. Lara Goodall followed her soon thereafter for a personal score of 12. Skipper Dane van Niekerk then stitched together a wonderful partnership with Steyn to bring the Proteas back on track. Although Steyn was dismissed soon after reaching the fifty-run mark, her dismissal had no impact on Niekerk's scoring rate. The skipper got to a well-made hundred, but her dismissal stopped South Africa then and there as they could score only four runs in two overs post her dismissal.

Along with sensational knocks from Niekerk and Steyn, the Proteas' win was set up by brilliant performances from their bowlers. Although Marizanne Kapp couldn't get anything under the wicket column to her name, his tight spell played a key role in defending the total. Dane van Niekerk and Sekhukhune happened to be the picks with the ball as the duo picked up two wickets each at the expense of 33 and 26 respectively.

South Africa Women Starting Lineup

Andrie Steyn, Laura Wolvaardt, Lara Goodall, Mignon du Preez, Marizanne Kapp, Faye Tunnicliffe, Nadine de Klerk, Shabnim Ismail, Sune Luus, Masabata Klaas, Tumi Sekhukhune.


Sri Lanka Women

Despite ending up short of the target, it was a welcome performance from the visitors considering their margins of losses in the first three matches of the tour. Their bowlers did well up front and batting department punched well above their weight to scare South Africa. They, however, will be disappointed for ending up short after coming so close.

Kalsuriya and Prabhodhani got them off to a dream start as they got rid of two Protean batsmen after winning the toss. However, their bowlers failed to strangle the Proteas after getting the two wickets which allowed them to get to a competitive total.

Sri Lankan openers got them off to a kind of start they were looking for. The opening pair of Sanjeewani and Weerakkody added 57-runs for the first wicket. However, they lost their middle-order with a couple of quick wickets in the next few overs to leave them tottering at 126 for 5. Siriwardene tried to revive their innings, but her dismissal a run short of a personal half-century triggered a batting collapse resulting in a seven-run loss.

Sri Lanka Women Starting Lineup

Anushka Sanjeewani, Prasadani Weerakkody, Chamari Atapattu, Harshitha Madavi, Nilakshi de Silva, Shashikala Siriwardene, Kavisha Dilhari, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Inoka Ranaweera, Udeshika Prabodhani, Achini Kulasuriya.

Match Prediction

The first ODI of the series turned out to be more competitive than anticipated. Sri Lanka punched well above their weight but lost steam towards the back-end of the innings. Their inexperience showed as they failed to chase down the total despite being in a comfortable position at one stage. While they appear to be acquainted well with the South African conditions, playing at a new venue will be challenging. South Africa are a better team on paper and have more experience which makes them better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
