About the Match

South African women sealed the ongoing series against Sri Lankan women with a convincing win at Potchefstroom. With five matches gone, three T20Is and two ODIs, Sri Lanka are yet to taste success on this tour. Sunday's game will be their final chance which they'll be playing at the same venue. Considering the selections of the two sides prior to the beginning of the tour, it was clear that both the sides were targeting the next ICC Women's World Cup. While the hosts will be particularly happy about the way they've fared in the series, Sri Lanka have a lot to ponder upon. With South African women likely to experiment a bit in the upcoming fixture, Sri Lanka might really have a better chance to win and finish the tour on a high which otherwise has been a disappointing tour.

Match Preview

South Africa Women

Going into the second ODI, South Africa received a big setback as their captain and the only in-form player, Dane van Niekerk was ruled out for the series and the next three months. However, the rest of the players stepped up their game in the absence of their regular skipper.

Laura Wolvaardt shrugged off her last match's golden duck and slammed an important fifty in the second match. She played a vital role in a 71 run partnership with Andrei Steyn which helped Proteas lay a solid foundation for a late assault. There were ample contributions from almost everyone in the middle order as Goodal and Marizanne Kapp both scored a fifty each.

Marizanne Kapp stiched a match-defining partnership with Faye Tunnicliffe as they added 85 rapid runs which eventually became the difference between a win and a loss. Defending 268, South African women were lightning in the field as they dismissed four Sri Lankan batsmen through run-outs. Barring Klaas who conceded 51 runs off her 7 overs, all bowlers contributed well to defend the total. Marizanne Kapp was the pick of the bowlers after contributing with a 34-ball 69 in the first innings.

South Africa Women Starting Lineup

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


Sri Lanka Women

It happened to be the same old story for the Sri Lankan women as they fell short despite being in a solid position at one stage of the innings. They lost their last eight wickets for just 63 runs.

Barring Chamari Atapattu, who scored 94 and was largely responsible for Sri Lanka's powerful response, no other Sri Lankan batsman was able to stay at the crease for a considerable amount of time. Although Anushka Sanjeewani did well to assist Atapattu in the 110-run stand, Sri Lankan fans and management would have liked more contribution from the duo and the rest of the players.

The dismissal of Atapattu knocked the steam out of the chase as Sanjeewania and Siriwardene Shashikala soon followed her back to the pavilion. Sri Lanka needed to score 69 of the last ten overs, but none of their batsmen was able to provide the impetus they required as they ended up thirty runs short of the target.

Sri Lanka Women Starting Lineup

Prasadani Weerakkody, Chamari Atapattu, Anushka Sanjeewani, Kavisha Dilhari, Harshitha Madavi, Nilakshi de Silva, Shashikala Siriwardene, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Inoka Ranaweera, Tharika Sewwandi, Hasini Perera.

Match Prediction

Unlike the T20I series where Sri Lankan women were hammered ruthlessly, the Islanders have managed to put up a fight in the longer version of the game. The margin of losses in both the matches so far haven't really been alarming and Sri Lanka will be confident of turning it around in the third game. South Africa, on the other hand, will be boosted by the series win and the fantastic performance of their top-order in the absence of Dane van Niekerk. While the absence of Dane van Niekerk is a big void to fill, it is highly unlikely that it will impact the final outcome of the game. We expect South Africa to win the final game and top-off a highly successful tour 3-0 win in the ODIs.
