SL vs RSA Match & Analysis

South Africa has won the T20 series 2-0 and it may use its final T20 to try some different combinations ahead of the T20 World Cup. It will still try and win, though, as a young team and a young captain try and build a team. Sri Lanka would have been very disappointed with their loss in the previous match. On a surface that should have suited it much more than the South Africans, the Sri Lankans were completely outplayed.

The final T20 will serve as another opportunity to try and get at least one win on the board.

SL vs RSA Team Previews

Sri Lanka

The T20 series has been quite bowler-friendly as the pitches have helped the spinners and the large outfield has prevented the batsmen from just swinging across the line. These were things that were supposed to be in favor of the Sri Lankans just like what we saw in the ODI's.

However, the Sri Lankan batsmen have not been able to combat the Sri Lankan bowling very well. Only Dinesh Chandimal has scored a fifty for Sri Lanka so far. In fact, none of the other batsmen have scored more than 30 runs in total over the two matches.

The return of Kusal Perera helps the Sri Lankan batting and he looked in decent touch before getting out in the previous match. In fact, even Bhanuka Rajapaksa scored very freely against the fast-bowlers before getting out against the run of play on an innocuous Markram delivery.

Sri Lanka's batting is not as bad as what we have seen and with a little bit of better planning could easily reach a total of 150.

None of the bowlers could have much of an impact in the previous match or in fact the one before that. Wanindu Hasaranga has picked up three wickets and has been the most economical bowler so far for Sri Lanka. He could be a handful with a bigger target to defend. A great pick for the Top Bowler Sri Lanka betting market in our opinion.

Kusal Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Avishka Fernando, Dhananjaya de Silva, Wanidu Hasaranga, Kamindu Mendis, L Madhushanka, PVD Chameera, Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana.

South Africa

South Africa could not have dreamed of a better result on pitches that are not the easiest to bat on. Tabraiz Shamsi, Bjorn Fortuin, and Keshav Maharaj form a very effective bowling lineup. Aiden Markram has also been able to chip in with his part-time off-spin. Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada are one of the best fast-bowling duo in T20 cricket and even though Rabada has been a bit off-color in recent matches, South Africa's bowling attack is definitely much better than Sri Lanka's and gives it a huge advantage.

Quinton de Kock scored a fifty in the previous match, the only batsman to do so from Sout Africa so far. Unlike Sri Lanka, though, most top-order batsmen have got runs including Aiden Markram, Reeza Hendricks, and David Miller.

The risk for South Africa is losing early wickets since the likes of Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, and Dwaine Pretorius can be put under pressure.

Pitch and Conditions

There is some rain around in Colombo and we could have some interruptions. The pitch has been slow in nature with a decent amount of bounce and significant turn on offer as well. That has allowed the spinners to dominate both the matches and the same is expected for the third match as well. The large boundaries prevent many sixes from being hit and something around 140-150 can be a pretty difficult score to chase down on this stadium.

SL vs RSA Betting Tips

We think this is a great opportunity for South Africa to win the series 3-0. Its bowling is in great form and is able to adapt to all kinds of conditions. The batting is a bit vulnerable but the Sri Lankan bowling may not be good enough to expose those weaknesses in this series.

Bet on South Africa to win.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. Betway


    A Fifty Scored in This Match

    No (3.20)


It is always risky to bet against a fifty being scored in a T20 match but we think this could be a great opportunity for bettors. There have only been two fifties hit in the series so far, one each from Sri Lanka and South Africa. The conditions also remain bowler friendly and will help the spinners once more.

  1. Parimatch


    Total Sixes in the Matchh

    Under 9.5 (1.80)


There were just three sixes hit in the previous match and nine in the opening match. It will require 10 sixes in this final match for you to lose this bet. Considering what we have seen so far, we are very happy to back the 'Under' in this one.

  1. 10CRIC


    South Africa Top Bowler

    Tabraiz Shamsi (3.25)


With Shamsi in the form of his life and currently rated as the number one T20 bowler in the world, getting odds of over 3x for him to be the Top Bowler is quite good. Shamsi will spin the ball viciously in both directions and could easily take the most wickets once more.
