While on the opening day of ICC World T20, we witnessed a full day of Cricket, the weather in St Lucia didn't allow the same fate on the second day. England and Sri Lanka shared points in their opening match which was washed due to heavy rains at St. Lucia. Sri Lanka is now set to meet South Africa on 13th November at the same venue. South Africa go into the match without having played a game yet and a win here will put them on the top of the table alongside the hosts, West Indies. The weather forecast for the day isn't something fans or teams will cheer about and everyone will be hoping for rain to stay away.
Coming into the tournament, the Sri Lankan didn't put up the performance they were looking to in the warm-ups. They will be looking to make amends and put up a solid performance against the Proteas, against whom, the Lankans have a better chance as compared to England.
Sri Lankan skipper, Chamari Athapaththu will be a key player for them and her performance with the bat is likely to govern the fate of Islanders in the match as well as the tournament. With one match already done and dusted due to rain, every match will be of vital importance.
Mendis will open with Atapaththy and with Mandodara to follow, Sri Lankans have got a decent batting unit. The all-around skills and experience of Shashikala Siriwardene will be crucial especially considering the fact that the Sri Lankans do not really have a tail that is known to wag.
Chamari Atapattu, Yasoda Mendis, Hasini Perera, Shashikala Siriwardene, Dilani Manodara, Eshani Lokusuriyage, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Nilakshi de Silva, Sripali Weerakkody, Udeshika Prabodhani, Sugandika Kumari.
Currently ranked 6th in the ICC Women's T20 ranking, there is no shortage of talent in the South African squad for the World Cup. With the return of Trisha Chetty and Shabnim Ismail, their bowling department has gotten a big boost. However, the absence of Ayabonga Khaka could hurt them in crunch situations.
The spotlight will undoubtedly on their skipper Dane van Niekerk considering the run of form she's been in. She produced a match-winning effort during last year's World Cup as she picked up four wickets without conceding a run against West Indies. She scored two half-centuries in three matches in South Africa's tour of West Indies a couple of months ago and would love to carry on with her superb batting form.
Along with Dane van Niekerk, Lizelle Lee will have a vital role to play at the top of the order. She's has scored second most-highest T20I runs for South Africa in last one year and his attacking game-play at the top of the order has the potential to knock-off any opponent early in the match.
Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp, Sune Luus, Chloe Tryon, Mignon du Preez, Shabnim Ismail, Masabata Klaas, Tumi Sekhukhune, Moseline Daniels.
Both Sri Lanka and South Africa have a couple of aggressive T20 players and a lot will depend on how those players deliver on the match-day. South Africa played a three-match series here in West Indies a couple of months ago which should help them a lot. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, are a little too over-reliant on Chamari Atapaththu. Considering the teams on paper, their balance, and form, South Africa with their recent experience of playing here go in as favorites to emerge on top in the upcoming match.
