T20 World Cup 2021: South Africa vs Sri Lanka Betting Tips and Dream11 Team

South Africa vs Sri Lanka Preview 

Both Sri Lanka and South Africa will be looking to strengthen their chances of making it to the semifinals as they lock horns against each other in Sharjah on Saturday. 

South Africa are coming into this match on the back of a comprehensive eight-wicket win against West Indies whereas Sri Lanka succumbed to a loss against Australia. Both sides have one win to their names after playing two matches each, but South Africa have a far better NRR and that’s why Sri Lanka have a lot of catching up to do.

The Proteas are a bit dependent on the exploits of their top-order. They are lucky they cruised to a win in the last match, even in the absence of Quinton de Kock, who pulled out of the match refusing to take a knee. That issue is sorted out now and he is all set to play. Their bowling has been good, though. They made Australia earn each of their runs while defending a low total and thus they are expected to continue their good performance here.

As far as Sri Lanka go, they won the first match against Bangladesh riding on fifties from Charith Asalanka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa. They did well in the second match as well but it didn’t turn out to be enough to defeat the mighty Aussies. Their spin-bowling duo of Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana is going to play a key role in this match as the struggles of the South African batters against spinners are well documented. Toss has played a major factor in this tournament and it is expected to play an equally big role today. The chasing team will have the advantage in this match.


Probable Playing XI 

South Africa

Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Reeza Hendricks, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi

Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Perera (wk), Charith Asalanka, Avishka Fernando, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva, Dasun Shanaka (c), Chamika Karunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara, Maheesh Theekshana


South Africa vs Sri Lanka Betting Tips

Quinton de Kock to be the top scorer for South Africa – 2/1 @ betway

De Kock is South Africa’s most experienced batter in this T20 World Cup. He has amassed 1765 runs in T20Is at an average of 34.60 and strike-rate of 135.66. He will have a key role to play against Sri Lanka’s wrist-spinners.

Charith Asalanka to be the highest scorer for Sri Lanka – 13/5 @Betway 

Asalanka played a match-winning knock of 80*(49) in the match against Bangladesh and followed that up with yet another classy 35(27) against Australia. He is in good form and is expected to carry that forward. 

Anrich Nortje to be the highest wicket-taker for South Africa – 2/1 @bet365

Nortje was in very good form in the IPL and has carried that form forward into this T20 World Cup as well. In the two matches so far, Nortje has claimed three wickets at an excellent economy rate of 4.37.

Maheesh Theekshana to be the top wicket-taker for Sri Lanka – 3/1 @bet365

Theekshana has picked up eight wickets in this tournament so far, going at an excellent economy rate of 5.54. The South African batters will find it difficult to play him today.
