South Africa vs Sri Lanka

While Sri Lanka pulled off a surprise 2-0 victory in the Test series, South Africa bounced back to clinch the ODI series 5-0. Now it’s time for the final leg of the tour as the T20 series kicks off with the first game at the Newlands, Cape Town on Tuesday. Keep reading to find out South Africa vs Sri Lanka 1st T20 Match Prediction.

The horror of Test loss didn’t haunt the hosts as they recovered quickly in the ODIs. The gap between the two sides in the 50-over format was exposed as the visitors were not even close to victory in any of the 5 games. It was as comprehensive as it gets for the hosts who piled on the misery of Sri Lanka.

As the T20s begin, it’s a chance for the visitors to redeem themselves in white ball cricket. However, it’s not going to be easy. Historically, these two teams have been equally dominant on each other. They have won 5 games apiece in head to head contests. But at this moment, the hosts seem much stronger.
