Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: Sri Lanka vs South Africa – 2nd T20I – 12th September
The 2nd T20I of the South Africa Tour of Sri Lanka 2021 will take place between Sri Lanka and South Africa at the R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.
Current Form Sri Lanka and South Africa:
South Africa beat Sri Lanka in the first T20I by 28 runs.
Batting first, South Africa put on an over par total of 163 for 5 in 20 overs. The top order performed superbly for the Proteas. Quinton de Kock made 36 off 32 balls while Reeza Hendricks played an important part with his innings of 38. The game changer was however Aiden Markram as he smashed 48 runs at a quick pace to turn things around. On the back of his effort, South Africa crossed the 160 run mark.
Chasing 163, Sri Lanka lost too many wickets early on and were reduced to 34 for 2 in the 7th over. Keshav Maharaj bowled very steady lines and did not allow any room for the batsmen to free their arms. He gave away only 19 runs during his spell of 4 overs. Dinesh Chandiman played a phenomenal unbeaten knock of 66 in 54 balls but failed to take his team over the line. He could not find apt support in the middle as wickets kept falling at wrong times for Sri Lanka. In the end, they fell short by 28 runs.
