The 5th match of the Road Safety World Series T20 2020 will be played between Sri Lanka Legends and South Africa Legends at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai.


South Africa had an impressive start to their Road Safety World Series campaign with a six-wicket victory over West Indies Legends. First up, they set it up with the ball, especially Paul Harris, who limited the damage and restricted West Indies Legends to just 143 from their 20 overs.

Johan van der Wath was also exceptional without getting a lot of wickets but gave away just 14 runs from his 4 overs and did not allow the West Indian Legend batters to get away.

In reply, the Proteas Legends did not have a great start with openers Herschelle Gibbs and Morne van Wyk getting dismissed within the first 20 deliveries. However, it was all-rounders Jonty Rhodes and Albie Morkel who scored unbeaten half-centuries to get the team to a six-wicket victory.

They will take on Sri Lanka who have already played two games. The team won its first game by 7 runs against Australia Legends while losing the next one against India legends by 5 wickets.

Romesh Kaluwitharana and Chamara Kapugedera are the top scorers for them, both scoring 51 runs from two innings, but Kapugedera has a better strike rate.

Among the bowlers Rangana Herath and Tillakaratne Dilshan have picked three wickets each.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

South Africa Legends - Herschelle Gibbs, Morne van Wyk (wk), Jacques Rudolph, Martin van Jaarsveld, Jonty Rhodes (c), Andrew Hall, Albie Morkel, Ryan McLaren, Garnett Kruger, Johan van der Wath, Paul Harris

Sri Lanka Legends - Marvan Atapattu, Tillakaratne Dilshan (c), Upul Chandana, Chaminda Vaas, Farveez Maharoof, Rangana Herath, Chamara Kapugedera, Thilan Thushara, Ajantha Mendis, Romesh Kaluwitharana (wk), Sachithra Senanayake
