SL vs SA 2nd T20I, Live Sri Lanka vs South Africa 12 Sep 2021

Live Sri Lanka vs South Africa 12 Sep 2021A T20 World Cup is around the corner. For Sri Lanka, it begins with qualifiers that kick off approximately six weeks from now – so get your fingers crossed and pray to whichever God you believe in because this could be their time! But if they don’t make it through those initial stages then there’s still South Africa who go straight into the main event without having played any preliminary rounds; all we need do as fans of cricketing drama (and winners!) is wait about a week later…

A few days ago I read an article discussing which country would qualify fastest out 10 teams taking part at next month’s Cricket World Cup: India or Pakistan?

Either way, this is the lead-in – the phase in which teams look to tighten up their combinations, get key players into form, and battle-test their match-ups and strategies. South Africa’s eight T20I wins to their seven losses this year suggest they are closer to figuring out a good game plan than Sri Lanka, who have lost six and won only three (two of those wins were against a severely depleted second-string India side).

Sri Lanka vs South Africa live score CRICKET

It’s no surprise that South Africa is one of the top teams in international T20 cricket. This year, they defeated Ireland and West Indies to take home wins from their respective series against those nations- all while boasting Aiden Markram at number 4 for their batting order! And what about Tabraiz Shamsi? With 24 wickets so far this summer (and only 5 victims per match), it would be tough on any team not to have someone capable enough as a counterpart with him on your side – which makes Sri Lanka an opponent worth concerning yourself over before entering into battle against them next month
Sri Lanka will feel they have some momentum after their ODI victory, but their T20I ranking of ninth is deserved – this is the format in which they have struggled most over the past few years. They will hope that the confidence gained from two consecutive series victories in a row (the first being that T20I series win over a depleted India), and familiarity with the conditions – which again are expected to be spin-friendly – can help elevate them to South Africa’s level.

In the spotlight

Mahesh Theekshana’s Sri Lanka debut was one to remember. On Tuesday, he unveiled an Ajantha Mendis of sorts with his googly and carrom ball that would make any bowler proud- but more importantly claimed four wickets! But those figures came on a deck that offered plenty in-the-way turns; it will be interesting how he fares against better batsmen so soon into his career Can he be as effective on less spin-friendly surfaces? And now that South Africa has had a chance to analyze footage, how much of his mystery will Theekshana retain?

2nd T20I, Sri Lanka vs South Africa

In 14 bowling innings this year, only once has Tabraiz Shamsi gone wicketless. Of those innings, only in one – when Babar Azam hit full tilt in Centurion – did Shamsi go at more than eight an over. These are not just good statistics, they are performances that have elevated Shamsi to the top of the T20 rankings, one place above Wanindu Hasaranga from the opposition. Having already taken eight wickets in the ODIs, the T20s look set to see more Shamsi magic. There will be no bowler Sri Lanka will spend more prep time working out how to defuse.

Pitch and conditions

Expect another turning track. With showers frequently rolling through Colombo, rain interruptions are on the card too.

Team news

Kusal Perera remains unavailable for the match given his lack of cardio fitness following his bout with Covid. Dinesh Chandimal will likely keep wickets and open the batting. Kamindu Mendis will probably stat at No. 3, given his excellent T20 domestic form recently. Sri Lanka may think about bringing in off-spinning allrounder Ramesh Mendis to bolster the lower middle order, too.
Sri Lanka (possible): 1 Avishka Fernando, 2 Dinesh Chandimal (wk), 3 Kamindu Mendis, 4 Dhananjaya de Silva, 5 Charith Asalanka, 6 Dasun Shanaka (capt.), 7 Wanindu Hasaranga, 8 Ramesh Mendis, 9 Chamika Karunaratne, 10 Dushmantha Chameera, 11 Mahesh Theekshana
Quinton de Kock is set to play his first match of the tour and David Miller is available after recovering from a hamstring strain. Lungi Ngidi, though, won’t be, as he has flown straight to the IPL. Keshav Maharaj will captain the side.
South Africa (possible): 1 Janneman Malan, 2 Reeza Hendricks, 3 Aiden Markram, 4 David Miller, 5 Rassie van der Dussen, 6 Quinton de Kock (wk), 7 Wiaan Mulder, 8 George Linde, 9 Keshav Maharaj (capt.), 10 Kagiso Rabada, 11 Tabraiz Shamsi

Quotes

“Performance is everything, so we want to come here and win the series, to go to the World Cup with a log of confidence. What we’ve gone through in the last couple of months has been huge stepping stones for our T20 team. Beating West Indies – a lot of people thought we were underdogs. We won 3-2. A lot of confidence has been taken from that.”
