Match Details

South Africa versus Sri Lanka, first T20I

19 March 2019, 21:30 IST

Newlands, Cape Town


Encompassed by slopes, Newlands is a standout amongst the most beautiful grounds in South Africa. It can house 25,000 onlookers, and it was likewise the scene for the fifth ODI between played between the two countries a week ago.

The Newlands pitch can give some mean skip to quick bowlers, but at the same time is required to help the spinners with some turn later on in the match. As the records recommend, sides that bat initially improve in Cape Town than the individuals who pursue.


South Africa moved beyond the mortification of losing the Test arrangement to Sri Lanka by beating them reasonable and square in the ODI arrangement. The hosts were totally predominant, declining to offer the Lankans a bit of leeway, and wound up finishing the 5-0 whitewash. Quinton de Kock was casted a ballot as the man of the arrangement for his immensely predictable exhibitions.

It's a given that Sri Lanka have a great deal to do on the off chance that they want to get back on level terms in the T20I arrangement. Their best request has reliably failed to meet expectations in the restricted overs coordinates up until now, and the general camaraderie looks low as well.

My Dream XI


Quinton de Kock was casted a ballot the man of the arrangement for the ODIs, having scored brisk keeps running in almost every match. The South African wicketkeeper-batsman is playing at an extremely abnormal state at the present time, and is an absolute necessity pick.


Avishka Fernando had his scoring abuses cut off in the ODI arrangement as he put in a string of baffling exhibitions. He will take a gander at the T20I arrangement to persuade the selectors of his significance to the Lankan lineup at the World Cup.

Faf du Plessis was the second best South African batsman all through the ODI arrangement after De Kock. The Proteas captain won't be a piece of the squad for the last two T20Is, and will be anxious to approve a decent note.

Rassie van der Dussen from South Africa will be the third batsmen in the dream11 side.


Dhananjaya de Silva couldn't change the course of the last ODI, either with the bat or the ball. The T20I arrangement will furnish him with another chance to make his imprint and impact the procedures.

Thisara Perera is another magnificent all-rounder in the Lankan outfit who did not have as extraordinary an ODI arrangement as he would've preferred. In any case, that doesn't change the way that he can choose amusements all alone.

Jean-Paul Duminy has been a standout amongst the best all-rounder in the game in the course of the most recent decade, and he as of late came back to the Proteas side after a long nonattendance. Duminy will be the captain in the second and third T20Is once Du Plessis leaves.


Lasith Malinga got the critical wicket of De Kock in the fifth ODI. Notwithstanding his age, the Lankan captain will be edgy to indicate everybody why he has been a standout amongst the best bowlers on the planet throughout the most recent 10 years, and that he could at present be a danger in the up and coming World Cup.

Imran Tahir was extraordinary in the ODI arrangement, capably supplementing the pacy and deadly South African crease unit. Tahir showed his turn and unconventionality and grabbed essential wickets en route.

Kagiso Rabada will leave after the first T20I alongside Imran Tahir, Du Plessis, De Kock and Tahir. He will be quick to create another incredible execution in an arrangement where he has awed as of now. He will be very much upheld by Lungi Ngidi.

Commander and bad habit skipper: Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock

Different alternatives: Imran Tahir and Kagiso Rabada

Player to keep an eye out for: Jean-Paul Duminy

The obligation of driving the South African side will fall on Duminy's shoulders once Du Plessis leaves in the following amusement. A cleaned all-rounder, Duminy is more than equipped for doing that job; he will need to utilize the first T20I as a stage to concrete his power in the side.
