South Africa vs. Sri Lanka: Third ODI preview

Match Details:
South Africa vs Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI, March 10, 2019
Kingsmead, Durban

Preview

South Africa return to the venue where Kusal Perera humiliated them in the Test series and have a shaky record at Durban to overcome. Know as the best place for visiting Asian teams in South Africa, Durban is where the Lankans will hope to make a comeback in the series. They were humbled in both the ODIs and have struggled to carry forward the momentum from the Tests with the batsmen in particular in focus after a poor outing in the previous game on a belter at Centurion.

That Durban will spin should encourage the Lankans who might ponder bringing back Sandakan for this encounter. South Africa will want to try Shamsi and might opt to rest Rabada or Ngidi. Steyn is also set to make his first appearance in the ODI series while the batting is likely to remain the same.

Conditions: Assistance for spinners expected although the pitch could be a belter once settled down.

De Kock comes off the back of a terrific knock at Centurion and Johannesburg. The wicket-keeper batsman has been among the few bright spots for the Proteas in the batting line-up. He is likely to avenge for missing out on a century last match and should be a must pick in your fantasy side.

Batsman:  Faf du Plessis (10.5 credits)

The South African skipper has been in rip-roaring form
