South Africa vs Sri Lanka, 2nd T20I
March 22, 2019
Supersport Park, Centurion

Preview

After nearly messing up a regulation run chase in the first T20I and then redeeming themselves with a grand super over, South Africa let go soft a slew of stars and welcome a few new faces to the setup.

With South Africa sporting a depleted side, Lanka will look to grab a win at Centurion on a high scoring wicket.

Conditions: High-scoring wicket with plenty of runs on offer.
