3 rd ODI Sri Lanka vs South Africa Preview:Playing XI for the match

South Africans were able to show up with a very good performance in both ODI matches after a very poor show in the Test series.

But still being bowled out for 250 runs,it was more of a Lankan's poor batting show that helped South Africans get an easy win in the second ODI and South Africa can't surely be happy about their batting performance with World Cup coming up.

In Sri Lanka's point of view it was more over nothing performance by them so far in the series and Lankan's will surely have to strengthen their batting line up by removing half players like Thisara perera from top 7 and by putting up new opening pair to get them a good start.

As we expect the possible playing XI for Lankan's can be as follows;

1.Avishka Fernando
2.Upul Tharanga
3.Kusal Janith
4.Oshada Fernando
5.Kusal Mendis
6.Dananjaya De Silva
7.Kamindu Mendis
8.Thisara Perera
9.Isuru Udana
10.Akila Dananjaya
11.Lasith Malinga

Sri Lanka strictly need 7 proper Batsmen in the side and Thisara and Isuru can be used as power hitters in the side.Also they will have 3 pacers and 3 spinners in the team if they can go with this combination.

In other side Lots of changes can't be expected in South African line up and they will go again with only 5 specialist Batsmen .Possible playing XI for South Africa is as follows;

1.Quinton de Kock
2.Reeza Hendricks
3.Faf Du Plesis
5.David Miller
7.Wiann Mulder
8.Kagiso Rabada
9.Anrich Nortje
10.Lungi Ngidi
11.Imran Tahir
