South Africa vs Sri Lanka: Fallen Giants Look for a Lift

In terms of World Cups, this rivalry is best remembered for South Africa’s surprising miscalculation of the target based on the Duckworth-Lewis rule on home soil in 2003, when a tie knocked them out of the tournament. Sri Lanka have won the T20 World Cup once (2014) and reached two other finals, while South Africa have never gone beyond the semi-finals. This contest, being played in the UAE, is of huge importance in a group including three other teams that have reached at least one final.

Sri Lanka started their Super-12 campaign with a superb win against Bangladesh, while South Africa faced defeat against Australia, showing the lack of depth in their batting. This South Africa-Sri Lanka cricket match will likely decide South Africa’s semi-final fate, with England, Australia, the West Indies and Bangladesh also pushing to advance.

Temba Bavuma: South Africa Captain

For a long time, Bavuma was viewed only as a Test player. But when given chances in ODIs and T20Is, he grabbed the opportunities with both hands. He had to bide his time for more than half a decade, until the retirement of AB de Villiers from international cricket. After Faf du Plessis stepped down from captaincy, Bavuma has matured both as a batter and a leader. With transformation and racial quotas still such a touchy topic in South Africa, both his captaincy and form will come under intense scrutiny.

Dasun Shanaka: Sri Lanka Captain

A decade or so ago, Shanaka would have struggled to get into the Sri Lanka team. It’s a reflection of how badly Sri Lankan cricket’s fortunes have declined that they have as a captain a man with a single 5-wicket haul and no centuries after 93 international matches. But since the retirements of Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene more than half a decade ago, captains and coaches have come and gone as Sri Lanka cricket’s stock has plummeted.
