With the bat, Sri Lanka has slightly less quality than they do with the ball. Their top-rated batter is Angelo Matthews who is ranked at number 40 in the world. Gunathilaka is ranked 49th and Kusal Mendis is 50th.

This team would really benefit from 1 top 20 players in the lineup to build the top order around. A couple of the players have good potential to improve over time.

Sri Lanka vs South Africa Match Prediction

This always looked like it would be a good battle between these teams on the Bangladesh wickets. South Africa is, without doubt, the stronger team but Sri Lanka performed well in the opening match. This should be another tight match to call.

Predicted result: South Africa to win in a close game.

The Cricketics team has looked at the stats and form of both sides and still thinks South Africa should edge Sri Lanka to tie the series 1-1.
