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.
