SL vs RSA Betting Tips

  • Charith Asalanka has been Sri Lanka’s most consistent batsman in the series with scores of 72 and 77. He is a good bet for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer in this ODI. Wanindu Hasaranga has taken a wicket in both games in the series and is worth backing as Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Janneman Malan hit 121 in Saturday’s game and averages 104.50 in ODI cricket. He is an excellent tip for South Africa’s highest run scorer in this clash. With the ball, Tabraiz Shamsi took 5-49 in the second ODI and is our recommendation for South Africa’s top wicket taker in this final ODI.
  • We expect the two centurions from the series to go head to head in the series. Avishka Fernando has 126 runs over both games with Janneman Malan on 144. We are backing Malan to take the Player of The Match Award in this match.

Sri Lanka vs South Africa 3rd ODI Prediction & Betting Tips

The final and decisive ODI between Sri Lanka and South Africa takes place at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Tuesday afternoon. The series is level at 1-1 after Sri Lanka won the opening game by 14 runs before South Africa fought back with a 67 run DLS victory in the second ODI. Read on as we preview this final ODI. The game begins at 14:30 local time.

Although disappointed to lose the second ODI, Sri Lanka will be pleased to still be in the series with one game to play. With Fernando and Asalanka in the runs, there is the prospect of hitting a large team total.

South Africa will have their tails up after a comprehensive win on Saturday. They had five separate wicket takers and looked like a team playing as a tight knit unit.

SL vs SA Pitch Report

300 remains the par score in Colombo with the series proving that you need a centurion on your team to go near that figure.

Weather Report

Thunderstorms earlier in the day should give way to partly cloudy conditions with a high of 28 degrees in Colombo.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

After investing in the players in the opening games, it makes sense for Sri Lanka to keep faith with the same XI in this final ODI. Apart from Charith Asalanka’s 77 runs, only two other batters went beyond 12 and Sri Lanka must get more significant contributions to give themselves the best chance.

SL Key Players

  • Avishka Fernando - Sri Lanka’s opener was dismissed in the 5th over of Saturday’s game. However, he is a crucial wicket for South Africa and he has already hit a century in the series.
  • Charith Asalanka - the middle order batsman only made his international debut earlier this year but he already looks like he will be a permanent fixture across all formats for years to come with his consistent scores.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga - the spinner was upstaged by South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi in the second ODI but will hope for more runs on the board from his teammates so he can fully show his talents.

SL Team Form

Saturday’s defeat was clearly a setback but the taste of victory is still a recent one and the players’ confidence will not have been hit too hard.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Avishka Fernando, Minod Bhanuka (wk), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Akila Dhananjaya, Dushmantha Chameera, Praveen Jayawickrama

SL vs RSA Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Heinrich Klaasen (9) will be our wicket-keeper. He has made 79 runs in the series, taken 4 catches and made 1 stumping.

  • Batsmen

    Rassie van der Dussen (9.5), Avishka Fernando (9.5) and Aiden Markram (9.5), Charith Asalanka (9) and Janneman Malan (8.5) are our batsmen. All five batters have made good contributions in the series so far.

  • All-rounders

    Wanindu Hasaranga (9.5) and Dhananjaya de Silva (9) will be our all rounders. Hasaranaga has taken a wicket in both games but the South African batters do not look comfortable playing his spin.

  • Bowlers

    Kagiso Rabada (9), Tabraiz Shamsi (8.5) and Chamika Karunaratne (8.5) will be our bowlers. Shamsi was the top bowler across both sides in the second ODI.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Janneman Malan will be captain, Charith Asalanka his deputy

SL vs SA Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Rassie van der Dussen, Avishka Fernando, Aiden Markram, Charith Asalanka (vc), Janneman Malan (c)

  • All Rounder:Wanindu Hasaranga, Dhananjaya de Silva

  • Wicket Keeper:Heinrich Klaasen

  • Bowler:Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Chamika Karunaratne

Sri Lanka vs South Africa Match Prediction

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

Captain Temba Bavuma missed Saturday’s game with a fractured thumb and will also sit out the final ODI with Keshav Maharaj leading the side. Plenty of senior players stood up in the second game and they will be confident of taking the series with the same XI.

SA Key Players

  • Janneman Malan - The opening batter has played in 9 ODIs and already has centuries against Australia, Ireland and Sri Lanka to his name with half-centuries against Pakistan and Ireland.
  • Rassie van der Dussen - With Temba Bavuma ruled out, van der Dussen’s anchor role becomes even more important in the ODI side.
  • Tabraiz Shamsi - The left-arm wrist spinner took 1-55 in the opening game but followed up with 5-49 on Saturday. Those wounds will be very raw in the minds of the Sri Lanka batting line-up

SA Team Form

The win in the second ODI makes South Africa’s recent form look a lot healthier. Two wins from their last three games with the latest victory all the more impressive under a replacement captain.

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Wiaan Mulder, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj (c), George Linde, Tabraiz Shamsi

Sri Lanka vs South Africa 3rd ODI Top Team Batsmen

Avishka Fernando, Dhananjaya de Silva and Charith Asalanka are our tips to be the top batsmen for Sri Lanka. Asalanka has hit 15 boundaries in the series.

We are backing Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram and Rassie van der Dussen with the bat for South Africa. Malan is very hard to dislodge at the top of the order and scores centuries for fun.

Sri Lanka vs South Africa 3rd ODI Top Team Bowlers

Dushmantha Chameera, Wanindu Hasaranga and Praveen Jayawickrama are the top bowlers for Sri Lanka. Hasaranga is always treated with respect by South Africa’s batters but they may need to take more risks against him in this ODI.

Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj are our recommendations with the ball for South Africa. Shamsi took a 5-wicket haul on Saturday and will be itching to go again in this game.

🏆 Sri Lanka vs South Africa Prediction

This series has see-sawed from one team to the other with South Africa responding strongly on Saturday after the defeat on Thursday. As a result, this should be an excellent series finale. We are predicting South Africa to have too much quality in batting and bowling and to win the last ODI.
