South Africa vs Sri Lanka WC Preview
The teams have similarities lost two games each in the League phase that have had a more or less even record against each other in the last two years and the two are avidly nervous before the big game. They also have differences Sri Lanka has a history of doing well in the competitions of the World Cup 2015 while South Africa are trying to break new ground.
The teams are blessed with experienced batters who can deliver on the big stage but with a bowling attack more balanced South Africa can imagine of achieving that dream of winning for the first time in a World Cup playoff game and then go to Auckland for the semifinal. Sri Lanka is yet to find a bowling combination that can stop determined and talented teams.The other important thing left to realize his passionate dream of winning a game by knockout in the world Cricket Tournament is Sri Lanka batting especially if the Angelo Matthews team takes first.
Incredible streak of Kumar Sangakkara has captured him a great tournament of 496 runs including four centuries from six League matches while opener Tillakaratne Dilshan to just five runs shy of 400 racing brand. Lahiru Thirimanne has contributed to the higher order Sri Lanka looking for the most productive in the tournament. Sri Lanka has the experience of winning important matches but cannot forget that their bowling unit has not been his strong point. Paceman Lasith Malinga was cautiously in his return from ankle surgery and the team is still sweating on the return of left arm spinner Rangana Herath finger of split which needed stitches and kept him out of the final two matches.
With a set of ictus jugadores that can win games on his own South Africa will have Hashim Amla playing an anchoring effort. Batters in the tournament AB de Villiers are the only one that in addition Sangakkara have recorded more than 400 races so far. South Africa batsmen were not at the height when it pursues objectives set by the India and Pakistan.
Speaking of losses defeats Sri Lanka by New Zealand and Australia co host showed their vulnerabilities also. As they prepare for battle Wednesday to SCG whose tracks in three World Cup matches have been rather slow Sri Lanka and South Africa both be looking to avoid making mistakes under pressure.
Fans that crowded at the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground will have to wait a wonder with the team that has their nerves to get his nose in front. It would be a travesty if wins the sweepstakes has a direct influence on the outcome of the game. That certainly was the case when South Africa beat the West Indies and Sri Lanka chased a high score for Australia in place.
England broke the trend by winning after the election of the first field but against Afghanistan. Only a Herculean effort of bowling in the evening can ensure that replication on Wednesday. South Africa is better equipped to achieve that of Sri Lanka. They opted not to train on Tuesday wanting to keep your mind fresh.
But the question remains contentious would have to win South Africa will have the strength to dominate his burning desire to not lose again in the playoff?
