SL vs SA Tips, Stats & Team for Today Match Prediction
Match: SL vs SA ODI Match Prediction
Time: 07 September, 02:30 AM (IST)
Venue: R. Premadasa Stadium – Colombo, Sri Lanka
- 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.
Live Streaming: The match can be watched live on the Sony Sports Network in India and on Super Sports in South Africa.
Weather & 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.
Both teams have chosen to bat first after winning the toss in this series so far. Whoever calls correctly will opt to bat in this ODI.

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.
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.
Who will win today match: SL vs SA ODI Match Match Fantasy Team
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.
SL Key Players:
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.
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.
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.
SA Key Players:
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.
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.
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.
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.

Top Team Batsmens:
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.
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.
