-posted on May 24, 2019

Match Description :


The second Warm-up match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between South Africa and Sri Lanka.
Team News:

  • Both teams have already announced their 15-man squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
  • Sri Lanka have dropped former skipper Dinesh Chandimal and given the captaincy reigns to Dimuth Karunaratne who led Sri Lanka to a historic away Test series win over South Africa.
  • However, the experienced all-rounder who has had his struggles with injuries is still in the squad.
  • Proteas pacer Anrich Nortje who was picked in the initial World Cup squad will not feature due to injury.
  • Bowling all-rounder Chris Morris has been named as his replacement.
  • Ottis Gibson the South African coach has assured that the injured bowling duo of Kagiso Rabada and Dale Steyn will recover before the event starts.
  • Angelo Mathews is the most skilled and experienced batsmen and has just returned to the lineup.
  • Malinga is the current Sri Lankan lineup’s star player. He is one of the most prominent ODI bowlers and has a total of 322 wickets from 218 matches so far in his career.
  • The middle order, powered by Karunaratne and Mendis looked very stable in the series against Scotland.
  • Hashim Amla is a vulnerable pick. He hasn’t been in form for the past couple of matches and hopefully, he can return back into form before the official games begin.

    Pitch condition :

    Sophia Gardens in Cardiff also has a lot of runs in it. The short straight boundaries add to the misery of the bowlers. As Cardiff is an open ground, the breeze blowing around could make a difference in shot making and line to be preferred by the pacers.
