Full Details of Match
The 35th match of men cricket world cup is to be played between Sri Lanka and South Africa at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street. We are now at a stage where every team will be looking to confirming their spots for semis and hopefully we get to watch a good match.
South Africa’s chances in the world cup are merely gone. They are now left with 2 matches only with only one win in their 7 matches. There was a lot of expectations from this side but they have disappointed everyone. South Africans will try to forget what has happened to them and will look forward to the remaining two games.
South Africa’s performance is below par as no batsman has managed to reach double figures. Only Van Der Dussen and Imran Tahir have advanced their reputations. Both openers Hashim Amla and Quinton de cock are not able to give South Africa a good start while their middle-order batsman is not building partnerships and lost wickets at regular intervals. They lacked intent very much to win the games. Van der Dussen has performed well in this world cup. In the last match against Pakistan, he played a brilliant knock while others were struggling against Pakistan strong bowling line up.
South Africa’s bowling has always been their strength. They have big names in their team like Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Chris Morris and Imran Tahir. They were not able to pick wickets which were a major cause for their loss. Only Imran Tahir looked very positive and their main weapon for taking wickets. Though South Africa’s chances are over in this world cup they will push themselves hard to win those two matches to regain their respect.
Sri Lanka is speeding up in this world cup at the right time. Lasith Malinga’s form has come back at the right time for them. He helped Sri Lanka to win against mighty England by taking 4 wickets and conceded only 43 runs in his 10 overs quota. He was absolutely brilliant that day. Angelo Mathew also performed very well by scoring 85 runs and helped his team to reach a good total to defend.
Sri Lanka chances are still there to qualify for the semi-finals and will try very hard to beat South Africa. They will be looking to win their last 3 and can end up on 12 points which increases their chances into the semis.
