The mega tournament that we get to see only once in 4 years is finally here and is being played in England & Wales. Unlike previous world cups, this WC is being played in the round-robin format and will watch the match between the host England and the Kiwis at Riverside Ground.
Pitch Report & Toss Prediction:
Both teams have a very balanced side and could see a high scoring match in this contest between Sri lanka and South Africa. The team batting first will definitely have an advantage on this pitch. A target nearing 350 could be easily achievable.
Sri Lanka Team News;
Sri Lanka is a strong side with experienced players like Angelo Mathews, Thisera and Malinga. They are always a threat when it comes to their bowling attack. We will see Sri Lanka under a new skipper. His previous performance in the Last ODI matches has been very consistent.
SA Team News:
We will be seeing Tahir and JP Duminy playing their last World cup as they will be retiring after the tournament. Imran Tahir and Kagiso Rabada combined took 51 wickets in the ipl and will form a dangerous bowling attack. The classic opening pair of Hashim Amla and Quinton De Kock are likely to cause havoc.
Our Cricket Match Prediction:
In this match we predict South Africa to have an upper hand. They have a much more balanced side than the Lanka’s and will easily be successful in this contest.
