South Africa face Sri Lanka today, while the West Indies will start their run-chase against Australia if the weather permits. South Africa will be very wary of the Sri Lankan spinners. On the other side, the southpaw-dominated Lankan top order will be hoping to tackle Pollock and Co. the way Australia did. However, for that someone will need to fire.
From now on we shall try to bring you a further analysis than just predictions, time permitting that is. Mathew feels teams are perhaps reading a bit too much into Australia’s recent unsuccessful total defences and the way Hayden is going, it may not be a good idea to put them in first on good tracks.
Here’s our prediction for today.
South Africa v/s Sri Lanka
AKG: South Africa
MJV: Sri Lanka
Match starts 1900 IST on SET MAX (English) and SAB TV (Hindi).
