LIVE ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Score Updates: South Africa vs. Sri Lanka
Dasun Shanaka, the captain of Sri Lanka, won the toss and chose to bowl when they faced South Africa on October 7. The match will be played in Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium. While Sri Lanka has three fast bowlers and the same number of all-rounders as South Africa, South Africa is fielding four pacers and one specialist spinner in Keshav Maharaj.
Despite being one of the favorites in every competition they play in, the Proteas have yet to win the World Cup, which Sri Lanka won in 1996.
80 One-Day Internationals (ODI) have been played between South Africa and Sri Lanka, with the Proteas winning 45 and the Lankans winning 33. With four victories out of the six games played so far in the ICC World Cup, South Africa has a significantly superior record.
It will be their first encounter, and it will happen at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium. The last time the South African team came to play here, they were bowled out for 99. In five meetings at this location, Sri Lanka has only had one victory.
The pitch in Delhi is ideal for batters and has small borders that let them score more points. Additionally, as the game goes on, spinners may benefit greatly from the dry pitch. The average first-inning score on this field is 230. Teams batting second have had success on this field with a 60% winning percentage.
There is little chance of rain, according to the forecast for Delhi. A sunny day with a clear sky and about 45% humidity is what AccuWeather predicts, making it perfect for playing.
