Recent Match Report - Sri Lanka vs South Africa 1st


Sri Lanka won 2-0 on last Test tour of South Africa but face stiff test on Highveld

Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bat first against South Africa

Wanindu Hasaranga, the legspinning allrounder, will debut for Sri Lanka, as the visitors chose to bat first at Centurion. Lutho Sipamla, the 22-year-old fast bowler, also makes his Test debut for South Africa.

On match day, the pitch turned up less green than expected, which is perhaps what prompted captain Dimuth Karunaratne to make what is a highly unusual choice for a Sri Lanka captain in South Africa. With Hasaranga in the side, though, Sri Lanka have batting down to No. 8. His inclusion means there is no place in the side for left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldeniya.

Also missing for Sri Lanka is senior fast bowler Suranga Lakmal, who is unavailable due to a hamstring injury. He is replaced by right-arm seam bowler Kasun Rajitha, while Vishwa Fernando and Lahiru Kumara are also in the XI. Dasun Shanaka, the batting allrounder, provides another seam option.
