Series win in sight for Sri Lanka in second ODI
A win in the second ODI not only gives Sri Lanka the series win but would help them leapfrog Ireland, West Indies and Pakistan to the fifth spot on the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League (CWCSL) Table.
The hosts have started to gather some momentum in white-ball cricket and will be hoping to carry it forward into the T20I series and then into the Round 1 of the T20 World Cup.
South Africa, on the other hand, will be ruing the missed opportunities from the first ODI, with the dropped catches and their batting at death effectively costing them the game.
Currently placed 11th in the CWCSL table with 24 points, the Proteas will hope they can make a comeback in the next game and force the series into a decider.
