Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
South Africa Legends won their campaign opener against West Indies convincingly by a margin of 6 wickets. Albie Morkel and Jonty Rhodes turned out to be the match winners for their side, who scored brilliant fifties. They would be eager to continue with the same form against Sri Lanka.
South Africa will also expect that their top player Herschelle Gibbs would come out with a breakthrough knock, who got out in the first game after scoring only a run. Also, their bowling unit did an amazing job as they restricted their opponents on a nominal score. Paul Harris managed to grab a three-fer for his team in that match.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka Legends got off to a great start to their tournament with a win but they suffered a defeat in their previous outing against the hosts India. However, their side looks balanced with the likes Tillakaratne Dilshan, Marvan Atapattu, who can demolish any strong bowling line-up. And, the team will be expecting their players to notch some brilliance on the field that can bring them back on the winning track.
The weather forecast says that there are no chances of rain on the matchday and the temperature will be a bit on a cooler side. The wind will be blowing at a rate of 20 to 24 km/hr whereas the temperature will deviate between 22 to 28 Degree Celsius during the match time according to Accuweather.
The track at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy is expected to go in favour of the batsmen. This ground has hosted a total of two games in which the side batting first have ended up on the losing end. The same is expected in the next match between South Africa and Sri Lanka.
