Overall, the pitch looks balances as it will help to the batsman as well as bowlers. But in the last five matches, the average score was a bit on the lower side with the numbers around 279. Both the teams have to show their talent as pitch is in favour of both, batsman and bowler. Toss will be crucial so hopefully toss winning team will choose fielding first.
Sri Lanka team’s confidence is high after conquering England at the Headingley in Leeds. But now all the matches of Sri Lanka is very crucial. They do not want to take any chance otherwise they will not be qualified in semi-final. Right now Sri Lankan team stands in number 7. They may not want to change their winning combination. Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera have done well at the top of the order, having scored 180 and 161 runs each. The duo needs to be on top of their game. Avishka Fernando looked in great touch in the last match after the injury layoff. With scores of 30 and 46, Kusal Mendis has looked to get back his rhythm.
Angelo Mathews also return in form. Mathews got a well-scored 85 in the last game. Dhananjaya de Silva is slowly starting to show all-round performances. Thisara Perera has been a bit of a disappointment, but he remains an important member of the team. The Lankans will again look up to Lasith Malinga to deliver the goods. Isuru Udana and Nuwan Pradeep need to play their roles as well.

This time also, the journey of world cup is not good for South Africa. They are in number 9 position and already disqualified for semi-final. They would want to give chances to their benched players. Aiden Markram hasn’t tasted much success, having scored runs at an average of 21.20 and JP Duminy may get a chance in his place. Rabada hasn’t performed well till time. Hashim Amla has a strike-rate of under 60 and that shows the travails he has had in the tournament. Quinton de Kock started decently but is a bit short of runs off late. Faf du Plessis is also struggling with his performance. Rassie van der Dussen has proved his performance and he scored 216 runs at an average of 54. In the bowling department, Imran Tahir has been the standout, having picked up 10 wickets.
