Final Thoughts

South African’s have not lost a single match in their past 11 encounters (5 at home, 4 at away and 2 at neutral venues) against Sri Lanka. They may find solace that their most recent victory happened at Pallekele on 2014.

The one thing that has reduced the gap between the two sides is the unavailability of Proteas Captain, Faf du Plessis due to an injury. If their pace spearhead Rabada is rested, Lankans will sense some more advantage.

The Lions will hope they win the toss and bat first as the pitch at Pallekele tends to show a slight advantage to defending sides. The number gets skewed towards teams batting 1st when South Africa is their opponent. At Pallekele teams batting 1st have won 3 matches out of 4.

CricBuzz Preview

The last time Sri Lanka won a bilateral series was in June 2016. It was against Ireland. Year 2017 was abysmal for them and it was looking better for them in 2018 when they won a tri-series involving Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. But it is back to square one after the drubbing at the hands of South Africa.

The series is done and dusted but umpteen questions remain unanswered. Is Upul Tharanga’s form waning and will he fit into the plans for the 2019 World Cup? The middle order has been wobbly and can it be fixed just with the return of Dinesh Chandimal? Where is Asela Gunaratne? When will Danushka Gunathilaka finish his off-field battles? All these questions might seem rhetorical but have been swatted under the carpet.

The failures have been well documented and it is not one department rather all the three – batting, bowling and fielding – which has come a cropper time and again for the Lankan team. Ranked eighth in the ODI rankings, Sri Lanka have less than a year now to chalk a road map for the 2019 World Cup.

South Africa, after their meek surrender earlier in the year against India, have bounced back in style. And this despite the premature retirement of AB de Villiers. The arrival of Reeza Hendricks and William Mulder has given them a fresh lease of life but the no show from Aiden Markram has been a cause of concern. But JP Duminy’s form and the pacers finding their rhythm have helped the Proteas clinch the series. They wouldn’t want to take their foot off the pedal just yet.

What: Sri Lanka vs South Africa, 4th ODI

When: 8th August, 09:00 GMT, 14:30 IST

Where: Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele

Weather: A touch of afternoon rain is forecast in Pallekele. Sri Lanka and rains are never far away from each other. So, expect a rain break.

Team News:

Sri Lanka: The home team will be worried about their senior opener – Tharanga’s form and would want him to get back among the runs. The changes might not happen given they would want to field their strongest team.

South Africa: Quinton de Kock will lead the side for the final two ODIs (Duminy will lead in the T20Is) in Faf du Plessis’s absence. Aiden Markram, who skippered in the home series against India, might come back in to the side after being dropped for the third ODI. Junior Dala also might get a look in.

What they said:

“I’ve been told that my position in the ODI side is down at No. 6 or 7, so I will have to train and play accordingly.” – Dhananjaya de Silva

“JP [Duminy] played an unbelievable knock. The last couple of games he’s been playing very well and for South Africa going forward, it’s good to see him playing that well, playing the way he is at the moment.” – Reeza Hendricks

Teams:

South Africa (From): Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock(w/c), Reeza Hendricks, Jean-Paul Duminy, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Willem Mulder, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi, Junior Dala, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram

Sri Lanka (From): Upul Tharanga, Niroshan Dickwella(w), Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, Thisara Perera, Angelo Mathews(c), Dhananjaya de Silva, Akila Dananjaya, Suranga Lakmal, Prabath Jayasuriya, Lahiru Kumara, Lakshan Sandakan, Kasun Rajitha, Dasun Shanaka, Shehan Jayasuriya

Big Picture

Two Tests and three ODIs into the tour, there has been depressingly little competitive cricket between these teams. South Africa were wiped the floor with in the Tests, unable to muster competence with the bat until the final innings of the series. Since then, Sri Lanka have been woeful in the ODIs, their batting, fielding and bowling taking it in turns to fail in the three matches so far. The one-day series has already been decided, which would ordinarily make these last two games fairly pointless. But, thankfully, because the World Cup is on the horizon, there is a little more than pride to play for. Sri Lanka have to peel themselves off the floor, and try yet again to snap this losing streak against South Africa that has now stretched to 11 ODIs. South Africa now have the freedom to trial even more of their World Cup hopefuls.

It is the reshuffling of South Africa’s side, prompted partly by the shoulder injury that has ruled captain Faf du Plessis out of the remainder of the tour, that may bring the two teams a little closer together. South Africa might decide there is little point in giving Kagiso Rabada another game, for example, and have Junior Dala fill in, instead. Provided the Pallekele pitch looks somewhat spin friendly, Keshav Maharaj could also come into the mix.

The problem for Sri Lanka is that even South Africa’s second-string players seem to perform at a higher level than Sri Lanka’s frontliners at present. Reeza Hendricks, for example, hit a bright debut ton on Sunday, in a series in which no Sri Lanka batsmen have got themselves to triple figures. So even with a slew of potential South Africa changes, it is difficult to suggest Sri Lanka are finally well-placed to win a match.

In the spotlight

While South Africa have pinned hopes on Wiaan Mulder becoming a world-class allrounder, another all-round talent may be emerging in the form of Andile Phehlukwayo. Right now, Phehlukwayo’s batting may not quite be good enough for him to claim a place as an allrounder, and yet, on Sunday, the team sent him out ahead of Mulder in the batting order, and Phehlukwayo repaid that faith by hitting three fours and a six in an 11-ball innings that yielded 24 not-out. He has also been good with the ball. Though not as fast as Rabada or Lungi Ngidi, Phehlukwayo seems to have worked out quickly which lengths to bowl on Sri Lanka’s one-day pitches, and that nous has brought him six wickets in the last two games.

Although one of the senior batsmen in what is a fairly inexperienced team, Upul Tharanga is yet to make a substantial contribution in this series. In and out of the side for so many years, Tharanga seemed to have unlocked the secret to one-day consistency in 2017, in which he averaged 48.14 with the bat. If Sri Lanka are to be a strong contender for the World Cup, Tharanga will have to ensure he keeps churning out 50-plus scores on a regular basis over the next year.

Team news

Aiden Markram may come back into the side for the injured du Plessis, with Quinton de Kock standing in as captain in the last two ODIs. South Africa will think seriously about resting Rabada, before JP Duminy takes over the captaincy reins for the one-off T20I.

South Africa (possible): 1 Quinton de Kock (wk, capt.), 2 Hashim Amla, 3 Reeza Hendricks, 4 Aiden Markram, 5 JP Duminy, 6 David Miller, 7 Wiaan Mulder, 8 Andile Phehlukwayo, 9 Junior Dala, 10 Tabraiz Shamsi, 11 Lungi Ngidi

Sri Lanka may think about bringing Kasun Rajitha back into the side, perhaps at the expense of left-arm spinner Prabath Jayasuriya.

Sri Lanka (possible): 1 Kusal Perera, 2 Niroshan Dickwella (wk), 3 Upul Tharanga, 4 Kusal Mendis, 5 Angelo Mathews (capt.), 6 Dhananjaya de Silva, 7 Thisara Perera, 8 Akila Dananjaya, 9 Suranga Lakmal, 10 Lahiru Kumara, 11 Kasun Rajitha

Pitch and conditions

The pitch on Sunday seemed to be a generic one-day surface with plenty of runs, so expect the same on Wednesday. The ball does tend to zip around under lights at Pallekele, though, which may put the chasing team at a slight disadvantage.

Stats and trivia

  • Andile Phehlukwayo averages 36.57 with a strike rate of 100, with the bat. That is largely because he has stayed unbeaten in 10 of his 17 innings
  • Upul Tharanga has hit only one fifty in eight innings this year
  • Kusal Perera needs 24 runs to complete 2000 in ODIs
