South Africa is all set to take on Sri Lanka in the 1st T20 match for Sri Lanka tour of South Africa 2019 series.

The first T20 match South Africa vs Sri Lanka will be held at Newlands, Cape Town on 19th March 2019.
Though, Sri Lanka clean swapped the host side in the two match test series, but Proteas struck back with a furious attitude by steamrolling the Lankan side in the five match ODI series.

So, they once again got the opportunity to prove their dominance in the T20 format.

The ODI series was a total failure for them and now T20 format will test their skills against South Africa.
To win this T20 match, Sri Lanka needs to be stay focused on their game plan and score a big total, if they bat first. Whereas, South Africa will have to strike for early wickets and they can beat Sri Lanka in this game.
