South Africa vs Sri Lanka 1st Test Match Prediction
Following their decisive victory against Green Shirts in the T20 format by 2-1, South Africa now hosts a visit for Sri Lanka. The Lankan team is expected to be playing two test, five ODIs and three T20s in this tour. Hence, the first Test match between South Africa and Sri Lanka will be hosted by Kingsmead, Durban from 13th to 17th February 2019.
It was all domination by South Africa over Pakistan in the recent visit. First they outsmarted the visitors in the three match test series whitewash. And then ODI series was a bit lucky for them when they outclassed Pakistani team by 3-2. Moreover, the T20 series was like a dessert for Proteas with 2-1 victory. However, Sri Lanka might be a little different side for them.
Whereas, Sri Lanka had a bad tour in New Zealand, prior to this visit. The New Zealand crushed the Lankan team in the limited over formats. But, now they must be focusing on this tour. This might be an elevation point for young Sri Lankan team before the ICC World Cup.
South Africa will win. They have fantastic test stats against Sri Lanka previously, so they might be looking forward to continue on their winning track.
On the other side, Sri Lanka will be aiming for the victory in this match. But, their bating and bowling side need to focus on their strategies and win this game for Lankan Cricket fans.
