South Africa vs Sri Lanka Match Preview
South Africa felt the absence of captain Temba Bavuma during the warm-up matches. He went home for a short period, but now he’s back in India. In 2023, Bavuma is the top scorer for the Proteas in ODI cricket. He has scored 637 runs in 10 innings, with an average of 79.62. Those stats are really impressive as we head into a major tournament.
Bavuma will definitely require a lot of support. Quinton de Kock, the opening batsman, is currently in excellent form. In the recent warm-up match against New Zealand, he scored 84 runs without getting out. Before scoring a half-century against the Black Caps, his previous five One Day International (ODI) innings were 27, 45, 82, 45, and 11.
South Africa directly qualified for the World Cup, while Sri Lanka had to go through the qualifying tournament to secure their spot. The South African cricket team, known as the Proteas, recently won a One Day International (ODI) series against Australia. On the other hand, the Sri Lankan cricket team made it to the final of the 2023 Asia Cup in the previous month. Both teams have the opportunity to maintain their momentum in this match.
Sri Lanka will be happy to have spinner Maheesh Theekshana on their team. He was unable to play in the Asia Cup final because of an injury, but he has since recovered. In 2023, Theekshana has taken 31 wickets in 15 matches in ODI cricket, making them the third-highest wicket-taker. This means they have an average of more than two wickets per match.

SA vs SL Head-to-Head
South Africa has emerged victorious in three out of their last five One Day International (ODI) matches against Sri Lanka. South Africa and Sri Lanka have played against each other in One Day International (ODI) matches since 1992. South Africa won 45 out of 78 matches played, while Sri Lanka won 33 matches. They have not played against each other in this specific format of international cricket since 2021.
The upcoming match in Delhi will be the first out of five round-robin matches in the World Cup. The playing field is in good shape and the area beyond the infield looks promising. A score of approximately 280 in the first innings could be considered a competitive total.
Sri Lanka has not played a full One Day International (ODI) match in Delhi since 2009. However, South Africa and India had a match in Delhi last year. The venue has witnessed only over 300 first-innings totals, suggesting that we can anticipate a match with relatively low scores.
