Sri Lanka’s rush for runs gives South Africa another home headache!!

Back to back matches are going on and today we’ll highlight the game between South Africa and Sri Lanka in which Sri Lanka’s rush for runs gives Africa another home headache! 

Honestly, some of us expected Sri Lanka to return to South Africa after the coup they pulled off 22 months ago in February 2019. By following the strategy of get-runs-before-you-get-out, their batsman made the records of highest total in South Africa

Sri Lankans doubtless confidence is driven by the success of the them becoming the first Asian side to win a series.

Let’s dig inside the Sri Lanka’s technique and squad power! 

Sometimes batsmen expect things to be tough but knows that there will be a ball with their name on it. Sri Lanka also used this technique while playing because their home surfaces demand it. 

The South African cricket coach Mickey Arthur described Sri Lanka’s team as less potent for playing Test cricket because they hadn’t played a single red ball cricket since the middle of the year and shows their presence directly in T20 competition. 

They practiced playing attacking cricket for almost 21 days and without over-crediting with a smash-and-grab game-time, some Sri Lanka’s player named Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal, Niroshan Dickwella and Kusal Perera becomes the top dozen run-scorer in the LPL. 

Do you know that South Africa’s Anrich Nortje is the biggest threat for opposition because of his steady pacing technique but when the duo Sri Lanka players Chandimal and De Silva came together on the ground, they negated him! 

South Africa’s team missed Kagiso Rabada who’s not able to play due to Groin injury. After few days, Cricket South Africa announced the final squad list according to which Lungi Ngidi would lead from the front.

This was very big responsibility for Ngidi, a player who didn’t play any Test cricket in the lasg home summer because of injury. 

So, just stay tuned to know when the Rabada will back on the ground!
