What is happening to the South Africa cricket team as they were the failure in test cricket in front of their home crowd. As concern with their key player are at rest and some had announced retirement from international cricket. Hasim Amla is out due to injury and ABD Villers take retirement from every match of international. Because to defeat South Africa in front of their home crowd is not a cup of tea. sri Lanka wins the test series with their new team and so South Africa feeling ashamed due to their worst performance.
After winning the test series, Srilanka losing back to back two ODI in a row. South Africa now have the lead of 2-0 in the series. They are one step behind to win the series. After winning the first ODI, South Africa team target was to have a 2-0 lead and so they achieved it with the help of their bowlers. when South Africa started their innings, openers done a great job with having 91 runs partnership for the first wicket. After that wicket started falling and don't give a chance to South Africa batsman to have a big partnership.
Quinton de Kock and skipper Faf du Plessis half-century helped South Africa team to have 250 runs at the board. Malinga and Thisara Perera were two bowlers who put pressure on the South African batsman. Apart from this the little help from Dhananjay who helped to make South Africa team all out at the score of 251 runs and still they were having 5 overs in hand.
South Africa target of 252 runs for Sri Lanka in 50 overs. srilanka team need a good start from their openers. But, top three batsmen cant able to score even a two digit score and get out. Oshanda Fernando and kusal Mendis had a 40 runs partnership stand for the fourth wicket. Then, kusal Mendis was run out and suddenly Oshanda Fernando got out in the same over of Anrich north. later on, wicket starts falling and the Srilankan team were bundled inside the score of 150. It was a disappointing moment for Srilankan fans due to this performance.
Rabada, lungi Guidi, enrich north and Imran Tahir all together did not give any hope to Sri Lanka to win the match and so they restrict them at 138 runs. Quinton de Kock great innings help him to have the man of the match award. however, South Africa was 50 runs less as they started their inning. But somehow they win the match cant bother it. absent of jp Duminy, Hasim Amla and Dale Steyn makes the team new and so they would be included in the upcoming world cup squad which will be held in England and whales.
