1. Toss Prediction
South Africa recently played in the Women’s T20 Tri-series wherein they won two out of five tosses they took part in. In the warm-up game at the T20 WC, South Africa won the toss. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka lost the toss against Ireland. So, considering these factors, luck is expected to favour Sune Luus on Friday.
2. Win Possibility
South Africa Women are the clear favourites to win the match on Friday as they have been in good form as of late. Plus, they will be playing at their home. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka look depleted after how they performed at Asia Cup 2022. Even in the warm-up match against Ireland, Sri Lanka barely won it.
3. Powerplay score and First inning total
The batters will be able to strike well in the first few overs as the Newlands pitch has decent bounce and pace in it. So, the powerplay score is expected to be around 29-37. Meanwhile, the average first-inning total here has been 147.
