Sri Lanka Legends will lock horns with South Africa Legends in the second semi-final of the ongoing Road Safety World T20. When the two teams met in the league stages few days back, Tillakaratne Dilshan’s side crushed the Proteas by 9 wickets. However, Jonty Rhodes’ side looked a completely different team towards the business end as they defeated England Legends and Bangladesh Legends comprehensively. With a place in grand finale up for grabs, the stage is set for a mouth-watering contest in Raipur on Friday.
Tillakaratne Dilshan has completely taken the tournament by storm with his all-round show. He is the leading run-scorer and wicket-taker and is looking at his absolute best. Upul Tharanga and Chamara Silva are the X-Factor players for the Lankans in the middle-order. Rangana Herath and Dhammika Prasad have been impressive with the ball in hand and could play a key role in this match.
Morne van Wyk and Andrew Puttick are going to be the key players at top of the order, coming on the back of a 161-run partnership against Bangladesh Legends. Jonty Rhodes has been a vital cog in the middle-order while Alviro Petersen has also looked impressive in a few outings. Makhaya Nitini and Thandi Tshabalala will be the players to watch out for in the bowling department.
