Preview: After Sri Lanka completed an exciting 2-1 win over South Africa in the recently-concluded ODI series, the action now shifts to the T20Is. With the World Cup approaching, both the sides will be looking to put their best foot forward in their preparations for the mega event. While Sri Lanka will look to continue the momentum, the Proteas will be raring to fight back in the shortest format of the game as the 3-match series kicks off in Colombo on Friday.

Pitch Report:

Key Players:

Analysis: Quinton de Kock should be back in South Africa's top order with the wicketkeeper batsman set to strengthen Proteas' batting line-up. Heinrich Klassen is expected to retain his side in the middle-order and can be a part of your fantasy side considering his recent form. Talking about batsmen, Charith Asalanka and Aiden Markram will be the players to watch out for as they were quite impressive for their respective sides in ODI series.

Wanindu Hasaranga and George Linde are two spin bowling all-rounders who can be useful with both bat and ball on a tricky Colombo wicket. Among the bowlers, Tabraiz Shamsi should be a definite addition in your fantasy side as the left-arm spinner scalped 8 wickets in 3 matches in the ODIs. Maheesh Theekshana could prove to the X-factor as he absolutely bamboozled the SA batsmen with his mystery spin in the last ODI.
