July is a great month for cricket aficionados around the world with highlight events such as England's meeting with India in a five-Test encounters and New Zealand's venture to the West Indies. Another interesting event begins early morning today in Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, as South Africa meets the home team for three One Day Internationals (ODI). (5:15am UK time)
Sri Lanka on a Roll
The Sri Lankans are coming to today's match strong as they are on a winning streak, with titles won in the Asia Cup and the ICC World Twenty20 plus two victories over Bangladesh and England in their pockets.
Seeing that they are returning home today to play in a friendly environment after their long stretch abroad, they are favorites to emerge as winners here and complete a fifth consecutive win. Sri Lanka has really stepped up their game with brilliant performances by players like Kusal Perera, Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara and their captain Angelo Mathews.
South Africa "Ready for Sri Lanka"
Despite Sri Lanka's excellent condition, Proteas coach Russell Domingo remained steadfast telling the press that his team is ready for the Sri Lankan challenge.
“We are going to use all 15 players in the squad,” promised the South African coach, continuing: "It’s important that we give everyone a bit of an outing so that all the bowlers can put in some overs and hopefully get as many batsmen as possible to have a hit or two." One thing that the South Africans will have to adjust to is the heat and humidity.
