Proteas are at 10 with 24 points in Super League Standing. An important series against unsettled Sri Lankan side that could place them at the top.

Two new stars Hasaranga, Jayawickrama followed by Dhananjaya to be the go to man for Sri Lanka in this series. For Proteas it will depend on how they negotiate spin attack

I'm looking forward to this. Expecting South Africa to win the series, perhaps 2-1.

Yes, it is a very important series for both the sides, that is for sure. Sri Lanka are dead certainly looking at WC qualifiers if they lose this series.

SL wins 2-1. South Africa are really a pretty average side these days.

Surely South Africa must be wondering about their investment in Phehlukwayo. He's 25 now & been around since 2016 yet his stats are unremarkable. At FC level there are no centuries & 61 wickets after 42 matches. He bats low in the shorter format & in this series he bowled 11 overs in 3 games.
By now, he should be someone they look at to grab a game by the scruff of the neck & take control. Just saying.

ehh his stats are all right for an allrounder. This series was tough for quicks too.

I don't like Mark Boucher as a coach, he has been plain stupid. He plays 3-4 all rounders for no reason, he hasn't given a longer rope to players like Verreynne who keep getting dropped but continues to persist With Markram and Reeza.

Also I think players like Hamza, De Zorzi should get the nod over Reeza, Phelukwayo and even Markram. These three have been around for quite long now with absolutely zero impact.
