South Africa Vs Sri Lanka Third and Final Test Johannesburg
Question in detailSouth Africa VS Sri Lanka Final Test: Sri Lanka has been undergoing a transition phase, and perhaps for this reason they haven't fared well in recent times. Two straight defeats by over 200 runs in South Africa clearly meant Lankans had already conceded a 3-0 clean sweep ahead of the final game at Johannesburg. The least Lankans can think from now onward is hoping to cope well in the last battle. But to revive their fortunes, Lanka need their young talent to step up even more confidently, intrepidly and positively, which given their ability to bat on quick and bouncy African tracks looks like reaching the milestone. So, it's no less than a daydreaming for the visitors to become the winner of SA VS SL 3rd Test.
The upbeat home side, leveraging on their unbeaten streak in the ongoing Test series, have many reasons to eye a complete 3-0 clean sweep in South Africa VS Sri Lanka Final Test. Despite being confident, RSA face a dilemma of whether to deploy Wayne Parnell and Duanne Olivier to a four-man pace lineup or retain left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj.
Though Suranga Lakmal and Lahiru Kumara came up with some spirited performances with ball in the previous games, lack of application from Lanka's key batsmen exposed their nightmarish efforts here at South Africa. To say the least about visitors' desperate winless run, it's just disappointing! Isn't it? Their ill-fate can be easily measured by the fact that only two of the Lankan batsmen have crossed a half-century so far, both in the first Test. Let's not be so predictable about who will become the winner of SA VS SL 3rd Test; it's a game of uncertainty where even impossible can turn possible. And this is what goes in Lanka's favor.
