    Toss - Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka wins the toss and opts to bat against South Africa.

    Wanindu Hasaranga: We’re going to bat first. We can see it’s a good wicket. Just want to get a good score. Our bowling is so strong. I’m ready to go. Some players came after IPL, we played two practice games. We are going with 7-4 combination, seven batters, four bowlers and two all-rounders.

    Aiden Markram: We actually would’ve bowled. Not sure how the wicket is going to play. Team has been together now for few years. Did well at the ODI World Cup, ideally would’ve liked to go a few steps further. Good facilities here.
