toss South Africa chose to bowl Vs Sri Lanka

Sune Luce opted to follow South Africa’s Swansong on the tour that began two months ago in Ireland. While they won both white-ball series in Ireland, they drew Tests in England, lost both series and are currently on a streak of eight consecutive losses. They are out of contention for the semi-finals of the Commonwealth Games and will play Sri Lanka to determine who finishes with the Group B wooden spoon.

Sri Lanka are also out of the race for the knockout after their defeats against England and New Zealand. Sri Lanka were completely eyeing their captain Chamari Athapaththu in both their matches, who has scored only 10 runs in the tournament so far. Sri Lanka also has a bigger picture in mind after being granted conditional hosting rights for the Women’s T20 Champions Trophy in 2027. The condition of course is that they qualify for the event.

Both the teams made one change in the XI played in their previous matches. South Africa swapped Ayabonga’s blueprint for the Masabata class, while Sri Lanka dropped opener Vishmi Gunaratne and picked seamer Malasha Shehani to play in their third T20I, and first in the Commonwealth Games.

South Africa: 1 Anneke Bosch, 2 Tzmin Brits, 3 Laura Wolvaardt, 4 Chloe Tryon, 5 Mignon du Preez, 6 Sune Luce (captain), 7 Nadine de Klerk, 8 Sinalo Jaffa (wk), 9 Shabnim Ismail, 10 Masabata Klass, 11 noncululeco mlabas

Sri Lanka1 Chamari Athapaththu (captain), 2 Hasini Perera, 3 Harshita Samarawickrama, 4 Neelakshi de Silva, 5 Kavisha Dilhari, 6 Anoushka Sanjeevani (wk), 7 Ama Kanchana, 8 Malsha Shahani, 9 Oshadi Ranasinghe, 10 Sugandhika Kumari, 11 Inoka Ranveera
