SL vs SA: 2nd T20 : Match Prediction
South Africa`s batting line-up relies heavily on their top-order and David Miller to score runs. They have depth in the batting line-up till N0.8 with players capable of swinging the bat hard in search of runs. They have a good mix of spin and pace bowlers in the playing XI. Sri lanka`s batting line-up does not look promising but they have a battalion of spinners who can destroy the opposition in these tracks (Like the third ODI match). Sri Lanka`s spin strength and home conditions tilts our match prediction in their favor.
