The ninth ICC Men’s T20 World Cup began on June 2. After the initial three matches, the tournament will shift to New York for a clash between two formidable teams, South Africa and Sri Lanka, at the Nassau County International Stadium. The match will be played at 8.00 PM IST. 

Sri Lanka, led by Wanindu Hasaranga, boasts a strong lineup featuring players like Kusal Mendis, Matheesha Pathirana, Angelo Mathews, Dasun Shanaka, and Nuwan Thushara. With such talent, they are strong contenders for the knockout stages. However, a recent warm-up match against the Netherlands highlighted some weaknesses, as they failed to chase a target of over 180, losing by 20 runs.

South Africa, on the other hand, includes dynamic players such as Aiden Markram, Tristan Stubbs, Heinrich Klaasen, and David Miller, who can turn a game around. Their bowling attack is equally impressive, with Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Marco Jansen, and Gerald Coetzee. However, they enter the tournament after a disappointing 0-3 series loss to the West Indies.

This upcoming match will be the 18th T20 encounter between South Africa and Sri Lanka. In their previous 17 matches, South Africa has won 12 times, while Sri Lanka has secured 5 victories.
