Sri Lanka will prevent whitewash or South Africa make it 4-0 on the fourth ODI of the 5 matches’ series in Port Elizabeth. Despite Sri Lanka won both tests against South Africa but the hosts turned around on the ODI as well.

As South Africa won the first three ODI and ensured the series already. So South Africa is playing beyond the pressure to lose. But the visitors Sri Lanka has the inverse statement on it. The fourth match will be at 11 AM (GMT) at Port Elizabeth with plenty of suns. Though the bowlers can have some facilities especially, the seamers the batsmen can score well.

South Africa has a well-balanced team

Look at the last three matches of the ODI series, South Africa has a well-balanced team. The opener Quinton de Cock is wonderfully on the form that makes the opening more powerful. Then Captain Faf du Plessis maybe belongs to the best form of his career. The dangerman David Miller and Rassie Van der Dussen or all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo’s flash can destroy any of the bowling line-ups.

On the other hand, the Protea bowling line-up is another horrible matter for any batsman. Kagiso Rabada, Dale Styen or Imran Tahir have the young-stars Lungi Ngidi, Tabriz Shams and Aiden Markram to fire on the pitch. Obviously, South Africa is leading on the head to head comparison.

The probable eleven

Quinton de Kock(w), Reeza Hendricks, Faf du Plessis(c), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, Imran Tahir, Dale Steyn, Jean-Paul Duminy, Aiden Markram, Anrich Nortje

Sri Lanka has to prevent the whitewash

At the eleventh hour of the series, Sri Lanka has the only target to prevent the whitewash only. So they need to be more careful on their batting. The opener Avishka Fernando and Captain Niroshan Dickwella need to score bigger to the massive bowling of South Africa. Then Oshada Fernando, and experienced Kusal Mendis and Kusal Perera have to keep their form like the previous. If Sri Lanka wants to prevent another whitewash they need to build bigger partnerships.

To the bowling, Sri Lanka has some high profile bowlers with the combinations of youth. But the bunch is suffering in here for the few matches. So, the bowlers need to fire on the wicket as the opponents’ bowlers made. Lasith Malinga the captain need Isru Udana, Kasun Rajith, Akila Dhananjaya and all-rounder Thisara Perera, with him to tie up early in the match.

The probable eleven

Quinton de Kock(w), Reeza Hendricks, Faf du Plessis(c), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, Imran Tahir, Dale Steyn, Jean-Paul Duminy, Aiden Markram, Anrich Nortje
