Today ODI World Cup 2023 Match – South Africa vs Sri Lanka Match Preview, Pitch and Weather Report, Playing XI

The Arun Jaitley Stadium, Dehli, is all set to host its first game of the ODI World Cup between South Africa and Sri Lanka. South Africa is one of the hot favorites for winning the ODI World Cup 2023, while Sri Lanka Cricket is struggling and trying to build up their team after the retirement of their star players.

South Africa is in great form after winning an ODI series against Australia. Australia beat them in the first two games with a big margin. But South Africa made a strong comeback and won the last three games back-to-back with a margin of more than a hundred runs. Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller played some extraordinary cricket in this series.

South Africa have played only one warmup game after their arrival in India. They face a defeat against New Zealand in a rain-affected match. The other game against Afghanistan was completely washed out due to rain.

South Africa has a solid batting line for this event. They have all the ingredients to attack the bowling side in early overs and power hitters for the finishing overs. This South African side is very different from the usual South African squad because, for the first time, they have a very strong batting line as compared to their bowlers.

Although Sri Lanka won a few games in the Asia Cup and succeeded in reaching the final, they have a weaker side as compared to their strength in the 2011 and 2015 World Cup. They played two warmup games in India against Bangladesh and Afghanistan and lost both games. Sri Lanka’s bowling lineup is quite weak. They are relying on their spin bowlers in the form of Dunith Wellalage, Dushan Hemantha, and Dhananjaya. Whereas their main batters are Kusal Perera and Kusal Mendis. Kusal is making a comeback after injury, and it is not certain that he can play a valuable knock.

SA vs SL : Arun Jailty Stadium Dehli Pitch Report

Dehli Stadium is usually known as a low scoring venue as the pitches are different as compared to other venues in India. Usually, spinners are very effective as they get help in swinging the bowl. Moreover, fast bowlers can get early wickets with the new ball.

The average score for Arun Jaitley Stadium is around 240 to 260. Pakistan and West Indies are the only teams that succeeded in scoring more than 300 runs at this venue. The last match was played in October 2022 at this venue, where the South African batting lineup collapsed against India after scoring only 99 runs.

The winning ratio between teams batting first and second is almost similar; the team wins 13 games batted first and 14 by the chasing side. Still, dew plays an important role in Dehli, and it is preferable to bowl first at this ground.
