    After the great WI/SL series looking forward to this one. Pity only 2 Tests, getting sad that keeps happening. SA a quality batsmen light with de Villiers gone. Bowling stocks strong. Interesting to see the spinners picked. Really hoping for a great Steyn comeback.

    SL tough at home think it will be a great series.

    SL likely to play three spinners and prepare some flat tracks.
    Supporting players: Dinesh Chandimal, Roshen Silva, Kusal Janith, Nuwan Pradeep, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara, Akila Dhananjaya, Dhananjaya de Silva

    I love cricket and i think every guy out there love's it as it is a gentleman's game. This was a amazing series as red ball is always great.

    I think SA's attack will have too much for SL's inexperienced batting lineup. If Amla and Du Plessis can regain some form, they should have enough to win the series. SL have a good chance if they can keep those two down.

    The SL wickets of late have been quite sporting so if they remain that way there should be some fun bowling on display.

    Why not go spin friendly? RSA has the firepower to get wickets on flat tracks.

    If SL can get a team that looks something like this on the park...

    1. Karunaratne
    2. Dhananjaya de Silva
    3. Kusal Mendis
    4. Roshen Silva
    5. Chandimal
    6. Matthews
    7. Dickwella
    8. Dilruwan
    9. Phatty
    10. Lakmal
    11. Kumara

    Then they have a decent sniff, there's a solid top 7 worth of quality(ish) batsmen but problem is one of them has to bat out of position and open, either that or with mind to SA's pace attack Kaushal Silva may come into the reckoning again to try and provide a bit of fortitude up the order, probably displacing Roshen Silva.

    If this hypothetical team is available (and given the charges against Chandimal it may well not be) hopefully we will see the end of the 5 bowlers thing now that the quicks have had a good series in WI and the sort of Kusal Perera/Lahiru Thirrimanne types can be canned for good.

    The right combination needs to be settled on quickly though because SL have an awful lot of touring outside of the SC coming up in the next 2 years
    Borges and YorksLanka like this.

    I hope Sri Lanka wins today; that should boost their confidence to face SA.
    Though, facing a fit Steyn would still be a fearsome prospect, on any kind of wicket.

    I really like the look of your team.. but wonder whether Pradeep could come in instead of dilruwan but then that does put more pressure on the top 7 to score?-other option would be to have Kusal P at 8 and get the extra overs from DDS which would mean 8 batters~??

    I'd say don't play Kumara. Keep him for overseas test matches only. He is not going to gain anything bowling on dustbowls in 34C temperature and 90pct humidity. Kasun Rajitha is the sort of bowler who can bowl on green tops as well as dust bowls without much issues.

    Preparing dust bowls is playing into hands of SAF. It will narrow the gap between spinners of two sides. Slowish flat tracks will negate SAF quicks, and only best of spinners will be able to take advantage of what ever spin available. Just like SAF dishing out fastish flat tracks in SAF, where Steyn and co can extract life out, but others cannot.

    SA have the better spinner anyway if Herath doesn't play.

    Did not know you had seen von Berg bowl....


    Seriously if von Berg plays then RSA will win the tubby bowler award with Philander in the line-up as well.

    I don't think that would be a good idea. SA have the bowlers with pace and reverse to take wickets. Better to go with dustbowls.

    Not that I really give SL much chance regardless mind you. Would be good if they could pull off a miracle.
