South Africa will take on Sri Lanka in the first Test on February 13 in Durban. TFG fantasy sports brings you tips and tricks for this fantasy round. The game will start at 1.30 p.m. IST.
The hosts will be captained by Faf du who is going to bat in the middle order.
The pace department looks very strong with Philander, Steyn, Rabada and Olivier. We know what they did to Pakistan sometime ago.
De Kock will keep wickets and will bat down the order.
It remains to be seen if Maharaj gets chance at all in this game. We wouldn't risk picking him.
It will also be a toss up between Bruyn and Hamza in the middle order.
Amla should be the real threat for Lanka, while Markram and Elgar will open the batting.
De Kock, Markram, Amla, Faf, Bruyn/Maharaj, Bavuma, Elgar, Philander, Steyn, Rabada, Olivier
The visitors will be captained by Karuraratne who will open the batting.
Chandimal is not a part of the team. Neither is D Perera or Mathews.
With several injuries plaguing the Lankans, we expect some new faces to take field like we saw in Hobart.
K Mendis is the only guy with some experience in the batting. K Perera is likely to play as well.
Dickwella is going to keep wickets and he is likely to get some quick runs.
Karuraratne, K Mendis, Thirimanne, K Perera, D Silva, Dickwella, Lakmal, V Fernando, Rajitha, C Karuraratne/A Perera, Sandakan
