South Africa squad announcement for Sri Lanka tour

South Africa will fight against Sri Lanka who will be instilled with great confidence after recently defeating India in the T20Is. Sri Lanka recently played three ODIs and as many T20Is against India wherein the ODI series was won by India but hosts took away the T20Is. After COVID-19 havoc broke in India’s camp, they walked up with their depleted side and completed the series. Under the guidance of Rahul Dravid, many youngsters got the chance to showcase their skills.

Talking about South Africa, they played last against West Indies and won the two-match Test series as 2-0 and the five-match T20I series as 3-2. It will be a thing to see how they will play against Sri Lanka on their soil the next month.
