SL vs SA Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for 3rd T20I

Aiden Markram is a good captaincy pick for this contest.


South Africa will lock horns with Sri Lanka in the 3rd and final T20I of the series. The clash takes place at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on September 14 (Tuesday). Having won the first two matches, the Proteas side has already clinched the series 2-0. Hence, this game is a mere dead rubber.

Nevertheless, Sri Lanka have pride to play for as they would want to avoid getting whitewashed at home. On the other hand, a 3-0 triumph will definitely give the Proteas ahead of the high-voltage T20 World Cup. Hence, it would be interesting to see how this game pans out.

Top Picks for SL vs SA Dream11 Match:

Top Picks – Batsmen

Kusal Perera scored just 30 in the previous encounter and would like to make a more significant contribution in the last game.

Aiden Markram extended his fine form and scored 69 runs in the first two games. He won’t mind playing another match-winning knock.

Top Picks – All-Rounders

Wanindu Hasaranga has been on a roll lately and Sri Lanka would be counting on him. The leg-spinner has scalped three wickets in this series.

Dwaine Pretorius will be a decent budget pick from the all-rounders. He had a decent first game, where he picked up a wicket and scored 10 runs.

Top Picks – Bowlers

Keshav Maharaj has bowled economically in the series and the Sri Lankan batters have struggled to read him. The left-arm spinner has taken two wickets in this series.

Tabraiz Shamsi is the top-ranked T20I bowler at the moment and South Africa will want him to deliver in this match as well. He has picked up four wickets in this series.

Top Picks – Wicketkeepers

Quinton de Kock can possess a massive threat to Sri Lankan bowlers. The wicketkeeper-batter has slammed 94 runs in this series so far.
