It’s do-or-die for Sri Lanka as it takes on South Africa in a World Cup fixture at the Emirates Riverside in Durham on Friday.

South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and elected to bowl against Sri Lanka in the ICC World Cup at Riverside on Friday.

South Africa have made two changes, with Dwaine Pretorius coming in for Lungi Ngidi, and JP Duminy playing in place of David Miller, who has injured his groin.

Sri Lanka: Dimuth Karunaratne (capt), Kusal Perera, Avishka Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Jeevan Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal.

 

It’s do-or-die for Sri Lanka as it takes on South Africa in a World Cup fixture at the Emirates Riverside in Durham on Friday.
