There will be a tough competition between South Africa’s batsmen and Sri Lanka’s bowlers

New York. An exciting match can be seen between South African batsmen and Sri Lankan bowlers in the Group D match of the T20 World Cup to be held here on Monday. South Africa’s batting is very strong while Sri Lanka has a diverse bowling attack. Both teams will try to open their account in the points table right from the beginning by focusing on their strong points. This group includes the teams of Netherlands, Bangladesh and Nepal which can make a difference. South Africa has batsmen like captain Aiden Markram, wicketkeeper batsman Heinrich Klaasen, Quinton de Kock, David Miller and Tristan Stubbs. Klaasen and Stubbs are in excellent form. Both of them recently performed brilliantly in the IPL.

Klaasen scored 471 runs in 16 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad while Stubbs scored 378 runs in four matches while playing for Delhi Capitals. Both these batsmen showed their batting prowess when spinners were bowling in the middle overs. The aggressive attitude of these two against spinners will definitely be a matter of concern for Sri Lanka’s spinner captain Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana. Sri Lanka, which has so far failed to make it to the knockouts in the T20 World Cup, can also hand over the ball to fast bowlers Mathisha Pathirana and Dilshan Madhushanka in the middle overs.

However, South Africa recently lost 0-3 in the T20 series against the West Indies and Sri Lanka will try to take inspiration from this. If Sri Lanka has to move forward, its batsmen will also have to perform well. It has batsmen like experienced Angelo Mathews, explosive Kusal Mendis and Dhananjay de Silva, while former captain Dasun Shanaka can score some quick runs in the lower order. South Africa’s bowling does not have variety like Sri Lanka and it will largely depend on fast bowler Kagiso Rabada and left-arm wrist spinner Tabrez Shamsi.
