Sri Lanka vs South Africa 2nd T20I Match Prediction. Sri Lanka will take on visitors to South Africa in the second T20I at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday, September 12.
The first T20I was a humdinger of a contest, with South Africa emerging victorious by 28 runs. After opting to bat first, the Proteas put up 163 runs on the board, riding on significant contributions from their top order.
After missing their services in the ODIs, South Africa was bolstered by the return of the likes of Quinton de Kock and David Miller, who put in impactful performances in the first game of the series with the bat in hand.
In reply, Sri Lanka got off to quite a decent start but wickets fell in clumps which prevented them from chasing what was quite a par total. Dinesh Chandimal’s swashbuckling half-century went in vain as most of the other batsmen failed to play a supporting role.
Sri Lanka crashed to a 28-run loss as the South Africa spinners wreaked havoc on a track that had plenty of grips and turns on offer. However, the hosts will be looking to make a booming comeback and replicate their heroics from the ODI series comes the second T20I.

The track has plenty to supply for slow and spin bowlers, which was evident from the primary T20I where the spinners chipped in with wickets while also keeping a check on the flow of runs.
However, batsmen who adapt to the conditions well will find it easier to attain runs and therefore the side batting first will look to notch up a complete of somewhere around the 160-run mark.
Temperatures will remain constant at around 28 degrees Celsius throughout the sport, with high humidity on the brink of 78%. there’s a really low chance of precipitation and fans will presumably be treated to a contest that will not be suffering from rain.
