Watch SL v SA highlights today – 3rd t20 full from Newlands, Cape Town (South Africa) Wednesday 25th January 2017. First of all winners of today’s match will win this t20 series because it’s third and also final t20 match and both teams won equal matches before today’s match. Sri Lankan batsmen are performing better than the South African team in this t20 series because N Dickwella from Sri Lanka is the most runs scorer from both teams so far with 65 runs in the last two matches, AD Mathews scored 60 and the third number most runs scorer is F Behardien from South Africa. L Ngidi took six wickets in two matches and he is the most wicket-taker, PADLR Sandakan took four and KMDN Kulasekara also took four.
Mathews’ injury-enforced absence means Sri Lanka will have to upset a winning combination. Dinesh Chandimal will lead in Mathews’ absence and, with Danushka Gunathilaka also injured, Sri Lanka may have to go into the game batsmen short. Suranga Lakmal, who was rested in Johannesburg, could be back in search of a series win. De Villiers’ return, most probably in the No.3 position, will displace one of Jon-Jon Smuts or Theunis de Bruyn, which also means Reeza Hendricks is unlikely to get a look in at all these series. Dane Paterson could make his debut on his home ground, with South Africa likely to use only one specialist spinner.
