Watch SL vs SA highlights today – 4th ODI from Newlands, Cape Town (South Africa) Tuesday 7th February 2017. Sri Lanka team is not looking comfortable in ODI format because South Africa won all last three matches very easily without any trouble. If South Africa won all five matches then their ODI ranking will be improved and they will become no 1 team because now their Rating is 118 and they are in the second position and Australia also got 118 Rating. Batting first at Newlands is key to success, especially in day-night matches in which 22 of the 28 ODIs have been won by the side that sets a target.
Sri Lanka can’t win the series, but there’s still plenty to play for. Here’s an opportunity for their young batsmen, many of whom have been spoken of highly by coach Graham Ford, to step up and confirm their tickets to the Champions Trophy. South Africa, meanwhile, have an incentive of being the No. 1 ranked ODI team should they win the remaining two matches. They have yet to total over 200 and have only two half-centuries in the series. South Africa has put on three fifties and two hundred and have topped 300 on the only occasion they batted first, in comparison. The gulf between the sides is obvious and Sri Lanka appears some way from closing it. Can they turn up today?
