This is one of those awful matches where motivation could be a factor as only one team has anything to play for but the team in question remain the underdogs for the match. Sri Lanka have a poor recent record against South Africa but they do have an outside chance of reaching the semi-finals and a win here is key. The key for them will be whether their batting unit can match their bowling attack who are playing well and should give them a chance in this game. So much depends on South Africa’s mindset as in some ways they may now benefit from playing with freedom. That said, there is very little in their recent performances to suggest South Africa can reverse this form so Sri Lanka may just be able to sneak another win and join England on eight points.
