Online Cricket Betting – Free Tips | Road Safety World Series 2020-21, 2nd Semi-Final: Sri Lanka Legends vs South Africa Legends

 

Sri Lanka Legends will face the South Africa Legends in the second semi-final of the Road Safety World Series 2020-21. Sri Lanka Legends have won four consecutive matches this year, after winning and losing one game before the Covid-19 Pandemic.

They topped the standings with 20 points after a remarkable journey through the tournament. Except for India Legends, Sri Lanka Legends have outperformed all of the teams with complete team efforts, including some notable individual performances from skipper Tillakaratne Dilshan, who is equally well-rounded in all units. They’re two steps away from winning the Road Safety World Series Trophy.

Meanwhile, South Africa Legends are coming off a 10-wicket win over Bangladesh Legends, which was one of the tournament’s most significant victories. They finished third in the standings with 16 points after winning four and losing two games.

Andre Puttick and Morne van Wyk are in excellent form, and the team would need them to put in even more effort if they are to defeat the Sri Lanka Legends. Their main concern is middle-order batting, and the addition of Justin Kemp to the lineup could fix that issue. The Sri Lanka Legends thrashed them by 9 wickets in their previous meeting, and now is the perfect opportunity to reclaim it.

 

Weather 

It’s another hot day in Raipur, with a high temperature of 36 degrees Celsius in the evening. The humidity level will be at 35%. There is no risk of precipitation in today’s match.

 

Pitch 

With over 400 runs scored in the previous game in Raipur, a high-scoring game is anticipated. The bowlers don’t have much support, though changing pace is a viable tactic as the game progresses.

Wickets in hand would be crucial for either side, with both teams possibly aiming for a score of more than 180 if they bat first.

Having said that, if either team wins the toss, they would look to chase, though the conditions should stay the same during the game.
