Sri Lanka will look to assert their dominance once again after a confidence-boosting victory in the first ODI against South Africa at Colombo. The Lankans are bating first in the second ODI.
With a formidable team line-up South Africa will work hard to push Sri Lanka.
The South Africans were blown away by a master-class innings from Kumar Sangakkara (169 from 137 balls) and were never really in the running during their chase. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals and Sri Lanka took a 1-0 lead in the five-match ODI series.
Sri Lanka: Upul Tharanga, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Lahiru Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Dinesh Chandimal (c), Jehan Mubarak, Rangana Herath, Shaminda Eranga, Lasith Malinga
South Africa: Hashim Amla, Alviro Petersen, Jean-Paul Duminy, AB de Villiers (c&wk), Faf du Plessis, David Miller, Robin Peterson, Ryan McLaren, Chris Morris, Morne Morkel, Aaron Phangiso
