Sri Lanka and South Africa face off in the second Test at Colombo. It is a rare sight that Sri Lanka come into this Test match 0-1 down in the series as they lost the first Test. South Africa are under a new captain, Hashim Amla and they have already tasted some success. Now, their aim would be to do something they have never done, that is to beat Sri Lanka in the series.

Sri Lanka would hope that Kumar Sangakkara will continue his good form and help Sri Lanka win. Mahela Jayawardene is also one of their main players and has to fire as he has announced his retirement, which will take place at the end of the summer. Jayawardene would want  sign off on a high and here is his chance to do just that.

Teams:

Sri Lanka : Upul Tharanga, Kaushal Silva, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Angelo Mathews(c), Dilruwan Perera, Rangana Herath, Suranga Lakmal, Ajantha Mendis.

South Africa : Alviro Petersen, Dean Elgar, Hashim Amla(c), Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, Jean-Paul Duminy, Quinton de Kock(wk), Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir.
