Good Afternoon/Evening, Goeie Middag, සුබ සැන්දෑවක්! Hello and Welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog session and coverage of the second of the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series between hosts South Africa, and visitors Sri Lanka, at the Kingsmead Stadium in Durban on Wednesday. I am Chinmay Jawalekar, and I will be bringing to you all the live updates from this tie. South Africa have drawn the first blood in the series, following an 8-wicket win in the opening tie at Port Elizabeth, and would certainly aim for a win here to stay in the driver’s seat. However, Sri Lanka, who won the Twenty20 International (T20I) series, would aim to bounce back, and prove the hosts that they are a force to reckon with in the limited-overs format.

In the T20I series, Sri Lanka were trailing 0-1 in a three-match series, heading towards another series defeat. However, they won the second T20I thanks to their inspirational skipper Angelo Mathews, who despite braving an injury, got them across the finishing line. Sri Lanka then went on to win the final game and series, thus scripting a brilliant comeback. South Africa, thus, need to be wary of the Sri Lankans, who can stage a similar fight-back in the ODIs. It won’t be easy though, with the Proteas playing their full-strength squad. Sri Lanka realise this, but they are more worried about their own performance than the opposition’s strength.

In their 25-year-old history, these two teams have met just once at Durban. That match, interestingly, was full of drama and ended in a tie. It was played in 2003 during the ICC Cricket World Cup. South Africa agonisingly came close to a win and entered the knockouts, but miscalculation on their part saw the match end in a tie and their subsequent ouster from the tournament. Sri Lanka progressed in the tournament and eventually were defeated in the semi-final. SA vs SL, 2nd ODI, Preview: Visitors aim to stay afloat after defeat in series opener
