Match Facts
  • Niroshan Dickwella (Sri Lanka) scored 133 runs in the last multi-game bilateral T20I series between South Africa and Sri Lanka, more than twice as many as any other player.
  • Chris Morris (South Africa) smashed a quickfire 55* off 29 balls in his last T20I start, the best innings of his career in the format.
  • Thisara Perera (Sri Lanka) is set to play his 73rd T20I for Sri Lanka, eclipsing Angelo Mathews as the second-most capped player for Sri Lanka in the format; Perera is also just 37 shy of his 1,000th run in T20Is for the Lions.
  • JP Duminy (South Africa) has scored 229 T20I runs at Newlands, more than any other player, including a half-century in his last match there.
  • Sri Lanka recorded a 2-0 series whitewash of New Zealand in their last bilateral (2+ match) T20I series; ending a run of three such series without victory (D1 L2).
  • Sri Lanka have lost five of their last six T20I fixtures, including their last two on the bounce despite having won the toss on each of those two occasions.
  • South Africa have won only two of their last eight T20Is at Newlands; they will be looking for back-to-back wins at the venue for the first time since 2007 after clinching a six-run win there over Pakistan last month.
  • South Africa fell to a 27-run defeat in their last T20I, snapping a five-game win streak in the format; each of their last four T20I games have been won by the team to bat first on the day.
  • Each of the three previous T20I encounters between South Africa and Sri Lanka in South Africa have been won by the team to lose the toss on the day, with Sri Lanka snatching up two wins in that span (L1).
  • Sri Lanka have won their last three T20I fixtures on the bounce against South Africa; though, the spoils are split at five wins apiece across all their previous 10 clashes in the format.
