SL vs SA 2nd ODI Dream11 Prediction: Having had some troubles in the past in the World Super League, Sri Lanka has now won two games in a row. They first beat India in the last game of the bilateral series, and they have now taken a one-match lead against South Africa. South Africa, on the other hand, is missing some of their key players because of giving them rest or injuries or covid-19 protocols, which is costing them in this series.
Sri Lanka looks in a good position to win this series. Their players are getting them the desired results, better than desired. They are winning matches in the limited-overs format against the biggest teams in the world, which is a great deal for them. They would now look to seal the deal in the second match. All they have to do is not get overwhelmed, and stick to what they are doing best.
South Africa might miss some of their important players, but they still are a team to give good competition. They were very close to winning the last match, but Sri Lanka was slightly better on the day. They should not worry too much about the first match and focus on leveling the series in the second ODI.

Heinrich Klaasen, Dinesh Chandimal, Temba Bavuma, Avishka Fernando (C), Rassie van der Dussen (VC), Aiden Markram, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dhananjaya de Silva, Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Shamsi, Kagiso Rabada
Heinrich Klaasen- He got to a decent start in the first match but could not convert it into something big. Klaasen is a good keeper and is handy with the bat too. He can change gears at any point, which is what can be expected from a middle-order batsman.
Dinesh Chandimal- He did not get a chance in the first match, but he can return to the side to fill in some performance gaps. He is an experienced player and does not deserve to warm benches in important matches like these.
Temba Bavuma- He faced a thumb injury in the last match, but should be fine before the start of the next one. He got a good start last time and had he been able to play, South Africa could have won the match.
Avishka Fernando- Avishka Fernando finally converted his good start into a bigger score. He scored a century in the first match which allowed Sri Lanka to get in a good position and defend their total.
Rassie van der Dussen- A promising talent who has often shown his match-winning abilities but has never been very consistent. He too got a good start last time but needs to convert them into bigger scores.
Aiden Markram- He is yet another senior player in the South Africa Squad and will have a responsibility to handle the pressure. Along with Bavuma, he added a hundred-run partnership and went on to score 96 runs in the innings. He will have to keep his form intact in the next match.
Wanindu Hasaranga- He has been the talk of the town since the series against India. Based on his all-around performance in that series, he has been picked in the IPL. He did not have a good game last time but will look forward to changing that in the next one.
Dhananjaya de Silva- Dhananjaya de Silva’s performance with the bat and the ball has been on and off. But this time he looked in a much better shape to make the most out of the game and gave a good all-around performance. He was one of the reasons Sri Lanka won that match.
Keshav Maharaj- This wicket is good for spinners, and Keshav Maharaj bowled decently in the first match. He got two wickets in the match. He should be able to continue this in the next match.
Tabraiz Shamsi- He did not do well in the first match, but he is the no. 1 spinner in the world right now and should be able to perform the way he always does in white-ball cricket.
Kagiso Rabada- Rabad produces genuine pace, and these conditions might not suit him well. But the conditions would not bother him that much, he should be able to extract some wickets now and then like he did in the first match.
