SL vs SA 3rd ODI Dream11 Prediction: The series did not turn out as it was expected to do. After the first match, Sri Lanka looked in good touch and had the ball in their court. If they would have continued to perform the way they did in the first match, they could have won the series. South Africa played at top of their game and adapted brilliantly to these conditions. The series is now tied one each. The team winning the match will also win the series.
Sri Lanka did not get to the mark they set for themselves in the previous few matches. They did not bowl well, and they were not able to perform with the bat as well. The third match will be very important for them, but to win it, they will have to bring back the standard of the game they have been playing for a while now.
South Africa regained their form in the last match by completely outplaying the opposition. They batted smartly in difficult conditions and also bowled to perfect effect. They will have to continue doing the same to have the upper hand in the series decider.

Wicket keepers | Sri Lanka vs South Africa
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.
Batsman | Sri Lanka vs South Africa
Janneman Malan- Malan is a fairly new player to the Soth African side and it is not fair to expect great performances every time he is on the field. In the last match, he scored an important century that came at a crucial time. He has gotten the trick to bat on this wicket and is expected to perform well in the decider.
Avishka Fernando- Avishka Fernando finally converted his good start into a bigger score in the first match. He scored a century in the match which allowed Sri Lanka to get in a good position and defend their total. He is important for his team to win matches and will have to step up in the third game.
Rassie van der Dussen- A promising talent who has often shown his match-winning abilities but has never been very consistent. He usually gets a good start but is not able to convert them into bigger scores. He will have to work on it to do better.
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 in the first game and went on to score 96 runs in the innings. He will have to produce similar innings in the last game.
Charith Asalanka- He has given some good performances in the past and in the last match too, he was their best batsman. Unfortunately, he could not get his team through. He would want to change that in the next game.
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 has not done what he did previously in this series. But that can change at any point.
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 in the first match. 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 two matches. He got two wickets in the first match, and one in the next match. Whether he gets more wickets this time is yet to be seen.
Tabraiz Shamsi- He is the no. 1 spinner in the world, and he proved why that is in the last match. He got a five-wicket haul and won the man of the match. He will be the key in these conditions to win South Africa the series.
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 two matches.
