Sri Lanka v South Africa Preview and Betting Tips – Cricket World Cup

Betting preview and tips for the Cricket World Cup clash between Sri Lanka and South Africa.
Form Labs  |  24th June 2019

Victory here for Sri Lanka in their Cricket World Cup clash with South Africa will blow the top four race wide open. Sri Lanka got back to winning ways last time out with thrilling win over England and if they can follow that up with another win at the Riverside Ground, England could very well find themselves outside of the top four on run rate.  Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game to help guide you into scoring the winning runs.

World Cup To Forget

It’s been a World Cup to forget for South Africa as their batting once again let them down as they fell well short of chasing Pakistan’s 308 total.

Their only victory was against Afghanistan when they had to chase down a small target, otherwise they’ve surpassed 300 just once and Bangladesh still chased that down.

They’re officially eliminated, whereas Sri Lanka still have it all to play for after they beat England, and the hosts then lost next time out to Australia.

Sri Lanka Back In The Hunt

Victory here would put them level on points with England and with plenty of motivation, and against a Proteas side that look mentally finished, Sri Lanka look overpriced.

The Lions have had two wash outs and their two victories have come against England and Afghanistan in low scoring affairs, so their batsman haven’t had too much time in the middle.

Sri Lanka v South Africa Betting Tips

Their bowlers got them over the line in both of their victories and is clearly their strength. Like their opponents, none of their players have reached a hundred in this tournament, so our second bet is for no century to be scored.

Finally, the South African line up has struggled against spin throughout. Although, Lasith Malinga took the headlines from Sri Lanka’s victory against England, Dhananjaya de Silva bowled very well for figures of 3-32 from his eight overs.

Add in his ability to score runs lower down the order, and we’ll have a small wager on him in the man of the match market.

Sri Lanka Win at 2.75

A Hundred to be Scored in the Match – No at 1.95

0.5pts Dhananjaya de Silva Man of the Match at 21.00
