Match Details

Sri Lanka Women vs South Africa Women, 8th March,
Group A

November 13, 2018, 5:30 AM IST

Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia


Historically, the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St Lucia is a better chasing ground. In limited-overs cricket, close to 60% of the games have been won by the team batting second. In fact, the lowest score defended here in T20Is is 150, which
says a lot about the ground.

The first game at this ground in this World T20 was washed out due to heavy rain and once again, rain is predicted on the day of the match.


Both Sri Lanka and South Africa haven't had the best of times in T20Is this year. While South Africa have won 7 out of their 15 T20Is this year, Sri Lanka have tasted victory in only 3 (out of 13) games. Both teams also lost their two practice games in the lead up to this World T20 as well

Sri Lanka's opening game against England was washed out and hence, they are on the board as far as the points table is concerned. They are coming off on
the back of a 0-4 drubbing against India and also, don't have a great record in World T20. A lot will depend on the skipper Chamari Atapattu who has been the star in this line-up.

On the other hand, South Africa have won just one T201 series since the 2016 World T20. They've largely struggled for consistency but the advantage for them
is that the core of the 2017 World Cup team has been retained
