In the 25th match of the 2021 T20 World Cup, South Africa (SA) and Sri Lanka (SL) will meet at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah on Saturday.

South Africa (SA) started its campaign with a defeat to Australia. However, they rebounded by defeating the West Indies by eight wickets in their next match.

The Proteas have a first class bowling lineup that can upset any punch lineup in the world. So it will be interesting how the inconsistent SL fights against them.

Meanwhile, Australia halted Sri Lanka’s winning streak in the T20 World Cup. The Lankan Lions started the tournament with four straight wins – three in the qualifiers and one in the Super 12. They will now look to get back on their winning ways against in-form South Africa on Saturday.

On that note, here are three players you can choose as captain or deputy captain of your Dream11 team for the SA vs SL competition.


#3 Wanindu Hasaranga (SL)

Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh - 2021 Men's T20 World Cup
Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh – Men’s T20 World Cup 2021

Wanindu Hasaranga has a total of eight wickets in five matches in the tournament so far. He created a lot of impact with the ball in his hand. His miserable spells turned matches upside down for his team.

Furthermore, he was promoted to hit rank against a squad, and lived up to his captain’s expectations with a hit 71 times. A multi-level person like Hasaranga should be a good double choice in your eleventh.


#2 Aiden Markram (SA)

South Africa vs West Indies - ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021

Aiden Markram, one of the most consistent players in the South African national team, will be looking forward to facing Sri Lanka. He has all the shots in his arsenal, and he’s a player to watch out for.

He scored 91 points in two rounds with Willow in the ongoing 2021 T20 World Cup. He is expected to roll his arm as well, while helping the wicket spin the bowling. Part-time breaks may be beneficial to his side.


#1 Enrich Nortjee (SA)

South Africa vs England - 3rd T20 International

Confronting Anrich Nortje is a tough proposition for anyone in the world right now. He threw the fastest combined delivery of the 2021 T20 World Cup – 153 km / h. He’s also taken three wickets in two matches so far.

He is expected to shoot all cylinders against the relatively weak SL team. His lines and lengths have been perfect in the constant competition, so SL Warriors might find it hard to stand up to him.
