OVAL – Mighty South Africa will face shaky Sri Lanka in their ICC Champions Trophy 2017 opener today, June 3 at the at Kennington Oval, London.
The match is scheduled to begin at to 10:30 local time (09:30 GMT | 14:30 PKT).
For Sri Lanka, this would be a huge game for making an impression on the rest of the team how they have prepared themselves for the tournament.
But, missing their skipper, the role model, it would be very testing for the bunch of young guns, full of talent to channel their skills to make an impact on the game.
In the absence of Mathews, the role of Malinga and Chandimal will be vital to lead the guys in the field.
On the other hand, South Africa are as ready for the tournament as any other team could be. They are a perfect combination, having varieties and depth in both batting and bowling departments.
Not to mention their fielding standards, they are one of the best fielding sides on the planet earth.
