South Africa vs Sri Lanka T20 world cup 2021 All eyes on Quinton de Kock as South Africa take on sluggish Sri Lanka

Sharjah. Quinton de Kock, who withdrew from the previous match due to refusal of symbolic support to take one knee in the campaign against racism, Super 12 match of T20 World Cup between South Africa and Sri Lanka (ICC T20 World Cup 2021) can take the field on Saturday. De Kock had made himself available for the remaining matches of the T20 World Cup by issuing a statement on Thursday. He had said that if getting down on his knee helps in educating others, then he has no problem in doing so. De Kock said that he was called a racist for not doing so before the match against West Indies, which caused him a lot of pain. South Africa won this match by eight wickets.

De Kock’s return will strengthen South Africa’s top order and the left-handed batsman himself will try to silence the critics by playing big innings. South Africa captain Temba Bavuma has scored 12 and two runs in the World Cup so far and will be eager to return to form. South Africa have batsmen like Reeza Hendrix, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram and the reliable David Miller who can tear apart any attack and Sri Lanka is no exception. South African batsmen, however, will have to be on guard against Sri Lankan spinners Wanindu Hasaranga and Mahish Teekshana.

South African bowlers had a great performance against West Indies. Fast bowler Dwayne Pretorius took three wickets in this match. They have two of the best death overs bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Enrique Norcia and their role will be crucial in the next match as well. Keshav Maharaj and Tabrez Shamsi, both the South African spinners, will also have to play an important role.

Sri Lanka will have to start afresh after forgetting the seven-wicket loss at the hands of Australia. Charit Aslanka’s good form is a positive aspect for him. Kusal Perera, who started well against Australia, needs to play a big innings. The frequent failure of openers Pathum Nisanka and Avishka Fernando will be a matter of concern for the team management. The role of the flamboyant Wanindu Hasaranga and Bhanuka Rajapakse will also be important.
