South Africa vs Sri Lanka 1st Test Live Telecast Channel: The SportsRush presents before you the timing and live streaming details of the first SA vs SL Test.

The first Test match of the imminent Sri Lanka’s tour of South Africa is all set to be played in Centurion. Apart from the New Zealand vs Pakistan and Australia and India Tests, South Africa vs Sri Lanka will be the third Boxing Day Test commencing from tomorrow.

While South Africa resumed the sport at the highest level against England last month, Sri Lanka will be playing international cricket for the first time after the COVID-19 outbreak.

The last time South Africa and Sri Lanka played against each other in the longest format was last year when Sri Lanka had whitewashed (2-0) South Africa in South Africa. The visitors would undoubtedly be taking confidence from that victory. It is worth mentioning that the last two Test series between these two teams have both resulted in a similar manner.
