Sri Lanka vs South Africa Head to Head Record in ODIs: The SportsRush presents before you the Head to Head records for SL and SA.
The second warm-up match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between Sri Lanka and South Africa at Cardiff tomorrow. Both the teams will be eager to get their combination right ahead of their first individual match of the all-important tournament.
Persistent rain in Scotland didn’t aid Sri Lanka in making optimum use of their two-match series against Scotland. Led by a new captain in Dimuth Karunaratne, the island nation has more to gain from these warm-up matches.

Sri Lanka and South Africa had last met a couple of months ago during Sri Lanka’s tour of South Africa. In the fifth and the last ODI at Cape Town, the hosts had registered victory by 41 runs (D/L Method) to whitewash Sri Lanka 5-0.
While Sri Lanka gained a significant amount of confidence after whitewashing (2-0) South Africa in South Africa, the latter would be backing their stellar overall record in ODIs.
