1st ODI Sri Lanka vs South Africa – Sri Lanka XI

Sri Lanka's Dinesh Chandimal
  • Both Avishka Fernando and Dinesh Chandimal are the only pair to have success opening partnership in the recently concluded T20 Tournament.

  • Kamindu Mendis will replace Ramesh Mendis since Sri Lanka would want an extra batsman than a bowler since they have other off-spinners like Dhananjaya De Silva, Charith Asalanka plus Kamindu Mendis himself who can also bowl left-arm orthodox.
