Sri Lanka will enter the stadium with a power packed spin department which will help the team at the Bangladesh pitch and they have Lasith Malinga to take care of the pace on almost any pitch on the planet. Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene bring class to the batting and with the help of Tilakaratne Dilshan, Sri Lanka has probably the best combinations any team can hope for.
South Africa has been blessed with talented players in every era and the like of Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, Dale Steyn and their star player, AB de Villiers are all live examples of it. When it comes to the world contest, no other team can do it better than South Africa but there is always something that goes wrong for them in the end.
Expect a clash of epic proportions with this match as two excellent and conditioned teams begin their journey in ICC World T20 2014.
