The two-match Test series between South Africa and Sri Lanka is all set to get underway with the first Test on Saturday, December 26 (Dec. 26-30) at the SuperSport Park in Centurion. The match is scheduled to start at 1:30pm, IST.
The Boxing Day game marks the first long-format game both sides in over eight months. The hosts come into the game after a 3-0 loss in the T20I series against a visiting England side. While Sri Lanka haven’t played an international fixture since resuming cricket in July 2020. However, the rigour of playing in a five-day game would definitely test both the teams.
In the previous encounter between the two sides last year, Sri Lanka became the first Asian Test side to win a series in South Africa. They won the first Test chasing 304 at Durban and the second game at Port Elizabeth by eight wickets.
The upcoming series between both sides is also in the ICC World Test Championship cycle, both South Africa and Sri Lanka are potentially out of contention for a place in the playoffs and it will only be a series for pride.
