The two teams will face each other in the penultimate game of the tournament’s league stage.
Neither Sri Lanka, nor South Africa has managed to open their account at the Commonwealth Games 2022, and the upcoming fixture will not benefit either of the two teams. Having lost two matches, one each against England and New Zealand, South Africa and Sri Lanka are placed in the bottom half of their group’s points table.
Thus, the two teams have already been knocked out of the semi-finals race of the mega event. They will lock horns in the 11th match of the CWG 2022 group stage. Sri Lanka put up a good bowling performance against England and added pressure on the team, but the English players tackled it well. On the other hand, South Africa has had a dismal outing for the past month as they lost all the international matches they played in the white-ball format.
SA-W vs SL-W Pitch Report
The Edgbaston surface has been a batter-friendly pitch. The pacers will be benefitted more than the spinners, and they’ll try to make the best out of it. The game might see some good amount of runs being scored if the batters manage to get a hold of the conditions and maintain their place on the crease for a long time.

SA-W vs SL-W, 11th T20I Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter
South Africa have never seen a batter like Laura Wolvaardt. The way she aces the cover drive is worth watching. Even though she has not been in form at the event so far, she’s a run machine. She would look to pile up as many runs as possible to keep her side in a comfortable position in order to bag the first victory
Probable best bowler
Currently the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with six scalps to her name, Ranaweera has rarely gone wicketless in a game. She has always been in the picture, and would look to continue her dominance even against South Africa to end her CWG stint on a high note.
