South Africa vs Sri Lanka 1st Test Prediction Who Will Win Dec 26-30, 2016
South Africa will win
Batsman Theunis de Bruyn and left-arm seamer Wayne Parnell are the main augmentations toward the South Africa squad from the visit to Australia and changes to the XI from the Adelaide Test appear unlikely.Meanwhile, uncapped snappy Vikum Sanjaya was the amaze name in the Sri Lanka squad for the arrangement and chief Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal and Dushmantha Chameera return.
South Africa’s Test side began the year in a terrible space, pondering wounds and lacking cohesiveness. As the year finds some conclusion, it has figured out how to turn both frame and fortune around with late arrangement wins against New Zealand at home and Australia away.
On Monday (December 26), it will have an opportunity to expand on its late picks up as it goes up against Sri Lanka in the first of three Tests in the Boxing Day challenge in Port Elizabeth.
It will be Faf du Plessis’ first amusement as general Test chief after AB de Villiers, who is as yet recouping from an elbow harm, chose not long ago that it would be in the more noteworthy interests of the group on the off chance that he ventured down. Du Plessis will be the side’s third commander in the space of one year after Hashim Amla surrendered in January, yet he has figured out how to arouse the side and looks a more sure batsman, floated as opposed to loaded by the duty.
Notwithstanding de Villiers’ proceeded with nonappearance, the side will be without Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, both pacemen nursing wounds.

Just three Sri Lanka batsmen have achieved triple figures (Thilan Samaraweera accomplishing it twice in the latest visit), and the island’s best crease bowler, Chaminda Vaas, could guarantee just 11 wickets at 47.45 in eight innings.
Muttiah Muralitharan maybe has the best South Africa record, with 35 scalps at 26.02, however then he was, you know, Murali.
Perhaps it is a direct result of this reiteration of woeful returns that South Africa are peppy in front of their mid year’s sole arrangement. They additionally unmistakably have a prevalent pace assault, a savvier batting request, the more capable handling unit, and most likely better hair styles, speedier autos and higher string tally bed sheets.
But then, there is trust in the guests’ camp – not all of which is the required but rather lost pre-arrangement swagger. They think they’ve opened something exceptional in the previous six months. They think they have a talented center request. Also, they think their assault, if not overwhelming or damaging, is at any rate better than average (the length of the quicks can remain fit).
