Sri Lanka vs South Africa 2015 CWC Quarter Final Live Streaming

Watch SL vs SA Live Streaming
A team that is chasing a world cup win since 2007 world cup final whereas the other team has been chasing the chokers tag since they started playing in the world cups. Sri Lanka reached finals of 2007 and 2011 world cup but failed to win. South Africa always played exceptionally well in the group stage but failed to win a single match in the knock outs. ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 1st quarter final will feature two such heavy teams that would kick off the knock out stage on the right note. Watch this match live today on Star Sports HD in India with live Hindi and English commentary. The live streaming and telecast will begin from 9am IST.

The match will be played at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). The captain that wins the toss would certainly like to bat first and post a big total on the board. But every captain has a unique strategy not only for knock outs but all the matches. So you never know what would be the likely decision for a captain after winning the toss.

Last eight matches between these two teams were played in Sri Lanka. Seven out of the eight times team batting first won the match. Similar is the situation here at the SCG.

Overall both the teams have almost equal wins against each other. South Africa is just one behind in the head to head stat. In the last 16 matches, both the teams have won eight each.

Mahela Jayawardene seems to be out of form apart from his ton against Afghanistan. It doesn't take too long for such a quality batsmen to regain his form. But his stats show that he averages very low against South Africans. So probably a tough team for him to get his form back.

Kumar Sangakkara is about to retire from International cricket but he seems to be at the peak of his forms. He scored four consecutive centuries which itself is a record. Apart from this he is just one stumping away from a record 100 stumpings in ODI.

There are many key players that would feature in the match. Lasith Malinga has done well against South Africa so he would be an ace for the Lankans in their relatively weaker bowling attack. South Africa has an upper hand in this department with bowlers like Tahir, Morkel, Abbott and Steyn. 

Batting department for both the teams is equally matches. Dilshan, Thirimanne, Sangakkara, Mathews, Jayawardene add a lot of depth to the Lankan batting while AB de Villiers, Amla, Faf du Plessis, Miller and Duminy add a lot of strength to the South African line up.

A lot is on stake for these two teams. Stay tuned with us for regular updates on world cup. Don't forget India vs Bangladesh quarter final live streaming will also be available on Star Sports soon.
