Sri Lanka will aim for nothing but a win to keep themselves alive in the ongoing World Cup when they take on South Africa at the Riverside Cricket Stadium today.

Sri Lanka vs South Africa: Lanka aim for survival against dejected Proteas

Sri Lanka are currently seventh in the standings with two wins and two no-results, but two points would take them straight up to fifth, just below England, who are themselves in a fight to make the last four now. Just like Pakistan's win over New Zealand opened up the tournament, same would happen if the Lankan Tigers manage to defeat the Proteas.

For that, Sri Lanka will hope for its players to come out with an inspiring performance as they did against England where they defended 233. Lasith Malinga will once again be the key for Sri Lanka's success in what is a do-or-die game for them.

South Africa, on the other hand, would aim to regain some lost pride with a consolation victory against Lanka. Since their debut in 1992, this has been the worst World Cup campaign for the Proteas as they have failed to go even past the group stage. With just a win from seven games, the Faf du Plessis led side are currently placed at the second last spot in the 10-team table.

However, with nothing to lose, South Africa will be eager to prove themselves by winning their remaining two matches and upset the teams that still stand a chance.

Sri Lanka vs South Africa: Dream 11 top picks

The Sri Lankans have a great set of players but they are struggling to find their foothold. From their team, you've got to pick Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Perera and Lasith Malinga. The players have a great synergy with one another and will look to win this game as their performance has not been up to the mark. The players will certainly put their best foot forward today.

South Africa too need to pull up their socks. Quinton de Kock is in form and has a great command over the field- he is one of the batters you have to pick. Hitting boundaries is no feat for him and he’ll certainly look to deliver again. From the bowling side, pick Imran Tahir and Kagiso Rabada- both of whom can read the pitch and put up a challenge for the batters on the other team. The South Africans have a strong bowling side so it would be wise to rely on these two to make the best of the pitch.
