The Proteas have already won the series by winning the first two games. As of now, they are leading the test series by 2-0 and one more game is left to be played. They won the second match by 282 runs in Cape Town. After playing this game, Amla will become the eighth South African to play 100 test in the entire international career.
So far, he has made 7665 runs with 25 centuries in 99 tests. His top score stands at 311 not out against England in 2012. But, the 33-year-old cricketer has been seen struggling for the right form for a couple of months now. In the last five Tests, he has scored only a total of 195 runs, 12 innings with a ton, 9 without a 50.
As a result, his average has slipped below 50. It’s good for him that his teammates aren’t that much concerned else they would have replaced him. Everyone seems to have belief in him. RSA would be going for a whitewash with 3-0. On the other hand, Dhananjaya of Sri Lanka believes that SL can keep Amla once again quiet. They are counting on his bad form of play.
Till now in the competition, Sri Lankan batsmen have failed to score and pass 300 in the last four innings. They seem to have a problem with the seam movement on the South African pitches. There is not going to be any stoppage at the Wanderers as Stuart Broad took 6 wickets for just 17 runs for England last year at the same venue.
In the meantime, SA fast bowler Kyle Abbott shocked his teammates with the announcement that he has a Kolpak contract to play county cricket for Hampshire in England. The news shocked the team management too. As a result, the management canceled the contract of Abbott with the Cricket South Africa.
Soon after that, Abbott was replaced with Duanne Olivier at his place in the squad. However, there are speculations that Wayne Parnell will play at his place.
