Start of Innings
Start of South Africa Innings. Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the second Twenty20 between Sri Lanka and South Africa. It is very windy out in the middle which could cause problems for some of the bowlers. The Proteas lead the series 1-0 and they will look to wrap it all up this evening, but Sri Lanka will not make it easy for the visitors. South Africa are unchanged whilst Sri Lanka have made two changes. Dilshan and Jeevan Mendis have been left out and in comes Mahela Jayawardene and Nuwan Kulasekara. Stay tuned as we are minutes away from the start.
