July 7 (CNMSPORTS) - South Africa team will play two test matches on the Sri Lanka tour starting from 12th July.
Sri Lanka take on South Africa in an upcoming two-Test series with important team ranking points at stake, even though the final result will not impact the positions on the points table.
If sixth-ranked Sri Lanka are able to pull off a 2-0 victory over second-ranked South Africa, they will go up to 97 points but remain behind England on decimal points. In such a scenario, South Africa will lose six points but remain ahead of third-placed Australia on decimal points. On the other hand, a 2-0 series win for South Africa will help them gain three points but they will still remain 10 points adrift of top-ranked India.
