Sri Lanka women have arrived in South Africa as the underdogs, having never won a series in the ‘Rainbow Nation’ before. However, they put on spirited performances and won the recently concluded T20I series despite being 0-1 down. This has given them the belief that they can also win in the ODI format. On the other hand, South Africa may be dejected after the series loss in the shorter format, but they have been in red-hot form in ODIs. Hence, the hosts will be looking to put up some dominating performances in the upcoming matches to get things back on track.

The Buffalo Park pitch is typically favourable for batting, and the smaller boundary dimensions are likely to play a significant role in producing a high-scoring match. Both teams will probably want to bowl first, as no score is entirely safe in these conditions. Besides, the weather in East London is expected to be sunny and bright, with no anticipated interruptions during the match.
