Who Will Win _  A Final Sum Up Discussion ?

In cricket, there is always a chance of uncertainty. No one can say anything for sure in this game. It takes ten balls to bowled out the batting team, but it also takes fifty overs to end up the innings. We have discussed all the necessary things about both the teams. Srilankan team has a huge impact in their bowling line up. On the other hand, South Africa relies mainly on their batting line up. Though they also have a strong home ground and home crowd support, but when both these teams step into the field with different tactics then support of crowd will be of less importance.  These two different tactics of both the teams are going to make a suspense amongst all the cricket loving viewers. Spectators are wondering that what comes next and cannot say anything for sure about the MATCH PREDICTION
