South Africa vs Sri Lanka Preview and live score: ICC Champions Trophy 2009

The first match of Group B will be commenced on at 14:30 local on September 22, at Centurion. The opening ceremony will be taken part with he match to the tow teams of B group. The will be the best time for the sub continent cricket fans and the match will be showed live thorough Star cricket. A close competition will enjoy in the first match of the Champions Trophy.

ICC Champions trophy is familiar as the second world cup cricket over the world. From this view it will be very prestigious for the host because they always play a stress cricket when they reach in semi-finals but they won the first title of Champions Trophy held in Bangladesh in 1998.

South Africa was in the number one ranked odi cricket team just one week ago. So it could assume that they played positively in the last few tours especially home and abroad. As a host country South Africa will get extra support from all sides at the same they are in pressure to play a good cricket for their country.

I was shocked to see that Sri Lanka did not visit anytime after 2007 even South Africa. They last meet at the time of ICC World Cup in 2006/07 that was held in West Indies and in 2006 at Ahmedabad during the 5th season of champion trophy. Both the times South Africa won the matches.
