ICC World Cup 2023 South Africa vs Sri Lanka - Match Schedule, Streaming Information, and More.

The ICC Men’s World Cup 2023 gears up for its fourth match, featuring South Africa led by Temba Bavuma and Sri Lanka under the captaincy of Dasun Shanaka. This thrilling encounter is set to take place at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on October 7, with the action scheduled to kick off at 2 PM.

Anticipation is high for this clash as Sri Lanka aims to bounce back from their disappointing performance in the 2023 Asia Cup final and their less-than-ideal warm-up games leading up to the World Cup. In their two warm-up matches against Bangladesh and Afghanistan, Sri Lanka faced defeat in both encounters.

Meanwhile, South Africa also faced a rocky start in the World Cup journey. Their initial warm-up game against Afghanistan was abandoned, and they suffered a loss in their second warm-up match against New Zealand.
