Sri Lanka regular skipper Angelo Mathews remains in doubt for the final group game in the 2016 World Twenty20 tournament in New Delhi today.
Mathews carried the bat through in the previous encounter against England despite a hamstring injury and scored 73 off 54 deliveries.
However the Lankans fell short of 10 runs and were eliminated from the tournament.
In the absence of the regular skipper, wicketkeeper batsman Dinesh Chandimal is expected to lead the former Champions against the South Africans.
Chandimal also led the team during the recently concluded 3 match T20 series in India.
The captain’s injury could also make way for Shehan Jayasuriya, who could grab his second cap of the tournament.
