The group stage of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup is now over, and it has all led to the Quarterfinals in the Knockout Stage. In the first match, South Africa is going to be taking on Sri Lanka in the hopes of advancing, and you’ll be able to watch all of the action streaming live online.
First off, Sri Lanka finished the group stage with a record of 4-2 in Pool A, and they looked very impressive. Even though they opened up the entire World Cup with a loss to New Zealand, they only lost one more game, and it was to Australia. Their victories came over Afghanistan, Bangladesh, England, and Scotland.
Over in Pool B, South Africa also finished with a record of 4-2 with their losses coming to India and Pakistan. They picked up victories over Zimbabwe, West Indies, Ireland, and United Arab Emirates.
It was Sunday afternoon when the Quarterfinals for the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup were confirmed, with Sri Lanka and South Africa being the first match after pool play, per ICC-Cricket.
As of now, South Africa is looked at as the favorite, but IBN Live noted that they shouldn’t forget the expertise and history of Sri Lanka. It is known that Sri Lanka may not be seen as the favorite, but many have “seen people raise their game” and “seen people raise the whole team.”
When the pressure is on, Sri Lanka is ready to step up to the challenge, and South Africa will need to be fully aware. This will set the bar for the Knockout Stage of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, and both teams want to set an example.
The match between South Africa vs. Sri Lanka is scheduled to begin at 11:00 local time (03:30 GMT) on Wednesday, March 18, at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney, Australia.
ESPN will begin online streaming at 11 p.m. EST on Tuesday, March 17, but that is just one option to watch South Africa vs. Sri Lanka live. ESPN does charge a fee to watch all of the matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, so be aware of that.

You will be able to enjoy any of these streaming options to watch the match live, and you won’t miss a moment of the action.
