Team Previews

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka comes into this match aiming to find consistency. Despite some recent setbacks, including losing two of their last five T20Is, they showed resilience by scoring 174 for 7 and winning their last match by 28 runs against Bangladesh. The key player for Sri Lanka will be Kusal Mendis, who is in superb form. Watch out for Wanindu Hasaranga, who takes over the captaincy from Dasun Shanaka, bringing a fresh dynamic to the team.

Predicted Playing XI:

  • Pathum Nissanka
  • Kusal Mendis (wk)

  • Angelo Mathews
  • Dasun Shanaka
  • Maheesh Theekshana
  • Wanindu Hasaranga

The Netherlands, on the other hand, have been struggling with their form, coming off three consecutive losses in a tri-series featuring Ireland and Scotland. Their batting lineup, featuring key players like Max ODowd and Vikramjeet Singh, needs to step up. The Dutch will rely on their bowlers, especially Logan van Beek and Paul van Meekeren, to stifle the strong Sri Lankan batting order.
