Namibia vs Sri Lanka – ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Betting Tips

Namibia will face Sri Lanka in the match four of the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup’s qualifying round at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Monday. 

The game will be an important one for both teams who will be eager to start their campaign on a positive note to increase their chances of cementing their spot in the Super 12s. 

This will be the first time when both teams will face off in a 20-over contest and therefore, the match will be historic in its nature as well. 

Namibia Form and Team news: 

Namibia will be coming in this match as underdogs, largely because they will be up against former world champions in the T20 format and who are also a Test-playing nation. 

Even then, the management will be hoping for a good show from the players on the big stage against one of the big teams around. 

Namibia’s last two years record will also serve as a confidence booster for the players as well as the management as they’ve won 11 out of 15 matches played with just four defeats. 

In the batting department, the minnows will be heavily relying on top-order batter Craig Williams, captain Gerhard Erasmus, right-hander Stephan Baard and all-rounder JJ Smit to score bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to defend. 

The presence of former South Africa all-rounder David Wiese, who is now eligible to play for Namibia, will be a major boost for all the players in the contingent. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Jan Frylinck, Smit, Ben Shikongo along with the spin duo of Bernard Scholtz, Michau du Preez to produce timely breakthroughs. 

Sri Lanka Form and Team news: 

Despite their recent struggles in all forms of cricket, Sri Lanka will enter Monday’s contest as firm favorites. 

The Islanders’ form in the last two years in the 20-over format has been nothing short of a disaster where they managed to win just three matches and suffered 16 defeats in 20 outings. 

Those number will definitely be a cause of concern for the management as well as the players who will be hoping to see a much better display this time around. 

In the batting department, Sri Lanka will be heavily relying on hard-hitting wicketkeeper-batter Kusal Perera, opener Avishka Fernando, veteran Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva and captain Dasun Shanaka to score bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Lahiru Kumara, Dushmantha Chameera, Chamika Karunaratne, Binura Fernando along with the spin trio of Akila Dananjaya, Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva and De Silva to dismantle the opposition’s batting lineup.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Both teams will enter the contest hoping for a bright start. Despite having opposite performances over the last two years, Sri Lanka still look a far solid unit compared to their rivals who are still learning the art of competing at the highest lever. 

Therefore, the prediction is for the Islanders to register a comfortable win on Monday. 

Tip 1: Craig Williams to continue his excellent form for Namibia

Middle-order batsman has been a consistent performer for Namibia in the T20 format. Since October 2019, Craig Williams topped the batting charts for Namibia in the T20 Format. In 15 matches played, Williams has accumulated 423 runs at an average of 30.21 with four half-centuries to his name. So we can expect middle-order batsman Craig Williams to score 20 runs or more against Sri [email protected].

Tip 2: Dushmantha Chameera lead the bowling attack for Sri Lanka

Pacer Dushmantha Chameera has been a consistent performer for Sri Lanka in the shortest format of the game. The 29-year old has managed to deliver crucial breakthroughs with the new-ball.

In 12 T20Is, Dushmantha Chameera has claimed 15 wickets at an economy rate of 6.55. So we are expecting pacer Dushmantha Chameera to take one wicket or more against [email protected].
