Sri Lanka vs Netherlands – ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Betting Tips

Sri Lanka and Netherlands will lock horns in the 12th match of the 2021 Indian Premier League to be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Friday.

In the previous game, Sri Lanka registered a comprehensive win over Ireland, courtesy excellent contributions from Pathum Nissanka, Wanindu Hasaranga and Mahesh Theekshana. With this result, Sri Lanka are currently lying at the top of the table in the Group A of the competition.

On the other hand, Netherland suffered a shocking defeat at the hands of Namibia. Skipper Pieter Seelaar will be hoping that the side can deliver a decent show in this dead rubber. Due to net-run rate of -1.240, Netherland don’t have a chance of qualifying for the next stage of the competition.

In 2014 T20 World Cup, Sri Lanka registered a comprehensive nine-wicket win over Netherlands. 

Sri Lanka Form and Team News

After notching up comfortable victories over Namibia and Ireland, Sri Lanka would be looking to make it three in a row against Netherlands.

In the batting department, the onus will be on the openers Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Perera, middle-order trio of Wanindu Hasaranga, Avishka Fernando and Bhanuka Rajapaksa to deliver the bulk of the runs.

Experienced players like Kusal Perera and Dinesh Chandimal have struggled to produce decent scores so far in this T20 World Cup. The team management will be hoping that the duo can get back amongst the runs against Netherlands.

In the bowling department, the side will be relying on the pace trio of Lahiru Kumara, Dushmantha Chameera and Chamika Karunaratne to deliver timely breakthroughs with the new-ball.

The spin duo of Mahesh Theekshana and Wanindu Hasaranga have put in excellent performances and not allowed the opposition to score easy runs in the middle over of the innings.
