Sri Lanka will take on the Netherlands in Match 9 of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 at Simonds Stadium in Geelong on Thursday, October 20.

The Islanders need to win this contest in order to stay alive in the competition following their defeat against Namibia in the opening game. Shanaka & Co. have already received setbacks as their two pacers, Dilshan Madushanka and Dushmantha Chameera, have been ruled out of the tournament.

Netherlands, on the other hand, are having an excellent tournament. So far, they have won both their games – against UAE and Namibia, and if the Dutch side manage to defeat Sri Lanka, they will be quite close to entering the Super 12s.

Pitch report:

The surface at the Simonds Stadium tends to get slower as the game progresses. Batters need to spend some time before going for the full monty. Team winning the toss will look to bat first at this ground.

Probable XIs:

Sri Lanka: Dasun Shanaka (c), Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Charith Asalanka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Pramod Madushan Liyanagamage, Binura Fernando, Maheesh Theekshana

Netherlands: Scott Edwards (c & wk), Max O’Dowd, Vikramjit Singh, Bas de Leede, Tom Cooper, Colin Ackermann, Roelof van der Merwe, Tim Pringle, Timm van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren

Match Prediction:

  • Sri Lanka wins the toss and bats first
  • Powerplay score: 45-50
  • Sri Lanka total: 160-170
