Head to Head

Sri Lanka beat Netherlands by nine wickets in their only previous meeting. That match took place in 2014.

Netherlands Form

Netherlands come into this match knowing that they can no longer qualify for the Super 12. While they are always capable of an upset, they were never expected to make it to the next round.

They lost their opening fixture to Ireland by seven wickets after only scoring 106 runs. Max O’Dowd scored 51 of those runs.

Netherland then went on to lose against Namibia, a match they were expected to win. Max O’Dowd was again the standout, scoring 70 runs in a 164-run total.

Namibia however chased the runs down with an over to spare to win by six wickets.

Netherlands Team News

The Netherland’s batsmen have been largely disappointing bar for Max O’Dowd. Much were expected for them coming into this tournament and they will hope to at least leave the tournament with a performance to be proud of.

Sri Lanka Form

Sri Lanka have already secured qualification for the Super 12 stage with two wins from their opening two matches. In their opener they thrashed Namibia by seven wickets.

Ireland were expected to be Sri Lanka’s toughest opposition in the group but they proved too strong. After a slow start in which Sri Lanka last three wickets early, Pathum Nissanka and Wanindu Hasaranga rescued the cause to take them to 171 runs.

Maheesh Theekshana took 3-17 in four overs as Ireland crumbled for 101 runs. That secured a convincing 70-run win.

Sri Lanka Team News

Despite having qualified, Sri Lanka will want to keep a similar side as they look to build momentum and form before the big guns join in the Super 12 stage.
