The Netherlands upstaged West Indies in a thriller to announce their arrival into the Super Sixes but could be hitting a roadblock here. Sri Lanka have been the ‘team to beat’ in this competition and will not be taking things easy. The form of their spinners could play a crucial part in the game here. I am putting my money on the Sri Lankan openers to post the highest opening partnership of the match. Keep an eye on the individual markets for Wanindu Hasaranga to be the best Sri Lankan bowler.

  • The Netherlands have conceded the most runs for the opening partnership in all 3 matches against Sri Lanka (ODIs)
  • Sri Lanka have scored the highest opening partnership of the match in their last 4 matches (ODIs)
  • Wanindu Hasaranga has taken the most wickets for Sri Lanka in 3 of their last 4 matches (ODIs)
  • Bas de Leede has taken at least 2 wickets in 3 of his last 4 matches (ODIs)

Head to Head


The Netherlands and Sri Lanka have played each other in three ODIs so far. All three have been won by the Lankans, and the last of those matches was played in 2006.

Netherlands Form


Netherlands qualified for the Super Six stage second in Group A behind Zimbabwe with three wins and a loss. That included a stunning win in the Super Over against West Indies in their last match.

The Dutch have benefited from the batting form of Scott Edwards (217) and Max O’Dowd (211) with the captain Edwards scoring three 50+ scores in the tournament.

Bowling has been about the pacers Bas de Leede (seven) and Logan van Beek (six wickets) while Vikramjit Singh (four) has been a surprise package. It could come down to their batting prowess if the Netherlands want to spring a surprise.

Netherlands Team News


The Netherlands may have to decide between keeping Vivian Kingma in the playing XI or recalling Ryan Klein.

Sri Lanka Form


Sri Lanka have gone unbeaten in the tournament with four comprehensive wins, to top Group B in the competition. They carry four points to the Super Sixes and are strong favourites to progress to the final.

The Lions have seen their openers stay among the runs with Dimuth Karunaratne (223) and Pathum Nissanka (189) amassing two 50+ scores each.

It is with the ball though where Sri Lanka have been ruthless. On slow pitches, Wanindu Hasaranga (18) has been relentless with three five-wicket hauls in the tournament.

Sri Lanka Team News


Sri Lanka have not found any reason to change their playing XI in the tournament so far and could go with the same team once again.

Verdict

Netherlands have proven to be a tough customer but Sri Lanka are a different ball game altogether. It is the opening partnership that looks lucrative with the Lankans expected to rule that segment. Keep an eye on the individual markets also, with Wanindu Hasaranga’s form quite interesting to be backed for another good haul.
