Netherlands vs Sri Lanka ODI World Cup


The Netherlands could be plotting another upset when they come up against the winless Sri Lankan side in the ICC ODI World Cup. This match #19 will be played at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on October 21, Saturday in the morning, IST time.

It could be a surprise for some that the Netherlands are starting this match above Sri Lanka, who are the only team yet to win in this tournament. The market still believes that the Lankans are hot favourites to win, which is why the odds are heavily stacked in their favour. I am putting my money on the Lankan openers to post the highest opening partnership of the match.

  • Netherlands have conceded the highest o/p in their last 2 matches (ODIs)
  • Netherlands have also conceded the highest o/p in 4 of their 5 matches against Sri Lanka (ODIs)
  • Sri Lanka posted the highest o/p in 7 of their last 12 matches (ODIs)
  • Sri Lanka have won all 5 matches against the Netherlands (ODIs)

Head to Head


The Netherlands and Sri Lanka have played each other in five ODIs so far with the Islanders winning all five games.

The last time these sides met was in the World Cup qualifier in Zimbabwe in June -  July 2023, when the Lankans won by 21 runs and 128 runs.

Netherlands Form


Netherlands have two points from three matches and are 8th in the standings. Those points came from their surprise win over South Africa by 38 runs, although they lost by 81 runs against Pakistan and by 99 runs to New Zealand.

The win against South Africa came in a rain-hit match reduced to 43 overs. Captain Scott Edwards with an aggregate of 108 runs has been their best bet with the bat.

Bowling has been about Bas de Leede who has seven wickets in the tournament, while Paul van Meekeren has been impressive too with five wickets.

Netherlands Team News


Netherlands are likely to retain the same team that won them the match against South Africa.

Sri Lanka Form


Sri Lanka are bottom of the points with no points from their three matches. They lost to South Africa by 102 runs, to Pakistan by six wickets and to Afghanistan by five wickets.

The Islanders have been enjoying the batting exploits of Kusal Mendis (207 runs, SR 156.81) while their opener Pathum Nissanka has clocked a couple of fifties.

Bowling is their problematic area with only one bowler taking more than two wickets in the tournament, which was Dilshan Madushanka who took seven scalps.

Sri Lanka Team News


Sri Lanka are hit by injuries in the squad that has already ruled out their regular captain Dasun Shanaka. They could be playing the same XI though, unless someone is injured at the last minute.

Verdict

The Netherlands have been the talk of town with an amazing win over South Africa. That must have given them enough confidence to take on Sri Lanka. Although it makes this match an interesting one, but I am staying away from picking a winner here. Instead, I am focusing on the openers of Sri Lanka, who have been scoring well in this tournament. Back the Lankan openers to post the highest opening partnership.
