The Netherlands vs Sri Lanka head to head record is a clean sweep favouring the team from the Island Nation.
Sri Lanka and the Netherlands have locked horns against each other a total of five times in ODIs, with the first match happening back in 2002.
The Netherlands vs Sri Lanka head to head record is being dominated by the latter who have won all five matches so far. Interestingly, the two teams are facing each other for the first time in the World Cup. However, the two teams faced in the ICC World Cup Qualifier earlier this year in Zimbabwe on two occasions.

The 19th match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup will be played between the Netherlands and Sri Lanka. The match is set to take place at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on October 21 (Saturday).
Interestingly, Sri Lanka is the only team to not win a match in this World Cup so far. They have lost all their three matches against South Africa, Pakistan and Australia. Moreover, their skipper Dasun Shanaka has also been ruled out of the tournament due to an injury while Kusal Mendis has been appointed the captain for the rest of the World Cup.
They are rooted to the bottom of the points table and are in a must-win situation now for the remaining six matches of the competition. One more loss will more or less knock them out of the World Cup. A good record against the Netherlands will give them hope and will be confident of adding two points to their tally.
Meanwhile, the Netherlands will be high on confidence thanks to their impeccable show against South Africa in the previous outing. The Dutch lost their first two matches – against Pakistan and New Zealand but roared back into the tournament with a comprehensive show against the Proteas. They are at the eighth position currently with two points to their name with only Afghanistan and Sri Lanka below them.

Netherlands vs Sri Lanka head to head team T20I records
The Netherlands and Sri Lanka have faced other in the shortest format of the sport on three occasions in the span of eight years. In all three matches, Sri Lanka have emerged victorious. All the three T20Is were played at the neutral venues – in Australia, Bangladesh and the UAE.
|24/03/2014||Sri Lanka||9 wickets||Chattogram|

The Netherlands were very close to beating Sri Lanka in their previous encounter in the T20 World Cup 2022. Despite Kusal Mendis scoring 79 runs off just 44 balls, they managed to restrict the team from the island nation to just 162 runs for the loss of six wickets. Paul van Meekeren and Bas de Leede bowled well to pick up two wickets each.
In response, Max O’Dowd fought a lone battle in the middle smashing an unbeaten 71 off just 53 balls. He didn’t get much of a support at all from the other end only for the Netherlands to reach 146 runs for the loss of nine wickets in their 20 overs. As expected, Wanindu Hasaranga was the best bowler for Sri Lanka with figures of 3/28 in his four overs.
