Sri Lanka vs UAE – Previews and Betting Tips

The Asia Cup champions learned the hard way that there can always be surprising opponents. Sri Lanka faced inexperienced Namibia in the tournament's opening game, or so everyone thought. Being asked to bat first, Namibia put up what seemed to be a ginormous score. Jan Fylinck starred with the bat, scoring 44. It should’ve been an easy run chase for Sri Lanka. However, their batting lineup collapsed. Namibia’s bowling line-up tore up the Lankan batsmen and bundled them out for a mere 108.

On the other hand, UAE just had the most disappointing outing in a T20 match. They played the Netherlands in their opening match-up and had a terrible batting collapse. Batting first, UAE got bundled out for a mere 111 courtesy of Bas de Leede’s 3/19.  In response, UAE did put up a great show with the ball but couldn’t contain the dutch batters. Junaid Siddique has been in sublime form and continued that by grabbing 3/24. However, UAE managed to take it to a final over thriller but ended up losing the match in the second last ball of the innings.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka will need to unite against the UAE to ensure a commanding win. They recently won the Asia cup defeating big nations like India and Pakistan which makes them title contenders for the tournament. In order to keep going, their batting firepower has to explode and get runs on the board. Bowlers need to bowl the right channel and get wickets for Sri Lanka to win the upcoming encounter. 

Talking about their batting line-up, Pathum Nissanka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa, in their last 10 innings, have gotten 248 and 241 runs, respectively. On the other hand, their spin twin, Wanidu Hasranga and Maheesh Theekshana have turned quite a few heads with their bowling. In their last 10 games, Wanidu Hasranga has 15 wickets under his belt, while Theekshana has a solid 9 wickets. These players are the ones to look out for in the upcoming encounter.

Squad: Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis(Wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Danushka Gunathilaka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dasun Shanaka(C), Wanidu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Pramod Madushan, Dushmantha Chameera, Maheesh Theekshana


It will take a lot out of UAE to win their upcoming match against Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is a strong side, and it’ll be difficult to contain them. However, UAE has a strong bowling line-up and can use good tactics to bundle them for a low score. They have a good batting line-up that just needs support from one another to get the runs on the board.

With respect to that, Muhammad Waseem has been in some extraordinary form. In the past 10 games, he has scored 419 runs at a strike rate of 143.49. Chirag Suri has come in very handy, amassing 262 runs in his previous 10 games. However, the star performer for UAE is Junai Siddique with the ball. He has 14 wickets to his name in the past 9 games and claimed a 5-wicket haul in a recent warm-up game. Sri Lanka will certainly need to watch out for these players as they two get ready to battle it out.

Squad: Chirag Suri, Muhammad Waseem, Kashif Daud, Vriitya Aravind(Wk), Zawar Farid, Basil Hameed, CP Rizwan(C), Aayan Afzal Khan, Palaniappan Meiyappan, Junaid Siddique, Zahoor Khan

Pitch and weather Conditions

The temperatures are predicted to be hovering around 21 degrees. As per the weather forecast, there is a 10% to no chance of precipitation on matchday. There will be humidity as high as 63%, which will be slightly uncomfortable during gameplay.

Meanwhile, the venue has its own favorites that it favors the most. The Pacers love bowling on this surface as they receive plenty of help. On the other hand, spinners get some turn and bounce but are more economical than wicket-takers. 

The venue saw a decent score of 163 on board and saw the tables turn with Namibia’s wonderful display of pace bowling. Hence, pace bowlers are a necessity on your side. The venue hasn’t hosted many Twenty20 International games, however, it will show its true nature in the upcoming world cup games.
