Netherlands vs Sri Lanka where to watch details are discussed ahead of their World Cup 2023 clash. Netherlands and Sri Lanka are all set to lock horns in the 19th match of World Cup 2023 on Saturday, October 21 at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
Sri Lanka are in dire straits in the tournament. Having lost all three of their matches, they are languishing at the bottom of the table with a net run rate of -1.532. The fact that they have lost Dasun Shanaka to injury has not helped them by any means.
Sri Lanka had their fair share of chances against Pat Cummins’ Australia in Lucknow, but they let the opposition off the hook. Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Perera put on 125 runs for the opening wicket off 21.4 overs as Sri Lanka were looking good to put up a huge score on the board.
But then they suffered a horrendous batting collapse and were bowled out for 209 in 43.3 overs. Nissanka and Perera scored 61 and 78 runs respectively, but their efforts went in vain. Dilshan Madushanka picked up three wickets, but the Aussies chased down the target with 14.4 overs left in their innings.
Netherlands, on the other hand, will be brimming with confidence. They made Pakistan sweat in their first game before going down to Tom Latham’s New Zealand. However, they struck back by beating Temba Bavuma’s South Africa by 38 runs on Tuesday, October 17 at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium in Pune.
The Dutch team punched above their weight and became the first non-Test playing nation to beat South Africa in both World Cups (T20 and ODI). Scott Edwards became the Player of the Match after he racked up 78 runs off 69 balls with 10 fours and one six.
Roelof van der Merwe, who once used to play for the Proteas, rocked the South African batting with two wickets to his name. Logan van Beek, who missed out in the match against New Zealand, was the standout Dutch bowler after he finished with impressive figures of 8.5-60-3.
After asking the opposition to chase down a target of 246 in a rain-curtailed 43-over match, Netherlands bowled Temba Bavuma’s men for 207 in 42.5 overs. They will be fancying their chances against Sri Lanka, who have been shambolic until now.
