Qualifiers, Match 8, SL vs IRE: Preview, Match Details, Pitch Report, Probable XIs, Match Prediction and Fantasy Picks
Both the teams have registered a win in their opening fixture and thus will be confident going forward. A win will definitely seal the deal and will already keep a foot in the Super 12.
Against the Netherlands, it was an easy outing for the Irish. The hero of the match, Curtis Campher took four wickets and broke the backbone of the Netherlands. Their legend Paul Stirling gave them a good start and Gareth Delany finished with the bat to mark an easy two points. Against Sri Lanka, they have to be in their very best. The defending champions are no more the superpower they used to be but definitely have the ability to beat Ireland on any day.
Talking about the defending champions, their top order needs to come back on form. It was a golden chance but they failed to capitalize. Avishka Fernando and Rajapaksa did the job for the Lankans. Wanindu Hasaranga seemed to get back in touch but it’s not safe to judge a player based on just one match and that too against Namibia. Thus, pressure will be on Sri Lanka as fans will expect them to win all their qualifying matches and eventually get into Super 12 with a lot of confidence and momentum.

It will be a spin friendly pitch but pacers will get some help in the initial overs. If both the teams get a steady start, 160 will be easy on this pitch. Dew is also expected. So, the team who’ll win the toss may choose to field first.
