Pitch and Weather Report

The pitch at the Ekana Cricket Stadium tends to slow down a bit as the game progresses. The side batting first should try to save wickets and keep building strong partnerships as this isn’t a distinctive high-scoring surface. Teams tend to lose wickets at regular intervals during the middle overs. The par score for the side would look to add around 270-280 runs on the scoreboard.

Match Prediction

The Sri Lankan side is going through a dark phase and there is a significant dip in form. Facing a weaker side gives them a chance to make a comeback in this tournament but the Netherlands will enter this match after defeating the defending champions England, which makes things a bit difficult for the Islanders. We expect it to be a tough fight with Sri Lanka coming on the winning side.
