SL vs NEP Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

Match 23 of the 2024 T20 World Cup sees Sri Lanka take on Nepal at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill on Tuesday evening. Sri Lanka lost their two opening games of the tournament whilst Nepal have only played one match and were also beaten. Read on as we preview this game which begins on 12th June at 19:30 local time.

Sri Lanka have been disappointing with the bat so far in this tournament and in both of their game their bowlers have not been able to recover the situation. They have a strong bowling attack and if the batters can stand up and perform in this game then they should have no problem in recording a win.

Although they went down to a defeat, Nepal did show plenty of fight in the second innings with the ball against the Netherlands in Dallas. They are up against a strong bowling unit in this match though and scoring runs is a real issue against higher quality attacks.

SL vs NEP Match Toss Prediction

The last two T20Is at this venue were won by the team fielding first and with this being the first game in Lauderhill of this T20 World Cup, we predict that both captains will want to see how the wicket plays before batting. Therefore, we expect both teams to want to field first.

SL vs NEP Pitch Report

This is a good batting pitch as seen in the last T20I here when West Indies chased down a target of 166 with only two wickets down and with 12 balls remaining. There could be some spin but overall there will be good carry for the pace bowlers throughout.

Florida Weather Report

It looks like being very warm and humid throughout Tuesday evening in Lauderhill but also with a constant threat of thunderstorms. The forecast does not change across the evening.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Although Sri Lanka currently look like they have very little chance of progressing to the Super Eights, there is still a slim opportunity so we do not expect to see any squad players given an opportunity purely for experience. No injuries have been announced in the squad.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka – The all-format opener hit seven fours and a six in the last game and he should enjoy the pitch conditions here in Lauderhill.
  • Charith Asalanka – The left-handed batting all-rounder has scored over 3000 international runs but his side need him to find T20I form sooner rather than later.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga – The captain and bowling all-rounder has been very consistent in the tournament and will be looking for his third two wicket haul in a row.
  • Nuwan Thushara – The right-arm fast medium bowler is a threat at all times in a T20I as shown in the last game taking wickets in the second, sixth and 18th overs.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka come into this game after three defeats from their last four T20I matches.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Kamindu Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Wanindu Hasaranga (c), Angelo Mathews, Dasun Shanaka, Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana, Nuwan Thushara

NEP Team News

After losing in Dallas, a good look at the pitch will be required from the team management to see if any changes are required to the line-up in this match. However, with Nepal only one game into the tournament, we expect to see them field the same XI for this game.

NEP Key Players

  • Rohit Paudel – At 21 years of age, the captain has already made an ODI century and has hit 15 other international scores of 50+. He needs to produce a big score to give his side a chance in Lauderhill.
  • Anil Sah – The batting all-rounder is only three games into his T20I career but he has been picked to take the attack to the opposition bowlers from the first ball he faces in the number three role.
  • Sompal Kami – The 28 year old bowling all-rounder made an immediate impact with the wicket of Michael Levitt in Match 7 and he is likely to be dangerous with the new ball once again.
  • Karan KC – The pace bowler was economical against the Netherlands but did not take a wicket. We expect him to crank up his speed at this venue.

NEP Team Form

Nepal have lost their last three games to the Netherlands, Hong Kong and UAE.

Nepal Predicted Playing 11

Kushal Bhurtel, Aasif Sheikh (wk), Anil Sah, Rohit Paudel (c), Kushal Malla, Dipendra Singh Airee, Sompal Kami, Gulsan Jha, Karan KC, Sagar Dhakal, Abinash Bohara
