Sri Lanka vs Netherlands Prediction

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

Sri Lanka and Netherlands go head to head at Gros Islet on Sunday evening in Match 38 of the 2024 T20 World Cup. Both teams are currently going out of the tournament although Netherlands do at least still have a chance of progressing. Sri Lanka have lost two of three games with Netherlands winning one from three. Read on as we preview this game which begins at 20:30 local time at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium on 16th June.

Sri Lanka have always been a stronger side than Netherlands across all formats and it would be a surprise if they did not add another win to their tally in this match. They have more experience and a stronger batting line-up than their opponents in this game. 

Netherlands pushed Bangladesh all the way in their last game and it will be interesting to see if they can keep up that level of performance against Sri Lanka. With a place in the Super Eights potentially up for grabs, we expect Netherlands to be competitive.

SL vs NED Match Toss Prediction

Teams batting first have a much stronger record in T20I cricket at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium than those chasing. Our prediction is that both skippers will want to bat first in this match.

SL vs NED Pitch Report

On this pitch, the ball will be a lot harder to time to the boundary after the powerplay is over as the ball will not come onto the bat with as much pace. A par total at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium is likely to be no higher than 170.

St Lucia Weather Report

We can expect another warm evening for this game in Gros Islet. Humidity will be high and there is some chance of rain arriving in the first half of the game.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

With Sri Lanka already out of the tournament, this game could be an opportunity for some squad players to get an appearance in this match. Their batting has been their weakest point and we certainly do not expect to see any changes for the bowling attack.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka- the right-handed opener hit seven fours and one six in the tight defeat against Bangladesh. His strike-rate of 167.85 was far above the rest of his side.
  • Kusal Mendis- the vastly experienced keeper-batter is still only 29 years old and has hit over 1500 T20 runs across his 66 T20I innings.
  • Nuwan Thushara- the pace bowler has caused problems with the new ball throughout the tournament and was unfotubate to miss out on the Player of the Match award.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga- after missing the ODI World Cup with injury at the back end of last year the skipper will be very disappointed with his his side have performed. However, he has had a good individual campaign.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka are still yet to win a game in this tournament and have one point from three matches.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

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

Netherlands Team News & Playing 11

NED Team News

There was a real range of economy rates from Netherlands in their defeat to Bangladesh on Thursday and the bowling attack could be an area where changes are made in this match. There are no injuries in the squad ahead of this match.

NED Key Players

  • Sybrand Engelbrecht- the middle-order batter is fast becoming a key player for Netherlands with his batting and brilliant fielding. He will look to score quickly from the first ball at the crease.
  • Scott Edwards- the skipper is one of the best when it comes to the sweep and the reverse sweep. He will score his runs at a good strike-rate and is never afraid of looking to turn momentum.
  • Aryan Dutt- the spinner came back into the side for the defeat against Bangladesh and dismissed Najmul Hossain Shanto and Shakib Al Hasan whilst keeping his economy rate down.
  • Paul van Meekeren- the pace bowler is exceptional at reading the wicket and that means that he is a real danger from his first ball when he is brought into the attack.

NED Team Form

After winning their opening game of T20 World Cup 2024, Netherlands have since lost two matches in a row.

Netherlands Predicted Playing 11

Michael Levitt, Max O’Dowd, Vikramjit Singh, Sybrand Engelbrecht, Scott Edwards (wk) (c), Bas de Leede, Logan van Beek, Tim Pringle, Aryan Dutt, Paul van Meekeren, Vivian Kingma.

Who will win Sri Lanka vs Netherlands Match?

Netherlands have once again given a good account of themselves at a major tournament but they do not have the depth of some of the full nation sides. Sri Lanka have a much stronger group on and off the field.
