  • Sri Lanka booked their spot in the next stage of the T20 World Cup with their second consecutive win in the tournament, taking their winning streak to six matches in T20i matches.
  • They were strong with both bat and ball despite getting off to a disastrous start when they were reduced to 8/3 but some important individual performances from the likes of Wanindu Hasaranga, Pathum Nissanka and Maheesh Theekshana helped Sri Lanka to secure a comfortable 70-run success.


  • Netherlands crashed out of the T20 World Cup after they failed to overcome Namibia last time out and only pride is at stake for them in this final match before they exit the tournament.
  • A much-improved effort from their opening game was not enough as they could not defend their total of 164 with their bowling unit once again failing in their task with the Dutch only managing to take seven wickets in their two matches so far.


Sri Lanka secured safe passage into the main section of the T20 World Cup and they will be confident of extending their winning streak to seven matches as they face Netherlands in their final Group A clash. Having lost both games so far, the Netherlands have already been eliminated and while they will be desperate to bow out on a high, this will be a tough task. Sri Lanka have produced two impressive performances so far and they will be looking to maintain their 100% record here which is something they can achieve with them also able to cover the handicap of -5.5 wickets/-27.5 runs.
