  • Following a shock defeat at the hands of Namibia, Sri Lanka’s T20 World Cup hopes were hanging by a thread early on, but victories over UAE and the Netherlands was enough for them to make it through into the ‘Super 12’s’.
  • Whilst Sri Lanka have yet to really put a huge score on the board with the bat, they have taken 19 of a possible 20 wickets with the ball in their last two games and such potency is a recipe for success.


  • A sensational nine-wicket win for Ireland over the West Indies in their final group game earned them a well-deserved qualification to this stage of the tournament after chasing down a total of 147 in just 17.3 overs for the loss of one wicket.
  • So often opener Paul Stirling is highlighted as Ireland key weapon at the top of the order and he proved that vs the Windies, smashing 66 not out from 48 balls to break the back of the run chase.


Both these two nations are coming off the back of consecutive victories and momentum is high within both camps right now. If Ireland’s top order bat as well as they did against West Indies, then they stand an excellent chance of success, but that isn’t as likely vs a top-quality Sri Lankan bowling unit who have been feasting on wickets recently. As was the case at the Asia Cup, Sri Lanka needed a game to get themselves going, but look to have firmly hit their stride now and could take some stopping going forward. Back Dasun Shanaka’s side to make it three successive wins and begin their ‘Super 12’ campaign in ideal fashion.
