  • Sri Lanka come into this final round of Group A fixtures 3rd-place in the table, but victory against Netherlands would see them leapfrog their opponents due to a better net-run-rate accrued through the group stage so far.
  • The bowling unit skittled out United Arab Emirates for just 73 last time out after batting first and scoring 152/8 with Pathum Nissanka making 74 from 60 balls.


  • Despite having won both their group games so far, defeat here to Sri Lanka is likely to see the Netherlands eliminated on net-run-rate should Namibia defeat United Arab Emirates on the same day.
  • A second successful run chase saw Netherlands overcome Namibia on Tuesday, this time by five wickets with all-rounder Bas de Leede winning a second consecutive Player of the Match award.


Sri Lanka will be well aware that a win here is enough for them to qualify and if they bowl as well as they did last time out, then they stand an excellent chance against Netherlands. As well as Netherlands have played so far, their highest score accumulated with the bat is 122 in a successful run chase against Namibia. This bodes well for Sri Lanka, who contain such a good bowling attack and they could easily restrict the Netherlands to a low score here in Geelong. Whilst their batting line-up can’t afford any collapses, Sri Lanka should do enough to ultimately come out on top.
