It’s a make-or-break match for the Netherlands. The Scott Edwards-led side is still on the hunt to make it to the Super 8. Against Sri Lanka, the Dutch would look to claim a victory and keep their hopes of making it to the next stage of the T20 World Cup alive. However, Wanindu Hasaranga’s Sri Lanka would be hurt after not being able to win even one match. They’ll come hard at the Netherlands with the hope of ending things on a high.

The Lankan Lions have a positive 3-0 record against the Dutch. All three of these encounters have come at the T20 World Cup (2014, 2021, and 2022).

Sri Lanka vs Netherlands Team News

There are no injury concerns for both sides. But given the magnitude of the match, the Netherlands would give it their all and would be prepared to tackle Sri Lanka’s unorthodox attack. Skipper Scott Edwards could be a key player, given how well he plays spin. But, Lankans might edge ahead due to their dangerous slingers.
