Dasun Shanaka, Sri Lanka’s captain, led his team to a strong start in their warm-up tournaments. Sri Lanka has now earned a position in the top 12 teams.
He faces a significant challenge, although his team recently finished the Asia Cup Series on a high note and won the title of Asian Champions this year, ahead of the World Cup 2022.
In Sri Lanka’s final game, Kusal Mendis scored a magnificent 79 off 44 to help his team reach 162 for 6 on a sluggish surface before their spinners took care of the Netherlands, with Wanindu Hasaranga showing signs of improvement before the tournament’s main draw.
Moreover, Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana, the spin twins from Sri Lanka who destroyed the UAE in the previous match, will play an even bigger part in this one given some concerning injury news from other areas of the camp.
The Expectations of the Match
The last few games have seen strong cricket from both Underdog teams. Sri Lanka is the more powerful in both cases. They might benefit from some of the team’s more seasoned players. Ireland, meanwhile, has not received enough exposure to it. Both clubs’ players are in top form, as seen by their consecutive victories in previous games.
The pitch at Bellerive Oval has typically been great for batting. In 32 of the 39 T20 games played here, teams batting first have scored above 150 runs. Teams with first and second innings have both been successful in Hobart. At Bellerive Oval, the spinners have fared more satisfactorily when comparing pace and spin. at the location.
Full Squad- Sri Lanka
Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Bhanuka Rajapaksa (wk), Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (Captain). Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Lahiru Kumara, Binura Fernando, Maheesh Theekshana
Full Squad- Ireland
Andrew Balbirnie (Captain), Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Stephen Doheny, Fionn Hand, Josh Little, Barry McCarthy, Conor Olphert, Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Craig Young.
One of the heavy favourites is Sri Lanka, who is still on a roll after winning the Asia Cup 2022. Both on and off the paper, the side is more evenly matched. and will probably begin their Super 12 season with a victory in their opening match.
They must be mindful of team IRELAND, though, as they have the capability to change the momentum of the game at any time.
