Probable Playing Xl

Sri Lanka Probable XI: Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis(wk), Dhanajaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dasun Shanaka(c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Danushka Gunathilaka ,Chamika Karunaratne, Pramod Madushan, Maheesh Theekshana.

The Netherlands have won back-to-back matches, so it is unlikely they make any changes.

Netherlands Probable XI: Colin Ackermann, TLW Cooper, BFW de Leede, MP O'Dowd, RE van der Merwe, Vikramjit Singh, S Edwards(C and WK), Logan van Beek, Fred Klaassen, PA van Meekeren, Tim Pringle


Wanindu Hasaranga has been a consistent performer for Sri Lanka and he should be your captain in your fantasy XI. Bas De Leede should be selected as your vice-captain as the Netherlands have gotten the 4 points because of his contribution with the bat and ball. Maheesh Theekshana and Tim Pringle are your other two must-picks as they seldom fail to impress.

Sri Lanka were taken aback by the stunning performance of Namibia in their opening encounter. However, they ensured they took no time to turn the tables in their favor as they managed to get the better of UAE. The Netherlands will be hoping they can advance without losing a game. 

Sri Lanka have a very strong bowling line-up and we do not think the Dutch can get hold of them.
