It’s an intriguing clash in Group 1 of the ICC World Twenty20 as favourites Sri Lanka take on minnows Netherlands in Chittagong.
On that basis it should be an easy match to predict, but after the heroics the Dutch batsmen pulled off against Ireland in the qualifiers it’s clear they possess talent.
Therefore the Sri Lankans should not take their opponents lightly, especially as they know a victory in this game will edge them towards the semi-finals after beating South Africa in their opening tie.
They are real white ball specialists and even though the old guard of Tillakaratne Dilshan, Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara failed to perform against the Proteas, the new wave did – including Angelo Mathews and Kusal Perera.
With the ball Lasith Malinga is still a real force to be reckoned with, whilst Ajantha Mendis, Sachithra Senanayake and Rangana Herath are ideally suited to the conditions in Bangladesh.
The Netherlands meanwhile are keen to show they aren’t just at the tournament as whipping boys and in Tom Cooper, Stephan Myburgh and Wesley Barresi, have big hitters who can compete with the best.
