Match Preview:

Sri Lanka, led by Wanindu Hasaranga, was considered one of the favorites to qualify from Group D, which includes South Africa, Bangladesh, Netherlands, and Nepal. However, the team has struggled with the bat throughout the tournament. Against the Netherlands, they will aim to secure their first win and give their fans something to cheer about. Pathum Nissanka has performed well with the bat, but other key players like Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, and Charith Asalanka need to step up and convert their starts into substantial scores. Additionally, Hasaranga’s captaincy has come under scrutiny and will be reviewed after the tournament.


The Netherlands, captained by Scott Edwards, have a slim chance to qualify for the Super 8. They need a massive win against Sri Lanka and then rely on the outcome of Bangladesh's game. While it seems nearly impossible, the World Cup has seen surprising results so far. Regardless of their qualification chances, the Netherlands will aim to put up a strong fight against a Test-playing nation like Sri Lanka.

The pitch at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium is known to be a batter's paradise. A high-scoring game is expected, and the captain winning the toss should consider bowling first. A score above 190 runs will be a good total on this surface.
