TOSS WINNER – SRILANKA
MATCH WINNER – SRILANKA
Sri Lanka will begin its World Cup campaign against Namibia, with the hope of advancing past the first round without incident. This is a chance for Namibia to make a name for itself and give Sri Lanka a run for their money.
With Ireland and the Netherlands also in the group, Sri Lanka will not take any chances and will aim for a convincing victory.
Sri Lanka vs Namibia T20 World Cup 2021 match prediction and cricket betting tips On October 18, 2021, the match will be held at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Sri Lanka has already played a couple of T20 matches against Oman ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021, which should help them get into the swing of things. The pitch in Abu Dhabi, on the other hand, is likely to be very different from what they encountered in Oman.
On this surface, Sri Lanka’s spinners will be crucial, and they should have a significant advantage over Namibia in this department. The likes of Akila Dananjaya and Wanindu Hasaranga will be crucial. In fact, we believe that betting on Hasaranga in the Sri Lanka Top Bowler betting market is a good idea.
Avishka Fernando has been in superb form for the batsmen, while Dasun Shanaka has also performed admirably. Kusal Perera, Dinesh Chandimal, and possibly Bhanika Rajapaksa should also be included in the starting XI.
Sri Lanka should not take Namibia lightly, but it should still have enough left in the tank to win comfortably.
Namibia has earned a spot in the T20 World Cup 2021 on its own merits and should not be overlooked. Of course, David Wiese (who plays T20 cricket around the world and has previously represented South Africa) is the most well-known player in this lineup, but there are a few others to keep an eye on.
Stephan Baard, Gerhard Erasmus, and Craig Williams all have a chance to bat in the lineup. The bowling attack will be led by JJ Smit, Ben Shikongo, and David Wiese.
Namibia will not be taken lightly and will put the Sri Lankans to the test, but it will struggle due to a lack of depth and experience playing international cricket.
