T20 Worldcup 2021 : Sri Lanka vs Netherlands Match Result

On their way out of the competition, the Netherlands had a dismal game. With the bat, they had a poor effort, scoring the second lowest total in T20 World Cup history. They also have the lowest score, 39, which was achieved in 2014 against the same opposition. However, how good has Sri Lanka’s bowling been? In the three games thus far, they’ve let up a total of 101 points. And they were on fire tonight, with the two spinners being too difficult to read for the Netherlands, and the pacers being too hot to manage. In the Super 12s, they will undoubtedly face tougher challenges, but they are off to a flying start. We’ll have the presentations in a few minutes.

Lahiru Kumara Player of the Match

As he finished up the Netherlands innings, he picked up three wickets for seven runs, all in one over.

Seelaar Netherlands captain

Simply put, SL outplayed us. This bunch was completely outplayed by me. Only two more steps to go. In November, I’ll be starting a SA series. In March, there will be a qualifier in New Zealand. It’s time to get back to the drawing board. They came out with a lot of fire, a lot of aggression, and a lot of team fury.

Shanaka SL captain

Bowlers are performing admirably. We have six bowlers since I didn’t bowl in these qualifying (sic). We understand the benefits and drawbacks (in these circumstances), therefore it’s a significant bonus for us going ahead.
