ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Srilanka vs Namibia Match Prediction

SL vs NAM Match Prediction: The wait is finally over! The T20 World Cup 2022 will begin on Sunday, October 16, at the Simonds Stadium in Geelong with a match between Sri Lanka and Namibia. The Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates are both members of Group A, which contains both of these teams. The top two teams in this group move on to the Super 12 Stage, which starts the following Saturday. In the warmup match, both sides participated and split the victory.

Sri Lanka defeated Zimbabwe by 33 runs after scoring 188 runs at the expense of five wickets. Kusal Mendis and Wanindu Hasaranga, Sri Lanka’s batsmen, were key to their success in the game. There is no denying that the Island nation has momentum and form. The spin twins Maheesh Theekshan and Wanindu Hasaranga have prospered as a result of their successes. 

With the ball in hand, the combination has displayed exceptional skill. Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Shanaka have also been used as batters. The duo hopes to make a huge impact and prevail over Namibia in the season opener.

Namibia beat Ireland in an exhibition game by 11 runs. The bowlers did a great job as they held off 138 runs with ease. The most significant player will be Namibia’s famous all-arounder David Weise. The team’s ability to move to the Super 12 stage of the most recent T20 World Cup Qualifiers was greatly aided by his contributions.

Both sides are on a winning streak and will face off to begin the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 with a victory.

PITCH REPORT

The batsman cannot just start hitting the bowlers randomly at Kardinia Park. Although the bowlers have a chance to do so, they can only succeed in doing so if they bowl properly.

On this field, there are possibilities for both bowlers and hitters to excel. The idiosyncrasies of this field may provide batters with a greater challenge than the pitch itself. There are narrower fields for cricket than this one.

 SL vs NAM Probable XIs:

SL: Kusal Mendis, Pathum Nissanka, Bhanuka Rajapasksa, Gunathilaka, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Theekshana, Chamika Karunaratne, Chameera, Madhushan

NAM: Stephan Baard, Lohandre Louwrens, Gerhard Erasmus, Divan la Cook, JJ Smit, David Wiese, Zane Green, Ruben Trumpelmann, Bernard Scholtz, Michael van Lingen, Ben Shikongo 

POWER PLAY SCORES:

Both sides are coming off victories. They need to be exuding confidence. Sri Lanka is predicted to be dominating and score at least 50 runs in the game.

Early on, Namibia will need to be wary of Srilanka’s bowlers. In the first six overs, they are capable of scoring 35 to 40 runs.

DEATH OVER SCORES:

The pitch will require hitters to adapt to the shape of the field. Towards the conclusion of an inning, we may anticipate that hitters will adjust. In the final four overs, Sri Lanka might score 40 to 45 runs. While during the death overs, Namibia might score 30 to 35 runs.

OVERALL SCORES:

Sri Lanka seems to have the ability to score between 155 and 170. If Namibia batted first, they might score 140–150.

SL vs NAM Match Prediction: WHO WILL WIN THE MATCH?

Srilanka will start the game as the favourites to win this game as they have much strong team on paper compared to Namibia.

Both departments of the Srilanka team are known for consistent play and they will look to carry forward that reputation while winning their first game.
