ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 – Sri Lanka vs Ireland, 15th Match, Super 12 Group 1 Preview
In the face off against the West Indies, it will be challenging for Ireland to hammer Sri Lanka as well in today’s match. Sri Lanka showed some good performances irrespective of falling against Namibia in the first round. The side has seen many injured key players but the Asia Cup Champions have shown wonderful figures even after pushover conditions.
The spin combination of Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana is evident to be quite effective in the middle overs and it will be tough for Ireland.
Lastly, they played in Hobart, so Ireland has the advantage of being familiar with the conditions. They have appeared in two matches.
The playing pitch seemed to be a solid track and Sri Lanka would look to bat first if they win the toss. It will be a bit bouncy, offering some spin, 160 expected.
