SL vs SCT Team Previews

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has been clinical in its performance in this tournament. It is the strongest team in Group B and has lived up to the expectations of the fans by winning all three of its matches so far. The team has already made it through to the Super Sixes but they would nevertheless look to maintain the winning momentum.

The opening pair of Pathunm Nissanka and Dimuth Karunaratne will once again look to give the team a strong start here. While Nissanka has lacked consistency, Karunaratne is in red-hot form, scoring 2 half-centuries and a century in his last 3 innings.

The middle order is in good shape too. Sadeera Samarawickrama has scored half-centuries in both his outings, while the likes of Charith Asalanka, Kusal Mendis, and are in good touch too. Wanindu Hasaranga has been outstanding with the ball, picking up 16 wickets in just 3 games.

He will be supported by Maheesh Theekshana in the spin department, while Lahiru Kumara, Kasun Rajitha, and Dasun Shanaka will feature in the pace attack.

Scotland has had a brilliant run so far in this tournament, and just like their opponents, the team is unbeaten after playing 3 matches and is through to the next stage.

Skipper Richie Berrington has led his team from the front and is the highest run-scorer for his team in this tournament. His knocks include a century and a half-century. Openers Christopher McBride and Matthew Cross haven’t been in the best of forms so far and will be looking to change that by giving the team a strong start.

Scotland’s biggest strength in the tournament has been middle-order batting. Along with Berrington, the likes of Michael Leask, Brandon McMullen, and Tomas Mackintosh have played well, helping the team build a strong foundation.

Coming to the bowling, all-rounder McMullen is the leading wicket-taker with 7 wickets and will feature in the pace attack along with Chris Sole and Safyaan Sharif. Spinner Chris Greaves picked up a fifer in his last outing and will lead the pace attack here with Leask and Mark Watt.
