SL vs NAM Betting Tips

  • Stephan Baard has a top score of 92 in this format and the top order batter is our recommendation for Namibia’s highest run scorer in this match. Jan Frylinck has taken two wickets in each of his last three appearances. The quick bowler is a strong choice for Namibia’s top wicket taker against Sri Lanka.
  • Pathum Nissanka has scored seven half-centuries in this format and he is our tip for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer against Namibia. With the ball, bowling all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga has 71 wickets at an average of 14.74 in T20Is and the spinner is our pick for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • We suggest backing Wanindu Hasaranga to take 2+ wickets in this clash.

Sri Lanka vs Namibia Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2022

The 2022 T20 World Cup gets underway as Namibia take on Sri Lanka in the First Round of the tournament on Sunday afternoon in Geelong in Pool A. The teams met in Pool A in the 2021 T20 World Cup and both progressed to the ‘Super 12’ stage in the UAE. Read on as we preview this opening fixture. The game begins at Kardinia Park at 15:00 local time.

Sri Lanka come into this tournament off the back of winning the 2022 Asia Cup. Although the conditions will be very different in this competition, they will be very confident of getting off to a winning start.

Namibia captured many new supporters during the 2021 T20 World Cup and will be confident of giving another good account of themselves in Australia. However, this is a tough opening fixture.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Chris Silverwood’s side have all of their 2022 Asia Cup winners available and we expect to see a very similar side in this first game of the T20 World Cup as we saw in the final in Dubai last month. There are currently no injury worries in the Sri Lanka squad.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka- the right-handed 24 year old opener scored successive half-centuries against India and Pakistan during the Asia Cup.
  • Bhanuka Rajapaksa- the powerful left-handed middle order batter hit 71 not out from 45 balls in the Asia Cup final. He also struck a half-century in the 2021 T20 World Cup.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga- the right arm leg-spinner finished as the top wicket taker in last year’s T20 World Cup with 16 dismissals at an average of 9.75.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka have been in excellent form in T20Is and won their last five games in this format to win the 2022 Asia Cup in September.

Gerhard Erasmus will lead the team again after successfully steering them to the Super 12 stage in 2021. They have an excellent mix of experienced players, like David Wiese and Jan Frylinck, alongside exciting emerging players like Divan La Cock.
