SL vs UAE Betting Tips

  • Opener Pathum Nissanka made only nine runs in the opening match but has been in excellent form across all formats over recent months. He is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer against UAE. Wanindu Hasaranga has 72 IT20 wickets from 45 appearances and he is our recommendation for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker.
  • Muhammad Waseem continued his strong form with 41 runs from 47 balls against Netherlands and the opener is our pick for UAE’s highest run scorer in this clash. With the ball, medium fast bowler Junaid Siddique very nearly turned the game with figures of 3-24 and he is our tip for UAE’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • We are backing Wanindu Hasaranga to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash.

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

Sri Lanka and UAE face off in Pool A’s fourth match on Tuesday evening at Kardinia Park, Geelong. Both teams lost their opening games on Sunday. Sri Lanka suffered a surprise heavy defeat to Namibia with UAE losing a close match with Netherlands. Read on as we preview this fixture. The 2022 T20 World Cup First Round match begins at 19:00 local time.

After suffering the embarrassment of a 55 run defeat to Namibia, we expect to see a big response from Sri Lanka in this game. They lost their opening game of the Asia Cup by eight wickets and went on to triumph.

UAE may struggle to get closer to another team than in the three wicket defeat to Netherlands on Sunday. We expect a focused Sri Lanka side to be too strong for them in this match.

SL vs UAE Match Toss Prediction

UAE chose to bat first after winning the toss on Sunday evening but we predict that both teams will elect to field first if they win the toss ahead of this game.

SL vs UAE Pitch Report

Any score of over 160 will be very hard to chase down in the second innings of this match. Expect there to be movement for the pace and spin bowlers from this surface.

Weather Report

The humidity will rise in the second half of the game with the level reaching 80% by the close. There will be no rain interruptions.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

The Asia Cup Champions were dealt a blow on the eve of Sunday’s game when left-arm pace bowler Dilshan Madushanka got injured during a training session and ruled himself out of the tournament. Apart from that injury, Sri Lanka have a full squad to select from.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka - The 24 year old opener has scored seven half-centuries in IT20s. His top score of 75 came against India in February of this year.
  • Maheesh Theekshana - The young off-spinner was the most economical of Sri Lanka’s bowlers in the defeat to Namibia. He dismissed David Wiese and hit 11 not out with the bat.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga - The bowling all-rounder took 1-27 against Namibia. He was not at his best in the opening match but will be Sri Lanka’s main bowling weapon throughout this tournament.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka came into Sunday’s game after winning the Asia Cup and the defeat was their first in six matches.

UAE Team News & Playing 11

UAE Team News

There were no surprises in the UAE line-up for the opening game against Netherlands in T20 World Cup 2022 on Sunday evening and, after getting so close to victory, we expect the same XI to be selected. 16 year old Aayan Afzal Khan became the youngest player to play in a Men’s T20 World Cup fixture.

UAE Key Players

  • Muhammad Waseem - The right handed opener hit a four and two sixes on Sunday and keeps his IT20 average above 40 after 18 innings.
  • Zahoor Khan - The right arm medium fast bowler produced an incredible display of economical bowling against Netherlands. He bowled four overs and took 1-11.
  • Junaid Siddique - The 29 year old got the big wickets of Max O’Dowd and Tom Cooper against Netherlands. He now has 32 wickets in this format.

UAE Team Form

UAE very nearly beat Netherlands but instead have now lost four successive IT20s.

UAE Predicted Playing 11

Chirag Suri, Muhammad Waseem, Kashif Daud, Vriitya Aravind (wk), Zawar Farid, Basil Hameed, Chundangapoyil Rizwan (c), Aayan Afzal Khan, Karthik Meiyappan, Junaid Siddique, Zahoor Khan

🏆 Sri Lanka vs UAE Prediction

Although Namibia were never going to be easy opponents, Sri Lanka should never have been in a position to lose against them let alone by the large margin we saw on Sunday. As a result, we expect Sri Lanka to come out and show what they can do in this game. We are predicting a big win for Sri Lanka.
