SL vs IRE Betting Tips

  • Although it was Bhanuka Rajapaksa who top scored for Sri Lanka against Namibia on Monday, we are backing opener Kusal Perera to be their highest run scorer in this match. Spinners Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana both impressed against Namibia and we recommend Hasaranga as their top wicket taker against Ireland.
  • Paul Stirling played a very restrained innings for his 39-ball unbeaten 30 against the Netherlands. We expect to see some more fireworks from him in this game and to be Ireland’s highest run scorer. With the ball, Curtis Campher took the headlines with 4 wickets in 4 balls but we are backing Mark Adair, who recorded figures of 3-9 on Monday, to be Ireland’s top wicket taker.
  • After bowling a little bit within himself against Namibia, we predict Wanindu Hasaranga to put in an excellent display with bat and ball and to take the Player of The Match Award.

Sri Lanka vs Ireland Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2021

Match 8 in Group A sees Sri Lanka and Ireland come face to face in the 2021 T20 World Cup on Wednesday evening at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Both teams enjoyed 7 wicket wins whilst batting second on Monday. Sri Lanka defeated Namibia inside 14 overs with Ireland seeing off the Netherlands from 15.1 overs. This game begins at 18:00 local time.

Sri Lanka were able to cruise over the line with over 6 overs to spare against Namibia. However, it was not the perfect performance and they will have to raise their game against a talented Ireland side.

Ireland’s victory may not have been so easy against the Netherlands if it were not for Campher’s incredible over. After that they were rarely tested and this game will be a major step up.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Sri Lanka got through their opening game against Namibia with no injuries and a big win to begin the T20 World Cup 2021. We predict the same XI will be picked with maybe Avishka Fernando and Bhanuka Rajapaksa being pushed up the order after taking the side to victory on Monday.

SL Key Players

  • Kusal Perera - The keeper-batsman looks to have overcome his hamstring injury. He kept well and was fluent in his short time at the crease.
  • Bhanuka Rajapaksa - The batter played very nicely to post 42 not-out from 27 balls. His innings included 4 fours and 2 sixes.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga - The leg-spinner caused Namibia immediate problems when he came on to bowl on Monday. Expect more of the same in this match.

SL Team Form

After three straight defeats in this format, Sri Lanka will be relieved to be back to winning ways and looking to secure a spot in the Super12s

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Kusal Perera (wk), Pathum Nissanka, Dinesh Chandimal, Avishka Fernando, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dasun Shanaka (c), Chamika Karunaratne, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, Maheesh Theekshana, Lahiru Kumara

SL vs IRE Dream11 Team Prediction, Captain, Vice Captain

  • Wicket-keeper

    Dinesh Chandimal (9), Kusal Perera (9) and Neil Rock (8) will be our wicket-keepers. All three had quiet games on Monday but are vital cogs in their teams.

  • Batsmen

    Paul Stirling (10), Gareth Delany (9), Avishka Fernando (9) and Bhanuka Rajapaksa (8.5) are our batsmen. All four players got their tournament off to a healthy start in Monday’s matches.

  • All-rounders

    Wanindu Hasaranga will be our all-rounder. He put the Namibian batters under pressure immediately and many of them were unable to pick his deliveries.

  • Bowlers

    Mark Adair (9), Josh Little (8.5) and Maheesh Theekshana (8) will be our bowlers. All three picked up wickets in their opening matches with Adair and Theekshana both taking 3 each.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Wanindu Hasaranga will be captain, Kusal Perera his deputy

Sri Lanka vs Ireland Match Prediction

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

After restricting the Netherlands to 106 all out, Ireland were able to bat without taking undue risks in their successful chase. There were no collisions in the field or batters pulling muscles going for risky singles and we expect the same XI to take the field in this match.

IRE Key Players

  • Paul Stirling - The opener went at a strike-rate of 76.92 on Monday compared to his IT20 career strike-rate of 135.89. Expect him to have to take more risks against Sri Lanka.
  • Curtis Campher - The South African all-rounder has a reputation for producing magic moments but taking 4 wickets in 4 balls was way above anyone's expectations.
  • Mark Adair - The bowling all-rounder got the key wickets of Max O’Dowd and Pieter Seelaar in an excellent bowling performance on Monday.

IRE Team Form

Ireland have now won four of their last five IT20 matches. They showed a mature and pre-meditated approach in their chase against the Netherlands and look like they fancy going far in the competition

Ireland Predicted Playing 11

Paul Stirling, Kevin O’Brien, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher, Harry Tector, Neil Rock (wk), Simi Singh, Mark Adair, Joshua Little, Ben White

Sri Lanka vs Ireland Top Team Batsmen

We are recommending Kusal Perera, Dinesh Chandimal and Avishka Fernando with the bat for Sri Lanka. Fernando hit 30 not-out to take Sri Lanka over the line on Monday.

For Ireland, we are backing Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie and Kevin O’Brien. Stirling played an unfamiliar role but will be pleased to have got plenty of practice in the middle.

Sri Lanka vs Ireland Top Team Bowlers

Our picks with the ball for Sri Lanka are Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera and Maheesh Theekshana. Hasaranga and Theekshana caused Namibia all sorts of problems on Monday.

Our tips for Ireland’s top bowlers are Josh Little, Mark Adair and Curtis Campher. All three bowled well against the Netherlands but it was Campher and Adair who took the lion share of the wickets.

🏆 Sri Lanka vs Ireland Prediction

The two match winners from Monday come face to face in the knowledge that another victory will go a long way to confirming their place in the Super12s stage. They will both be tested far more in this match and we are predicting a close game with Sri Lanka getting the victory.
