Sri Lanka v Ireland – Team News

  • Kusal Perera – The Sri Lankan opener and wicketkeeper fell early in the previous game but will be looking for more runs in this clash.
  • Maheesh Theekshana – The spinner took three wickets in the previous win over Namibia and can add to his tally in this one with conditions that could suit.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga – Another spinner that will be looking to make a mark. He played here in the IPL for RCB but did draw a blank on that occasion.
  • Curtis Campher – There is no denying who the star of Ireland’s win over the Netherlands was. Campher took four wickets in four balls to help his side to a memorable success. He’ll be vital again.
  • Paul Stirling – The powerful opener hit a measured 30 in 39 balls in the last game to make sure there we no slip-ups. Expect him to play with more aggression this time.

Sri Lanka v Ireland – Betting Tips and Predictions

Here are more expert cricket betting tips. These can help you make better betting choices. The predictions include all the latest odds.

Back Stirling for Top Batsman

Paul Stirling played a measured innings in the first clash to make sure Ireland got the job done chasing a low total.

He can play much more aggressively than that and looks a good bet to be Ireland’s top batsman in this contest.

He is in good form at the moment for his country and also headed into this tournament on the back of a cameo in the Hundred as he picked up a winner’s medal with Southern Brave.

His price of 3.4 with 1xBet to be Ireland’s top run-scorer looks worth considering.

Fernando can Shine for Sri Lanka

Avishka Fernando looks a value play in the Sri Lanka top batsman market.

The 23-year-old made 30 in the last game coming in at number four after his team’s openers had failed to fire. He looks in decent nick and is ideally placed to win this bet should early wickets fall again.

His price of 5.0 with bet365 looks far too big.

Back Adir to Take Wickets

Curtis Campher may have taken the headlines for his brilliant four wickets in four balls but the bowling of Adair also stood out against the Netherlands.

The pace bowler took three wickets and it would be no surprise to see him bag some more here.

He has been in good form in the warm-up matches and is playing with confidence. His price of 5.0 with bet365 to be Ireland’s top bowler looks another interesting opportunity.
