Sri Lanka Team Preview
Sri Lanka had a pretty good last three T20 series as they won the home series against India and then beat Oman at their home. Although they lost the T20 series against South Africa 1-2 still are looking in good touch in the T20s.
Avishka Fernando who has been on the top of the form in international cricket will have the opportunity to climb the ladder again with some consistent performances with the bat. He is brimming with confidence and has to use his rich experience against the Namibia bowlers. Kusal Perera and Dinesh Chandimal also make the Sri Lanka team a strong batting side on the papers and they can be backed as the top batsmen of the team.
Dushmantha Chameera has bowled terrific for Sri Lanka in recent competitions against all teams. Now he has a lot of experience and can be lethal with his bowling and can make the batting conditions extremely difficult for the opposition.
Namibia Team Preview
Although Namibia has not played international Cricket much in recent times still they have been able to found a place in T20 World due to their capabilities. Some exceptionally talented players are the Namibia squad like Captain Gerhard Erasmus can bat consistently. But the needs support from other batsmen also like David Wiese who is a world-class player and played in many leagues around the world.
Gerhard Erasmus and Craig Williams are also notable batsmen who can put the Namibia team in strong positions with their batting. By having these batsmen in the Namibia team, the Sri Lanka team can not make the mistake of taking them lightly.
Jan Frylinck gave a glimpse of his left-arm spin bowling brilliance by taking 6 wickets in the warm-up match. He can be a surprising factor for the Sri Lanka team. Although the Namibia team looks light on the paper with the presence of Jan Frylinck, they can create problems for the Sri Lanka team.
Sri Lanka vs Namibia Winner Prediction
Namibia is always placed down when comparing with a team like Sri Lanka. But in T20 Cricket anything is possible and few minutes of better performance from even a weak team like Namibia can easily overpass a strong team like Sri Lanka. But Sri Lanka will be playing in this match with their full strength and then it will be going so so much hard for Namibia to stop.
So Sri Lanka are favourites to win.
