SL vs IRE Tips, Stats & Team for Today Match Prediction
Match: SL vs IRE T20 Match Prediction
Time: 20 October, 07:30 PM (IST)
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium – Abu Dhabi, UAE
- 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.
Live Streaming: Star Sports will show the game in India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Sky Cricket in the UK and Willow TV in the USA will broadcast the match. Foxtel and Kayo will show the match in Australia.

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.
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.
