 SL vs IRE Tips, Stats & Team for Today Match Prediction 

 Match:  SL vs IRE T20 Match Prediction 
 Time:     20 October, 07:30 PM (IST) 

 Series:   T20 Match 
 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.

 Team News: 

 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.

 Winning Chances: 

Who will win today match: SL vs IRE T20 Match Fantasy Team
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.

 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.

 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.

 Team Forms: 

 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.

 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.
