    A very interesting game is going on at the moment between Ireland and Namibia to decide the final team to qualify from Group A and as we keep a close eye on the result allow us to welcome you all for the coverage of the last game of the qualifying stage involving Sri Lanka and the Netherlands. There is nothing much to gain for these two teams as Sri Lanka have already booked their place in the Super 12 and the Dutch team surprisingly missed the bus quite early.

    Sri Lanka have been pretty much clinical in their performances so far in the tournament. They first beat Namibia by a comfortable margin of 7 wickets and then despite a nervy start against Ireland they outclassed them by 70 runs. The Netherlands on the other hand despite being a strong team on paper lost to Ireland in their opening encounter and were surprisingly knocked out by Namibia in the next game. The Dutch team has quite a few utility players for this format and with nothing much to lo

    The captain of Sri Lanka
    The captain of Sri Lanka Dasun Shanaka says that they will bowl first. He adds that it is mainly because they will be playing three games here and they can understand the conditions better. He says that he did not see the last match but in the Indian T20 League chasing was better on this pitch. He mentions one change Charith Asalanka comes in for Dinesh Chandimal. Says that they have a young group and it is all about execution.

    Terrific performance by the Islanders
    Terrific performance by the Islanders this is just the momentum they needed entering into the Super 12s. Their bowlers were right on the money and didn't put a foot wrong. The spinners first created havoc with Theekshana and Hasaranga coming together and scalping 5 wickets in the Powerplay. After that their pacers finished the job with Lahiru Kumara hunting down three wickets. There is nothing to write home about the Dutch batting as they looked completely at sea against some quality spin and

    All out in the blink of an eye! What a dominating bowling show from Sri Lanka! It all started with a run out and after that Maheesh Theekshana Wanindu Hasaranga and Lahiru Kumara joined the party and ran through the batting line-up of the Dutch team. This is the second-lowest total in T20 World Cup history the lowest being 39 also belonging to the Netherlands against Sri Lanka in 2014.

    A very interesting game is going on at the moment between Ireland and Namibia to decide the final team to qualify from Group A and as we keep a close eye on the result, allow us to welcome you all for the coverage of the last game of the qualifying stage involving Sri Lanka and the Netherlands. There is nothing much to gain for these two teams as Sri Lanka have already booked their place in the Super 12 and the Dutch team, surprisingly, missed the bus quite early.

    Sri Lanka have been pretty much clinical in their performances so far in the tournament. They first beat Namibia by a comfortable margin of 7 wickets and then despite a nervy start against Ireland, they outclassed them by 70 runs. The Netherlands, on the other hand, despite being a strong team on paper lost to Ireland in their opening encounter and were surprisingly knocked out by Namibia in the next game.

    The captain of Sri Lanka, Dasun Shanaka, says that they will bowl first. He adds that it is mainly because they will be playing three games here and they can understand the conditions better. He says that he did not see the last match but in the Indian T20 League, chasing was better on this pitch. He mentions one change, Charith Asalanka comes in for Dinesh Chandimal.

    Terrific performance by the Islanders
    Terrific performance by the Islanders, this is just the momentum they needed entering into the Super 12s. Their bowlers were right on the money and didn't put a foot wrong. The spinners first created havoc with Theekshana and Hasaranga coming together and scalping 5 wickets in the Powerplay. After that, their pacers finished the job with Lahiru Kumara hunting down three wickets. There is nothing to write home about the Dutch batting as they looked completely at sea against some quality spin and

    Dushmantha Chameera to Roelof van der Merwe
    OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Chameera goes short and hurls it around off at 89 mph, there is some extra bounce as the ball lands and Roelof van der Merwe leans back to use the pace of the bowler and ramp it towards third man. He misses and there is some noise as it goes past the bat. Kusal Perera catches and appeals, Dushmantha Chameera is not interested much but all the other Lankan players are excited.

    Wanindu Hasaranga to Pieter Seelaar
    OUT! Plumb in front! Netherlands are completely at sea in front of some quality spin bowling. Tossed up ball, landing full and around off, Pieter Seelaar stays on the back foot when he should have been forward and tries to defend. The ball turns in slightly to beat his bat and strikes him on the pads. That's very much plumb and the umpire agrees. Wanindu Hasaranga has three wickets in the match.

    Lahiru Kumara to Paul van Meekeren
    OUT! Netherlands have been bundled out for 44 here! Another sharp yorker from Lahiru Kumara, around middle and leg, Paul van Meekeren tries to dig it out but misses. He is hit on the boot, they appeal and the umpire raises his finger in no time. That looked to be going down the leg side but Netherlands have no reviews left.
