Sri Lanka find themselves in a troublesome spot in Group A of the T20 World Cup qualifiers after a shock loss to Namibia in their opening match. The Asian Cup champions are bottom of the points table and need a resounding victory over the United Arab Emirates at Geelong’s Simonds Stadium. It’s a do-or-die battle for these two teams as the United Arab Emirates also head into the contest following a loss against the Netherlands. Batting was the main issue for both nations in their previous matches as they failed to establish key partnerships. Sri Lanka had just three players scoring in double figures, something you can’t afford when you’re chasing 164. It takes massive improvements from the teams and also the right attitude to get the points in this crucial game. Sri Lanka versus United Arab Emirates will be broadcast on the Star Sports network and streamed on the Hotstar app from 1:30pm IST.

For Sri Lanka to dominate with the bat, it is imperative that Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis get big runs. The duo failed against Namibia and from Sri Lanka’s point of view it is imperative that they live up to their expectations. Captain Dasun Shanaka is the trusted batsman in the middle order and the UAE will have to be careful with the threat he poses. Their bowling game was largely flat against Namibia and the likes of Dushmantha Chameera and Pramod Madushan will have to work on their economy rate.
The brilliance of Junaid Siddique and Zahoor Khan with the bowl meant that the UAE came very close to a victory against the Netherlands. His strength lies in his pace of attack which can upset the best on his day. Muhammad Waseem managed to get some runs in the previous game and he may be the player to keep the UAE innings together.
