Sri Lanka are already through to the next stage of the 2021 T20 World Cup and the Netherlands are already knocked out of the competition.

Thus, this match is what is known as a dead rubber, but we do not expect there to be any lack of intensity shown by either side. Sri Lanka will want to take some momentum into the Super 12s stage, while the Netherlands will not want to end the competition with another loss. Who will win? Read this T20 World Cup prediction to find out.

Sri Lanka Team Preview

Sri Lanka lost three wickets for barely any runs against Ireland, and they would have been fearing an upset, but luckily for them Wanindu Hasaranga came to the rescue and launched a great counter-attack, while Pathum Nissanka also played really well. In the end, Sri Lanka had enough quality to win the game and qualify for the next stage.

When it comes to batting units, we have absolutely no doubt that Sri Lanka has a lot more batting strength than the Dutch. If you are after some value, then we recommend that you take a look a betting on the total number of sixes that Sri Lanka will score. The Sharjah Cricket Stadium is a small one, but the pitch is a bit slow and does not let batsmen clear the boundary ropes easily. Thus, betting on "under" for the total number of sixes is a good bet to place.

The real advantage Sri Lanka will have in this match comes from their brilliant spinner. Maheesh Theekshana and Hasaranga will be fighting it out for the wickets in this match, so betting on one of them to be the Top Bowler for Sri Lanka is a good bet to make. If you want, bet on both of them to hedge your bets a bit.

Netherlands Team Preview

The Dutch have been really disappointing at this World Cup and now they are playing the hardest team in the group before they head home earlier than they would have liked. The team's batting has been sub-standard, and they have not been able to get anywhere near the number of runs they need to trouble teams. We think that their batting lineup will struggle against the spin that the Sharjah pitch generates, so we recommend that you avoid the batting T20 World cup betting markets for the Netherlands.

The standout bowler for the Dutch has been Fred Klaassen, but the conditions might favour the likes of Roelof van der Merwe. If you want to bet on the Top Bowler for the Netherlands, then put your money on one of these bowlers.

Toss Prediction

The captain that is lucky enough to win the toss will want to bowl first. We have seen the team batting second have a big disadvantage in previous games, so this is something you need to take into consideration when you are placing your wagers.

Pitch Conditions

The conditions will almost certainly be spinner-friendly, but since this is an evening game there is a chance that a bit of dew might fall during the second half of the match. This means that batting second could be a lot easier because the dew will nullify the spin bowlers to an extent. The team that bat first will think that a score of about 140 is par.

Our Match Prediction

We are going to put our money on Sri Lanka to win this game. Although they stuttered a tiny bit against the two other teams in the group, they have shown plenty of depth to recover and go on to win quite comfortably. The Netherlands, on the other hand, have lost both of their T20 World Cup group games, and we do not see them breaking this run against Sri Lanka.
