Pitch report:

The pitch of Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow was reconstructed just before the ICC World Cup and currently it provides equal assistance to the batters & bowlers. Previously the pitch was totally spinner friendly pitch and in the later part, the pitch tended to become slow and forced the batters to take slow shorts. However, the scenario has changed a lot. Now batters & bowlers both can take advantage of the pitch which will make the game more attractive.

Weather report:

According to the weather department the temperature will be around 31 degrees Celsius, the precipitation will be around 0%, the humidity will be around 48% and the wind speed will be 10 km/hr.
As the humidity will be high, it is obvious that it will make the Netherlands players exhausted. On the other hand, the Lankan players will get the advantage of the similar weather.

Netherlands squad:

Scott Edwards (captain), Max O’Dowd, Bas de Leede, Vikram Singh, Teja Nidamanuru, Paul van Meekeren, Colin Ackermann, Roelof van der Merwe, Logan van Beek, Aryan Dutt, Ryan Klein, Wesley Barresi, Saqib Zulfiqar, Shariz Ahmad, Sybrand Engelbrecht.

Sri Lanka squad:

Kusal Mendis (Captain), Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Janith, Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dunith Wellalage, Dushan Hemantha, Dilshan Madushanka, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara, Maheesh Theekshana & Matheesha Pathirana. It is important to mention that Angelo Mathews & Dushmantha Chameera are all set to join Sri Lanka’s World Cup squad in Lucknow on Friday as traveling reserves.

Our prediction:

We predict that the Netherlands will win this match.
The Netherlands is holding the 8th position on the point table with a run rate (NRR) of -0.993 while Sri Lanka is holding the 10th position on the point table with a run rate (NRR) of -1.532. Netherlands is high on confidence after defeating a strong team like South Africa while Sri Lanka has not won a single match till now. If the Netherlands wins the toss and opts for batting in the first innings, they will be able to put pressure on the Lankan team. Chasing will be difficult for the Lankan team under floodlight.
