Netherlands vs Sri Lanka will be the 19th ICC Cricket World Cup match at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow, on October 21, 2023.
The Netherlands stunned the world cricket once again as they won their last match against the in-form South Africa team. It was the 2nd biggest upset of the World Cup, just after Afghanistan defeated England a day ago. The Netherlands gave their all to defeat the South Africa team, who were amazing in their last two matches, smashing down other opponents. Scott Edwards and the bowling unit of the Netherlands did the miracle for the team as the team was 140-7, but then came the captain of the Netherlands, Edwards, and scored 78 not out.
Edwards was happy with their efforts in the last match, which he said in the post-interview.
Extremely proud. We came in with high expectations. We had very good players. Happy to get the first win out of the way. Hopefully, few more wins. We do a fair bit of research. We come up with a few matchups. Some days it works and some days it doesn’t. We were in decent positions in the first few games but then fell away. I am sure there will be plenty of fans staying up and watching this. Extremely happy with the win.Scott Edwards said in the post match presentation.
It will be a tough fight between the Netherlands and Sri Lanka as both are decent teams who can come over the top on their day, but Sri Lanka will still have the upper hand in terms of spin department.
Sri Lanka lost their last match against Australia even after having an amazing opening partnership of 125 runs, but then they lost ten wickets under 80 runs, which was the most disappointing batting by their middle order because if they had scored around 250+, then it would have been a tough battle for Australia to win. Sri Lanka needs to perform better as they already lost 3 out of 3 matches they played in the World Cup till now. It will be a must-win match for them, and they will play against the weakest opponent in the tournament.
