SL VS IRE: Overview

The top run scorer for them was their opening hitter, Kusal Mendis, who made 54 off of 29 balls. Also contributing was Wanindu Hasaranga, who played a cameo role and scored 37 off of 14 balls. After that, Chamika Karunaratne and Maheesh Theekshana both took two wickets for their respective teams.

After suffering a defeat to Namibia by 11 runs in their first warm-up match, Ireland, led by Andrew Balbirnie, will take the field in the upcoming match. Their bowlers did a fantastic job, as seen by their success in limiting Namibia to 138/4. Gareth Delany, Simi Singh, and Barry McCarthy each took one wicket to end the innings.

Despite this, Ireland was unable to win the match after being bowled out for 127 runs in 19.5 overs. Although Paul Stirling and Lorcan Tucker earned scores of 37 and 34, respectively, it was not enough to save them from defeat. Harry Tector, who has been playing quite well as of late, did not remember to log into his account.

Finally, Ireland found redemption in their last match against West Indies by defeating them by 9 wickets in the group stage. This led them to enter the contest against Sri Lanka.

SL vs IRE: Head to Head

Both Sri Lanka and Ireland have competed against one another twice in T20 matches. Sri Lanka has emerged triumphant from both of these contests, whilst Ireland has been unable to claim victory in any of them.

SL vs IRE: Key Players


Joshua Little is a batsman who bats right-handed and bowls medium-fast with his left arm. He is from Ireland. So far in this competition, he has hunted a total of four wickets.

Sri Lanka

Pathum Nissanka is an artist to keep an eye on. In the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup 2022, he scored 55 runs without being out against Pakistan. This is his second consecutive fifty in a Twenty20 International; he also made one against India. He is currently ranked seventh in the batters’ charts.

As a result of the fact that Nissanka scored over 70 only once during each of the away series in India and Australia, he will be looking to improve his consistency. In both of those series, he failed to score over 50 again.

Shanaka is a captain for Sri Lanka who leads by example, and his lower-order hitting was extremely important to the success of his team during the Asia Cup.
