Preview

It's now time for another much-awaited clash in World T20 Cup with Sri Lanka up against minnows Namibia in Match 4 in Abu Dhabi. Dasun Shanaka's side will undoubtedly start as favourites in this contest, considering the quality of players in their side. On the other hand, it will be a big test for Namibia who would want to start the tournament with a positive display.

Both the sides had rather contrasting performances in warm-up games with Sri Lanka winning 2 in 2 and Namibia losing both. Can Gerhard Erasmus' side put the disappointment aside and produce a sensational upset on Monday? Let's wait and watch!

Key Players

Analysis

Among the wicketkeepers, Namibia's Zane Green can be an exciting pick considering his impressive batting at top of the order in two warm-up games. Kusal Perera should also be a part of your side as he has the ability to play a big knock on his day. Avishka Fernando is coming on the back of scoring two outstanding fifties and will be a good choice for captain/vice-captain. Craig Williams, Gerhard Erasmus and Charith Asalanka are also good options to have in your side.

There will be some handy all-rounders on display with players like Wanindu Hasaranga, David Wiese and Dasun Shanaka. In the bowling department, Dushmantha Chameera and Ruben Trumpelmann could get some points with their wicket-taking abilities.
