Sri Lanka will be favourites going into the fixture,having got the better of South Africa in their opening game. The hosts scored 165 runs with Kusal Perera top scoring with 61. However, in spite of a middle order collapse, the Lankans did well to take the total past 150, with Angelo Matthews scoring 43 crucial runs for the side.

Their bowling attack is among the best in the world, with the likes of Lasith malinga a veteran in this format of the game. The likes of Ajantha Mendis are relatively unknown to the minnows in the sport and are likely to create havoc against a Netherlands side who are not used to facing top class opposition.

Meanwhile, Netherlands are capable of putting in surprises but are unlikely to make hay this time around with the quality surrounding Lanka. The Lankans have a habit of putting away weaker opposition with relative ease and Netherlands, given their experience have to come up with a brilliant performance to take anything out of the fixture.

Tom Cooper and Stephan Myburgh have to be at their best for the associate team to make an impact while the onus will also be on wicketlkeeper batsman Wesley Barresi to put the pressure on the opposition.
