Sri Lanka and Ireland will play in the 8th match of ICC T20 World Cup 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will cover SL vs IRE Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka has been one of the strongest teams, but, unfortunately, they are playing the qualifiers. They won their first match comfortably by seven wickets and are positioned at the top of Group A’s ICC T20 World Cup 2021 points table.

Nissanka and Kusal Perera fell early without scoring much, and even the experienced batsman Dinesh Chandimal did not play well. In the middle, Avishka Fernando and Bhanuka Rajapaksa batted well and finished the game for SL.

The bowling department did a fantastic job as Theekshana picked up three wickets, Hasaranga and Lahiru Kumara picked up two wickets each. The bowlers appeared to be in good form, but the batsmen need to perform better in the upcoming matches.


Ireland has also won its first match against the Netherlands and is at the 2nd position on Group A points table.

Paul Stirling scored decently but played a lot of balls. Kevin O’Brien and Balbirinie got out early in the last match, but Daleny batted brilliantly, scoring 44 runs and finishing the team’s game. 

The bowlers’ performance was mindblowing, especially Curtis Campher, who picked up four wickets, and Mark Adair picked up three wickets. Ireland is a strong side and has a good chance of qualifying for the Super 12.

The pitch has behaved slowly as far as the last two matches are concerned. But the batsmen have played comfortably in the second innings and won the matches. So it is still too early to predict how the pitch will behave in the upcoming games.
