    SL Playing 11

    • Sri Lanka faced a massive defeat to the hands of Namibia which means they did not just lose the game but lost it big, which had an effect on their Net Run Rate. They will have to win by a big margin in order to get through to the Super 12.
    • Namibia were 95/6 at the end of 15 overs. From thereon, they went on to put up a total of 163. The Asia Cup Champions gave away 68 runs in 5 overs. Sri Lanka will have to improve their death bowling if they want to give themselves any chance of a Super 12 berth.
    • None of the batters clicked against Namibia. The game against Namibia comes as a wake up call for the Sri Lankans and they should assess their game and find solutions to their problems.

    UAE  Playing 11

    • UAE gave a great fight to the Netherlands to defend a score as low as 111. However, they need to improve their batting. Apart from Muhammad Waseem all the other batters failed to impress.
    • Junaid Siddique impressed everyone with his bowling and he was the pick of the bowlers for UAE.
    • UAE need to better their efforts on the field. The captain CP Rizwan put down a regulation catch which cost them the match. Thus, UAE need to pull up their socks and field well in the next game.
    • Given the nature of the result, UAE are expected to play the same side for this encounter.
