SL vs IRE Dream11 Today Match Prediction: The most awaited match of the Group gets underway on the 20th of October. Two strong teams, Sri Lanka and Ireland who had a great start to the tournament will face off against each other to find a place in the super 12. Both teams have tasted great success in the last couple of games that they played and hence it will be a tightly contested match.

SL vs IRE T20 World Cup Dream11 Prediction

Sri Lanka

  • Sri Lanka won the first match quite comfortably.
  • B Rajapaksa stared with the bat as he scored a well-made 42.
  • Mahesh Theekashana picked up 3 wickets in the last match.

Ireland

  • Ireland thrashed the Netherlands in the first group match.
  • Curtis Campher picked up 4 wickets in that match including a hattrick.
  • Gareth Delany stared with the bat as he scored 44 runs.

SL vs IRE Today Match Prediction

Both teams are in fine form and on their day, both teams can get the better of their opposition. Ireland has a very solid bowling line-up. But their batting lineup has to step up more if they are to compete against mighty Sri Lanka. The latter on the other hand have a very solid playing eleven with the right kind of personnel. So expect a tightly contested match where bowlers will have a lot of say.

SL vs IRE Winning Chances

Both teams have what it takes to defeat any opposition on their day. But taking into account the overall team composition, current form, and amount of match-winners in the lineup, Sri Lanka starts as slight favourites for this match. That being said, you cannot count our Ireland. The prominent betting sites are predicting an Ireland win by a slight margin.

Betway- IRE- 2.87, SL- 1.36
