SL vs IRE Today Match Prediction: Sri Lanka and Ireland, the two teams that have fought their way into the Super 12 through the Qualifiers will face off against each other for Match 15 of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. Both these teams won one game each in the last stage and had to depend on the net run rate to qualify for the Super 12. The Asia Cup Champions Sri Lanka will quite vary of the fact that Ireland pipped the 2-time champions West Indies to reach this stage. To add to that, the fact that Ireland had already played both their qualifiers at Bellerive Oval, gives them a slight advantage over Sri Lanka who were stationed at Geelong. It will be interesting to see if Ireland uses these to their advantage against Sri Lanka, this Sunday.

SL vs IRE Prediction- Who Will Win Today’s Match Between Sri Lanka and Ireland

  • On the batting front, Sri Lanka has a far more experienced and versatile batting order than Ireland.
  • Irish batting which is packed with power hitters is quite volatile. They can win you matches on their day, and on the other days, they could tumble like a pack of cards.
  • Injury to Pramod Madushan and Dushmantha Chameera will have a serious hit on the strength of the Sri Lankan pace bowling unit.
  • In the spin bowling department, Sri Lanka has probably the best spin unit in the competition second to Afghanistan.
  • The last time these two sides faced off against each other in a T20I match, Sri Lanka defeated Ireland by 70 runs.
