Venue Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow


The pitches at Ekana Stadium have produced many low-scoring matches, providing an advantage to spinners and slower bowlers. However, for the World Cup, the wickets being used will be fresh, some prepared with black soil, which could make the surface livelier. These are bowling-friendly pitches so it is difficult to bat on these pitches. The average score in the four ODIs batting first at this pitch is 188.


These teams have faced each other in the ODI format in 5 matches out of which Sri Lanka has won 5 whereas Netherlands lost all. In the T20I, they played 3 matches, and again SL won all and Netherlands lost 3 of them.

Let’s evaluate the SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) of both teams:

Team Netherland Strengths

The team’s strength is their formidable all-rounders. Their player Bas de Leede, Teja Nidamanuru, and Max O’Dowd showcase their prowess with both the ball and the bat. Additionally, they have Colin Ackermann, and Shariz Ahmad who can contribute significantly in both aspects. As part-time options, their player Vikramjit Singh’s bowling and Logan van Beek’s batting can also be useful.

Team Netherland Weaknesses

This team faces challenges dealing with spin. During the ICC World Cup Qualifiers 2023, Netherlands spinners and this team struggled the most against Sri Lanka, losing 11 of their 20 wickets. At this bowling pitch, the Dutch batters might find it difficult to excel. Aryan Dutt is the only main-line spinner and they have only two spin bowling options.

Opportunities for Team Netherland 

The only opportunity this team has is, their key players Scott Edwards, Logan van Beek, and Teja Nidamanuru who have a wealth of international cricket experience. Aryan Dutt, Vikramjit Singh, and Bas de Leede infuse the team with a calm and calculated nature.

Threats for Team Netherland

Their biggest threat is they have nothing to lose. The Sri Lanka team is a big threat for them as they have not even won a single match in any format from them. The Netherlands team in this World Cup even not doing well and is at the bottom of the current point table.

In the batting line, their strengths are Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, and Dhananjaya de Silva.

Team Sri Lanka’s Weaknesses

Their players’ injuries are the SL’s biggest concern in this World Cup. Unluckily, they will play this match without their key player Wanindu Hasaranga, who is the second-best bowler of team Sri Lanka according to Men’s ODI Bowling Rankings.

Opportunities for Team Sri Lanka

The opportunity for the SL team is their players’ well-known conditions about the Indian pitches. Dasun Shananka, their skipper has an impressive record in recent ODI. According to this match, they have enough confidence to win against the Netherlands as they won all the matches against Sri Lanka.

Threats for Team Sri Lanka

This team is full of new and young players who are not enough experienced. This is a big threat and also makes them lose their confidence to win. The Sri Lanka team is struggling in this World Cup and lost all the matches they played.


In this bowling pitch, Sri Lanka having the best bowlers has more chances to win. Sri Lanka also won all the matches against the Netherlands. If we look at the team Netherlands, they won one match in this World Cup 2023 while Sri Lanka lost all. This can strengthen the NED team to win.
