Namibia vs Sri Lanka, ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Match 4: Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you create your fantasy team for Match 4 of the ICC T20 World Cup between Namibia and Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi.

One of the firm favourites to progress to the Super 12 of the ICC T20 World Cup, Sri Lanka will lock horns against Namibia on Monday, 18th October in an evening encounter at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Sri Lanka will enter this iconic tournament riding high on confidence after their 2-1 win against India at home earlier this year. On the other hand, Namibia have a win percentage of 81.8 and have won 18 out of the 22 matches they have played thus far. The two sides are yet to face each other in the T20 international. 

SUGGESTED TEAM

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. You can use this tool to build your team with the help of algorithms. Based on your preferences, the platform will guide you through creating the ideal fantasy XI.

GROUND DETAILS

One of the three venues in the recently concluded Indian Premier League, the wicket at the Zayed Cricket Stadium is expected to get slower as the game progresses. The average first innings total at this ground is around the 150-run mark. The pace bowlers have conceded at an economy rate of 7.5 compared to 6.6 by the spinners and picked up 93 wickets since 2019 in T20 international matches. 

SUGGESTED CAPTAIN

Wanindu Hasaranga

Wanindu Hasaranga has been one of the vital cogs in the bowling unit of Sri Lanka and often picked up crucial wickets to dent the opposition batting unit in the middle overs. With 36 wickets in 23 innings at an average of 15.45, the leg spinner is second on the ICC T20I bowling rankings. The 24-year old will be one of the players to watch out for in this encounter. 

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Hasaranga to pick up 0-1 wickets in this match. 

X-FACTORS

David Wiese

David Wiese will be one of the key players for the Namibia side heading into this world event. Plying his trade for South Africa in the early stages of his career, the all-around has years of experience in this form of the game. One of the strengths of Wiese is his ability to take pace off the ball and making optimum use of the variation in his arsenal. With the sluggish wickets on offer, his ability to use the variations will be vital. The 36-year old will also provide the team with much-needed impetus down the order with his attacking style of play.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Weise to score 17-25 runs and pick up 0-1 wickets in this match. 

Avishka Fernando

The right-handed batter has been in sublime form leading up to this mega-event by notching up consistent performances in the warm-ups games. While Avishka Fernando is an opening batsman, he batted in the middle order during the lead-up to the tournament. With three half-centuries in the last five encounters, the 23-year old will be one of the X factors heading into tomorrow's clash. 

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Fernando to score 29-43 runs in this match.

Craig Williams

Craig Williams is one of the mainstays in the batting unit of Namibia in this competition. The 37-year old has been in prolific form in the build-up to this event by smashed four half-centuries in the last five encounters. With 508 runs in 18 innings at an average of 33. 86, the right-handed batter will be a crucial player and shoulder the bulk of the responsibility of the side in the batting department. 

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Williams to score 32-48 runs in this match.
