Netherlands vs Sri Lanka, ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Match – 12: Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you in creating your fantasy team for Match 12 of T20 World Cup 2021 between Netherlands and Sri Lanka in Sharjah

It is the last match of the qualifiers stage of ICC T20 World Cup 2021 and it’s a dead rubber to end. The Netherlands need a miraculous effort to win against a romping Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka are already through to the super’s stage with two wins and a healthy net run rate of 3.165 and they will be eyeing to make it three out of three and march into the super’s stage with confidence. In T20Is, Sri Lanka have played against the Netherlands once and have emerged victorious.

SUGGESTED TEAM

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre Based on algorithms, we have come up with one team

GROUND DETAILS

In the recently completed IPL 2021, Sharjah had become a graveyard for batsmen. The slow and sticky pitches made it extremely difficult for the batsmen to play their free-flowing strokes. On an average, only 137 runs were scored in the first innings in 10 matches played at this venue. In comparison, Dubai and Abu Dhabi had seen 150+ in the first innings.

Even though the pitches were slow, the fast bowlers were on top. Most of the wickets by pacers came off slower deliveries, 26.5 percent to be precise. In the 10 matches played in IPL 2021, pacers had bagged 69.7 percent of the wickets as compared to 30.3 percent by spinners. Pacers had picked up a wicket every 17.5 balls in comparison to 22.8 by spinners.

SUGGESTED CAPTAINS

The Sri Lankan all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga has been a savior. In the previous match as well, Hasaranga scored 71 runs to bail out Sri Lanka from trouble. In T20Is since his debut in September, Hasaranga has been one of the most successful bowlers in T20Is with 39 wickets – second most. His all-round capabilities make him a suitable captain for the fantasy team.

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Hasaranga could score 8-12 runs and pick up 0-1 wicket against NL

X-FACTORS

In his maiden T20 World Cup edition, the mystery spinner, Ajantha Mendis-esque, Maheesh Theekshana has had an excellent start. In both the matches, he has bagged three wickets each and has bagged those six wickets at a strike rate of 8.0. The wizardry of Theekshana has landed a lot of batsmen in trouble and is certainly an X-factor

Our Criclytics player projections predicts, Theekshana could pick up 2-3 wickets against NL

Though the Netherlands have crashed out of the tournament, there was one player who has been the silver lining and its Max O’Dowd. In both the matches, he has 50+ scores. In T20Is in 2021, O’Dowd has scored over 250 runs at an average of 58.6. 

Our Criclytics player projections predicts, O’Dowd could score 32-48 runs against SL

The left-arm medium pacer Fred Klaassen has bagged 19 wickets in T20Is at a bowling strike rate of 19. Though the pacer hasn’t had a great time in this T20 World Cup, he has been a major contributor for the Netherlands with the ball.

Our Criclytics player projections predicts, Klaassen could pick up 2-3 wickets against SL
