Cricket Match Preview:

Scotland will take on Sri Lanka at Edinburgh in the first ODI of the two ODIs scheduled against each other. Sri Lanka have arrived in the continent for the upcoming World Cup, which will begin in less than two weeks’ time. These two ODIs will be beneficial for the preparation of the Sri Lankan side. Scotland, on the other hand, after facing Afghanistan, will be getting the game time against another international side.

Scotland, on the other hand, will be led by Kyle Coetzer in this cricket series as well and they will be looking to give a good account of themselves. They gave a good performance against Afghanistan in the second ODI after the first cricket ODI was washed out due to rain. On winning the toss, Scotland decided to bat first and scored 325 runs against a depleted Afghanistan bowling unit.

Skippers Coetzer and Calum McLeod played fine innings of 79 and 100, respectively. Buoyed by their knocks, Scotland managed to put on a good score. However, their bowling left a lot to be desired and Afghanistan reached their target easily. In order to be taken seriously and to consistently play the ODIs, Scotland will have to challenge the opposition with their bowling.

Sri Lanka have a new captain in Dimuth Karunaratne for this cricket series as well as the upcoming World Cup. They will have ample experience in their rank with the presence of Angelo Matthews, Lasith Malinga and Suranga Lakmal in the side. They have not had a great run in ODIs since the last World Cup.

While in the previous World Cup, they had the likes of Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardena in their side, since their departure, the side has struggled to come to terms with modern day ODI cricket. They have struggled everywhere including in home conditions in the last four years and it will take some miraculous turnaround for them to do well in the World Cup.

Cricket Match Information:

Scotland will take on Sri Lanka in the first of the two ODIs scheduled between the two sides. Sri Lanka will be using this cricket series to acclimatise to these conditions as similar conditions are expected in the upcoming World Cup. Scotland, on the other hand, are looking for some game time against an international side after failing to qualify for the World Cup.

Scotland

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Scotland will be led by Kyle Coetzer in this cricket game. They last played a cricket game against Afghanistan recently. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Scotland’s playing XI:

  • MH Cross
  • Kyle Coetzer
  • CS Macleod
  • RD Berrington
  • HG Munsey
  • MRJ Watt
  • CD Wallace
  • AC Evans
  • TB Sole
  • SM Shariff
  • BTJ Wheat

Sri Lanka

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sri Lanka last played an ODI against South Africa in South Africa. They were whitewashed in that cricket series. They have a new captain in Dimuth Karunaratne and he will be looking to change the fortune of a struggling side. Our prediction is of some changes to their lineup since their last ODI cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Sri Lanka’s playing XI:

  • Dimuth Karunaratne
  • Lahiru Thirimanne
  • Kusal Mendis
  • Kusal Perera
  • Angelo Matthews
  • Thisara Perera
  • Dhananjaya de Silva
  • Lasith Malinga
  • Suranga Lakmal
  • Nuwan Pradeep
  • Jeffrey Vandersey

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Dimuth Karunaratne will be the new skipper for Sri Lanka. He has a difficult task on his hand as Sri Lanka has not had a good ODI record for a while now. As a result, he needs to lead from the front from the beginning of this cricket series. Our prediction is of a good performance from him.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international ODI cricket game was played here between Scotland and Afghanistan recently. Despite Scotland scoring 325 runs, Afghanistan beat them by two runs via D/L method. Our prediction is of the score of around 300 runs this time around as well. Conditions are expected to be cold and windy.

Our Prediction:

Sri Lanka will begin the game of cricket as favourites. They are an experienced side and that should give them an edge against the hosts. Hence, our prediction is of Sri Lanka’s win in the first ODI cricket game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Kusal Mendis (SL) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Lasith Malinga (SL) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Thisara Perera (SL)
