Sri Lanka and Namibia will face off in the first match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup on October 16. Sri Lanka and Namibia are in group A of the qualifiers. Both teams registered convincing wins in their respective warm-up matches in Melbourne.
Sri Lanka will be the overwhelming favourites to win against Namibia. Dasun Shanaka and Co are the Asian champions and are a formidable side in the shortest format of the game. Moreover, they have genuine match-winners in the side. The likes of Kusal Mendis, Pathum Nissanka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa can take the game away from the opposition single-handedly. Namibia will hope that they can be at the top of their game and cause an upset against Sri Lanka. David Wiese will be the key player for Namibia on Sunday
