Sri Lanka vs Scotland Pre-Match Analysis

Ireland’s World Cup dreams were dashed when Sri Lanka beat them by 133 runs and moved on to the Super Six round. Sri Lanka has now won two games in a row, and they still have to play Ireland and Scotland. Once again, Wanindu Hasaranga was the highlight of the performance. He took his second five-wicket haul in ODIs, and second in as many games, as Oman was knocked out for just 98. Sri Lanka chose to bowl first, and Kashyap Prajapati was out in the second over when Lahiru Kumara (3/22) took him out. He added the captain, Zeeshan Maqsood, and Mohammad Nadeem. Aqib Ilyas was sent back to the field by Kasun Rajitha, and Oman fell to 20 for four. 

Before Hasaranga came in, Jatinder Singh (21) and Ayaan Khan (41) put up 52 runs together. This gave hope that the team could get back on track. His three wickets in one over broke the middle order of the Omani team, putting them in a very bad position at 72 for seven. Hasaranga finally got rid of Ayaan before trapping Bilal Khan’s leg before ending the game. Pathum Nissanka (39 not out) smashed Bilal for four over point on the very first ball of Sri Lanka’s chase. The pair never really looked in trouble. In the seventh over, when Karunaratne hit his fifth boundary of the innings, they reached 50 runs together. 

Sri Lanka has now won two games in a row, and they still have to play Ireland and Scotland. Oman may have lost for the first time, but if they beat Scotland in their next game, they can still make it to the Super Six.

Scotland was also in the Super Six before the match was even over. At the Bulawayo Athletic Club, Scotland beat the UAE by 111 runs thanks to the captain’s knock of Richie Berrington. After the UAE put Scotland in and got them down to 48 for four, Junaid Siddique (3/49) and Ali Naseer (2/37) were dangerous with the new ball. Karthik Meiyappan gave them a much-needed break, but Chris Greaves (22) helped them even more in a partnership of 51 runs. 

Jack Jarvis’s two runs didn’t last long, but when Mark Watt came in, he gave Berrington more help. Watt hit a perfect 44 from 31 balls as the pair put on 110. Berrington played a great innings, hitting nine fours and three sixes. He was finally run out on the last ball of the innings, giving Scotland a score of 282 for eight. That was more than enough, as Chris Sole took two wickets in two balls and ended up with three for 37, bringing the UAE’s score down to 34 for 3.
