SL vs NED: Simonds Stadium, Geelong Pitch Report & Weather Forecast
This pitch has been balanced one. We have witnessed low-scoring games here and pacers enjoy the conditions here. So the toss winner might opt to bat first and later put pressure on the opponent.
The weather forecast says it will be Mostly Sunny. The temperature will be around 14 to 18 degrees.
Sri Lanka have been suffering with injuries from the starts. Earlier Dilshan Madushanka and now another pacer Dushmantha Chameera has been ruled out of the tournament. Chameera suffered a calf injury while bowling against United Arab Emirates that day. So Madushanka’s replacement Binura Fernando might play tomorrow. Lahiru Kumara likely to replace Dushmantha Chameera. Even Pramod Madushan will miss tomorrow’s clash against Netherlands.
