Against Scotland in their most recent game, Sri Lanka batted first and had a decent start but kept losing wickets at regular intervals. However, they managed to build good partnerships for the fourth and fifth wickets, with Nissanka and Asalanka scoring half-centuries. They posted a total of 245 runs on the scoreboard. In response, Scotland were bowled out for 163 runs. Although some of the Scotland players got starts, they failed to convert them into big scores.
Netherlands faced West Indies in their most recent match. Batting first, West Indies posted a formidable total of 374 runs on the board.
In response, the Netherlands started their innings strongly, before the match ended in a tie. This was followed by a Super Over, in which Logan van Beek of the Netherlands scored 30 runs off Jason Holder’s over. The West Indies team couldn’t chase down the target, and the Netherlands emerged victorious in a thrilling encounter.
