Probable Best Batter Of The Match
Kusal Perera (Sri Lanka)
Kusal PereKusal Perera is someone who can take a game away from his opponent with his daring power play hitting game. The southpaw prefers to go bowling from the beginning. In the first game against Namibia he started with two glorious fours. But he got off Ruben Trumpelmann when he tried to fly offside.
Probable Best Bowler Of The Match
Wanindu Hasaranga (Sri Lanka)
Wanindu Hasaranga has been very successful in his short T20 career so far. In the previous game against Namibia, the leg thrower made a good pitch. The tweaker collected two wickets from Craig Williams and LoftieEaton and gave away just 24 runs of four overs. Not forgetting that Hasaranga can also carry the grass well with a stick.
