Netherlands vs Sri Lanka Betting Tips 22/10/2021

Teams Status


This is a dead rubber for both these teams. Sri Lanka have already qualified for the next round, thanks to their back-to-back wins, whereas the Netherlands are out of the competition due to their twin defeats in as many matches.

The Dutch were expected to compete for the second spot in Group A behind Sri Lanka but that hasn’t been the case at all.

They were upset by Namibia in their last game, which when coupled with their loss to Ireland earlier, set them up for a potential winless campaign.

In the loss to the Namibians, they did play well, first amassing a decent total of 164-4 and then remaining on top for much of the first half of the run chase. Then, as you all know, David Wiese went berserk and so a match the Dutch should have won, was lost.

The Dutch couldn’t beat two much easier sides earlier. Thus, the chances of them springing any surprises on the Lankans remain slim, if not nonexistent.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka are already through to the next round, which means they can use this match to get some more practice, hone talent for the future, or even try out some fringe players.

They’ve won both their matches so far with ease, first thrashing Namibia by seven wickets before inflicting a 70-run defeat on Ireland in their last game.

They do still have their issues to work on. Against Ireland, a bulk of their scoring was done by just two batters, Pathum Nissanka and Wanindu Hasarange de Silva, who contributed 61 and 71 respectively while the rest of the batters failed around them.

Such a one or two-man-show kind of performance would do against the minnows competing at this stage but not against the big guns waiting in the Super 12s.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Netherlands to win @ 5.55

We’d like to take a small punt on the Netherlands here. The Sri Lankans are already through and may not care much about the result of this game. In fact, they stand to gain more by resting their regulars now as the sides they’d face in the Super 12s will be much fresher. Thus, the Lankans might want to relax a little, which opens the opportunity for the Dutch to cause an upset. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Tip: Netherlands runs in over 1 – more than 5.5 @ 1.74

If the Netherlands are to win or even put up a fight, their top order, including Max O’Dowd and Stephan Myburgh will have to play out of their skin. Their push has to come from up top. Therefore, we expect a decent number of runs in their opening over. The 5.5-run spread at odds of 1.74 with Dafabet seems tempting. Pound it if you want to.


Sri Lanka and the Netherlands last met in this format way back in 2014. The Lankans triumphed by nine wickets then. Is it time for the scores to be settled? We’d find out tomorrow.
