Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka has been performing exceptionally well. Their batting, bowling and fielding have been commendable. They went from being underdogs in the T20 Asia Cup Tournament and won the tournament. They are on a winning streak and have beaten Namibia in previous matches between the 2 teams. They will be looking to play with that advantage and dominate the Namibians during this match. 


Namibia had a wonderful ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier League. They were topping the league table. Prior to that they even beat Zimbabwe in a tournament. During the warm-up games, they registered a convincing win against Ireland and they have been demanding respect. They can surprise the Lankans by putting up a hard fight to win the first game. If they manage to bat first a total of 160+ would be a defendable target but if they bowl first they should try to minimize
