The match that is part of the ICC Under 19 World Cup Warm-up Matches 2022 between Ireland U19 and Sri Lanka U19 will take place in Providence Stadium in Guyana.
Ireland cruised to a victory over Scotland in the one-sided final of the Europe qualifying tournament last September, thereby securing their spot in the upcoming edition of the ICC Under 19 Men’s Cricket World Cup.
The slow left-arm spinner from Lisburn, Matthew Humphreys, was the standout performer in La Manga, where he took 5-25, and he will be eager to carry that form into the big event.
Over the New Year’s holiday, Ireland competed against Zimbabwe in Barbados. Despite the fact that they were defeated in the series 3-1, a victory by 117 runs in the final game demonstrated what the team, which is captained by Tim Tector, is capable of when they are on their game.
Ireland’s best performance to date in their eight attempts is a tenth place finish in 2010, but they won three of their six matches the last time they qualified in 2018, including a memorable victory over Afghanistan by four runs. Ireland has competed in eight World Cups to date.
Dunith Wellalage will captain a formidable Sri Lankan squad that will compete in the Under-19 World Cup.
Recently, Pawan Pathiraja competed in the Under-19 Asia Cup and did very well. Because of his performance, the team was able to advance all the way to the championship round of the competition.
Raveen De Silva, who can play multiple positions, and Dunith Wellalage, who is their captain, are their primary bowlers.
Sri Lanka – Dunith Wellalage (c), Shevon Daniel, Anjala Bandara, Pawan Pathiraja, Sadisha Rajapaksa, Wanuja Sahan Kumara, Raveen De Silva, Ranuda Somarathne, Malsha Tharupathi, Traveen Mathew, Yasiru Rodrigo, Matheesha Pathirana, Chamidu Wickramasinghe, Vinuja Ranpul, Sakuna Liyanage, Abhisheak Liyanaarachchi, Sadeesh Jayawardena.
