Sri Lanka will take on the Netherlands in a must-win clash to keep their T20 World Cup campaign alive. The Island Nation has received a setback as their express pacer Dushmantha Chameera has been ruled out of the tournament. 

Meanwhile, the Dutch side is having an excellent tournament so far. They have already beaten UAE and Namibia but will face a tougher challenge in front of the former T20 champions. To note, the Netherlands have never defeated Sri Lanka in the past.
