The reigning Asian champions will begin their T20 World Cup 2022 journey on October 16, 2022, against Namibia at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. Dasun Shanka and his company will have to take the challenge and adapt themselves quickly in the Australian conditions for a fruitful outcome in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Interestingly, even after winning the Asia Cup 2022, Sri Lanka haven’t qualified as one of the top eight teams in the competition. Thus, they’ll play in the First Round and compete against Namibia, UAE and the Netherlands in the hope of qualifying for the Super 12 stage of the competition.

However, there are problems in the team that need to be addressed. The strike rate of certain players are definitely one of them. The pitches in Australia will not favour the spinners much and that can be an issue for the team as they rely heavily on their spin attack. Everyone in the team is well aware of their roles and if manage to stick to them, the team has a good chance of performing well in the mega tournament. 

Kusal Mendis and Bhanuka Rajapaksa are going to be key players for the Lankan team in the tournament. Both cricketers can play aggressive cricket and found success in the recently concluded Asia Cup.

The team will be playing a couple of warm-up games against Zimbabwe and Ireland and it will be a great opportunity for them to understand the conditions and play their natural game. Wanindu Hasaranga is another such player who’ll be very important for the team in the tourney. He is not only deceptive as a leg-spinner but also has the ability to tonk the ball many a miles if needed.
