The Dasun Sanaka-led side were expected to make it to the next stage without any fuss. But the unexpected loss derailed their campaign. However, the odds are still in their favor as a win against the Netherlands will take the Sri Lankan Lions to the Super 12 stage, owing to their highest net run rate. If they fail to do so, their qualification will depend on the match between UAE and Namibia. Sri Lanka will not advance if the remaining two Group A matches are not completed.
Although the Netherlands made it two wins out of two with the victory over Namibia and are currently top of Group B, they will need to secure a win against the Asian giants if they are to seal their place at the next stage. A defeat would leave the Dutch bank again on the UAE, who would then have to beat Namibia to help the Netherlands qualify.
