When and where:
Sri Lanka A will take on Ireland A in the second game of the ODI series, on (January 21) at Hambantota, Sooriyawewa, Sri Lanka.
The hosts are looking to get another series win under their belt against these opponents. The team showcased a complete performance in the last game where they scored 365 runs. The batsman did their job by posting a mammoth total. These players are looking to get a place in the first team of the national side, and such displays of firepower will only help their case. All in all, nothing should be changed from the combination that won the last game, and they will be looking to ride high on this momentum.
Meanwhile, Ireland A fell short by a massive discrepancy. The bowlers didn’t put a fight at all, and they allowed the Sri Lanka A batsman to dictate the flow. Not only was this disastrous, but also terrible for the morale of the entire team. They did try to consistently make their way to the total but fell short when their best two batsman got out. The management needs to look at themselves long and hard, or else the same treatment will be dished out in this fixture.
The match will begin at 10:00 AM IST.
