Ireland vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI Match Prediction who will win
Sri Lanka has won first ODI from Ireland on 16th June . Sri Lanka played its first innings and made 303 runs in 50 overs on the loss of 7 wickets. The batting side of Sri Lanka was outstanding. LD Chandimal made 100 runs in 107 balls. He hit 6 fours in his century. He remained not out even after completing his century. His strike rate was 93.45. BKG Mendis made 51 runs on 56 balls. AD Mathews scored 49 runs in 53 balls hitting four 4s and 2 sixes. MD Shanaka made 42 runs. So the batting line up performed very well. Bowling side of Sri Lanka was also awesome. MD Shanaka took 5 wickets and gave only 43 runs in 9 overs. AD Mathews took 2 wickets. It shows the Sri Lankan team has played well against Ireland and it will also win the next match. The one reason behind is Ireland is a new team as compare to Sri Lanka so it is very difficult for them to compete such an old and brilliant team.
Ireland is hosting its first International series in last 2 years. Sri Lankan team is on the tour of Ireland. In 2014 another team visited Ireland which played Two times series at Dublin. Since then Ireland team has improved a lot and they are not minnows more. Now they can defeat any team regardless of the conditions. In current Ireland team 6 players are playing from the previous team of 2014 and others are new inducted players. The main leading batsman and wicket keeper Niall O’ Brien is not playing this series because he was injured in a county match of Leicestershire last week. It is expected that Wicket keeper will not join the team for the next 6 weeks and John Anderson will fill his place as a Wicket Keeper in this series. Beside this mishap Ireland team is all right. They have lost their first match against Sri Lanka and now looking for a victory to balance the series. It is very hard for them to beat such an experienced team but it is not impossible yet. They are working hard and doing more practice so that they can perform well in the upcoming match.
