ICC Men’s T20 World Cup: Lanka’s Floridian joust

22 May 2024


Sri Lanka, who are in the US for the forthcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will fine tune their preparations for the mega event, with two warm-up games against Netherlands and Ireland respectively, at Broward County Stadium, Broward County in Florida next week.

Their first warm-up fixture will be against the Dutch on 28 May, while they will then confront the Irish, in their last preparatory game 72-hours later.

According to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) sources, both warm-up games will be ideal for Wanidu Hasaranga’s team to adjust to the conditions in the United States and to gauge the state of pitches, being used for the month-long showpiece.

Ironically, Sri Lanka also will take on the same Netherlands outfit, in their final group match which has been scheduled for St. Lucia in the West Indies-the other co-host of the event, on 17 June.

An interesting feature of the warm-up games will be that it will be played sans official T20 status being accorded by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

All teams who have been provided with warm-up games will also have the opportunity to field all members of their 15-member squads, as approved by the game’s world ruling body.
