Sri Lanka are one of the favourites in the early stages of the competition since it is played in the sub-continent where they play their best cricket. Sri Lanka have a tough challenge against South Africa but still should make the Super 8’s with the other match being played against Zimbabwe. Lasith Malinga will be key for the home side as they face some tough opponents they will need Malinga to be at his best to take the early and important wickets of the good sides.

Sri Lanka v Zimbabwe – September 18
Sri Lanka v South Africa – September 22
Sri Lanka are a strong chance of winning this years T20 World Cup but I feel they will get knocked out in the semi-final stage of the tournament.
