Sri Lanka Chance of Winning the ICC Champion Trophy

Sri Lanka vs Pakistan  Mon 12 June, Cardiff Wales Stadium, Cardiff, Wales (Sri Lanka has had more runs on the board than Pakistan who has bowled better than batted so Sri lanka will have a better chance of win)

England vs Australia  Sat 10 June, Edgbaston, Birmingham, England (England Win)
New Zealand vs Bangladesh Fri 9 June, Cardiff Wales Stadium, Cardiff, Wales (Bangladesh Win)

India v South Africa  Sun 11 June, The Oval, London, England (India win)
My Prediction 
England vs  Sri Lanka/Pakistan Wed 14 June, Cardiff Wales Stadium, Cardiff, Wales (Sri Lanka Will need to bowl really well but has a decent chance of winning)
Bangladesh vs India  Thu 15 June, Edgbaston, Birmingham, England ( India has an edge over Bangladesh)


England vs India Sun 18 June, The Oval, London, England (Mostly Likely India and England will have a good contest)( England Will be Slightly Favorites)
If Sri Lanka wants to get into the finals-

  • They need to be constant of what they did against India with the bat
  • Lasith Malinga needs to be less Expensive in the Death Overs and get more wickets instead.
  • Use Asela Gunarathne and Danushka Gunathilaka to share the 5th bowlers overs wisely
  • Niroshan Dickwella needs to start the innings off to a blast
  • Danushka Gunathilaka and  Kusal Mendis need to layout the platform for the innings
  • Kusal Janith Perera hopefully will be fit or get a suitable replacement like Sadeera Samarawickrama
  • Bring in Lakshan Sandakan into the team for the right matches since he is an X-Factor and rare kind of Spin Bowling and since he is a Wirst Spinner he can turn the ball both ways even if it is a green and grass pitch which is more suit for fast bowls he can suprise the Batsmans.(Wicket Taking Bowler)
  • Dinesh Chandimal needs to be used properly as Sri Lanka is not going to drop him since he is one of the most Experience players in the team so if Chandimal can be more aggressive with his batting it will help the team alot.

A good problem for the Sri Lanka team mangement will arise if Sri lanka do quailfy for the Semi-Finals in which who will be dropped for the return of  Upul Tharanga.
