Sri Lanka started their ICC T20 World Cup 2021 campaign on an auspicious note defeating Namibia by 7 wickets in their opening Group A match yesterday, but not before the early shock of losing 3 wickets for 26 runs before Bhanuka Rajapaksa settled the issue smashing an unbeaten 42 off 27 deliveries with Avishka Fernando on the other end striking 30 off 28 as Sri Lanka reached 100 for 3 off 13.3 overs chasing Namibia’s 96 at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The left handed Rajapaksa’s cameo was timely hitting 2 sixes and 4 boundaries while the right handed Fernando paced out his innings reeling off 2 sixes.
