Match 6 of the 2022 Twenty20 World Cup will feature Sri Lanka versus the United Arab Emirates. Both squads are hungry to get back into the tournament after suffering defeat in their opening matchup.
The UAE bowlers tried their hardest to win the game for their team. Still, the Netherlands batter held their cool and stole the victory in the final, even if the Asia Cup champions fell comfortably to Namibia as reported by The UK Time
There will be 8 teams competing in the qualifiers as a whole. The eight teams are Sri Lanka, Namibia, the United Arab Emirates, the Netherlands, the West Indies, Zimbabwe, and Ireland. During the qualifying phase for the ICC Twenty20 World Cup 2022, 12 games will be played. Each team in Group A will play one game against the other teams in that group. In the same way, all of the teams in Group B will play against each other in a single match.
After capturing the Asia Cup recently, Sri Lanka proceeded into the qualifying rounds. They won the championship by beating Pakistan. As a bonus, they could triumph over India, who had been considered the favorites to win the tournament. But after losing to Namibia, they find themselves in a difficult position. Captain Dasun Shanaka cited the loss of wickets during the powerplay as a factor in their loss.
