Prior to this tournament, Sri Lankan team has lost two T20 series in a row – against New Zealand and India. However, the team is capable of doing anything unpredictable at anytime. In their first twenty20 match, they will face UAE which is a weaker team in its comparison. So, they should be able to win easily.

On cards, SL need not to worry anything. However, if they succeed to win by a very big margin then, it will send a red signal to all other teams participating in the competition. (watch: Bangladesh vs UAE.)
SL has good number of quality batsmen for this Asia Cup. Some are experienced while others are young players. The bowling department will be under the leadership of Lasith Malinga. He will play international matches after a long time as he suffered from knee injury while playing against West Indies last year.
Last time, when Lanka lost to India, their star players weren’t a part of the playing eleven. But the likes of Malings, Kulasekara, Mathews, and Herath are a part of the team. Thus, they will be able to put forward a competitive match against the opponents.Sri Lanka vs UAE Live Streaming
Apart from the predictions, the SL side should focus on the series match by match starting with UAE. The Islanders will get to start the Asia Cup with a win unless the UAE performs some good cricket and it itself presents poor cricket.
Speaking of the batting lineup of Sri Lanka then, it already has quality batsmen such as Tillakaratne Dilshan. He will take care at the top order level. At middle order, the team has Kapugedera and Chandimal as well likes of Perera and Shanaka as the tail enders.
Mathews is the key batsman for the team. If the situation demans, he can prove to be a great assest as visible from his recent performances. He has a solid career strike rate of 144.66. He will have to play an important role in this Asia Cup and upcoming T20 World Cup next month.Sri Lanka vs UAE Live Streaming
Apart from batsmen, the team has very good bowlers such as Malinga and Kulasakera who will lead the pace attack. Herath can deliver good slow delieveries enough to pose a threat to the UAE batsmen.
On the other hand, UAE is the underdog in the series. However, they have already shown their potential and capablities by scoring a big total of 176 runs and 172 runs against Afghanistan and Oman respectively. Moreover, they chased down 146 runs against Hong Kong.
During qualifiers, the UAE batsmen helped the team to win. So, the team will largely depend on the batting lineup today too. In order to win against SL, UAE will have to present a team effort. Anyway, UAE should play fearlessly as they don’t have anything to lose.
