SL vs UAE Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match
Pathum Nissanka struggled in the first match against Namibia, but the talented batter should perform well in the second one. He can help his side post a big total by playing throughout the 20 overs. Probable best bowler of the match
In the first game, ace spinner Wanindu Hasaranga bowled a crucial spell and took some important wickets. Hopefully Hasaranga can continue his good form with the ball and grab a few more wickets for his side.
