SL vs IRE Key Players
Wanindu Hasaranga is the superstar of the Sri Lankan Cricket team right now. For them to make any sort of impact in the World Cup, his leg-spin will have to produce a huge contribution. He is already a contender for most wickets in the tournament, but it will be interesting to see how he reacts to Australian pitches, and if he can live up to the expectations.
Over the last year, Josh Little has impressed a lot. He has pace, he is young and he is already proving that he can lead an attack. A good spell from him up front will be key for Ireland as they will rely on him for consistent breakthroughs throughout the innings.
