Sri Lanka vs U.A.E T20 Asia Cup Highlights Today 25 Feb 2016

After the experience and also the experiment of Sri Lankan playing XI in India with three t20 cricket matches now SL should be satisfied with their team players and now Sri Lanka team players will be more confident with return of their captain Lasith Malinga the worlds most talented specialist and also no 1 of yorker bowling there is no doubt about him. Angelo Mathews, Rangana Herath and Nuwan Kulasekara are also included in the team and now Sri Lankan team is complete to chase anyone in T20 Asia Cup 2016.

United Arab Emirates have won the toss and decided to bowl first
Sri Lanka team lost many matches in their recent series against New Zealand and India but this time they have chance to rise again against United Arab Emirates In Asia Cup 2016 2nd Match at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur. Other side United Arab Emirates team showed much aggression and also beauty with constant three victories in qualifying round, If Sri Lanka team made any mistake then United Arab Emirates may not give them any chance to beat them. It will be very huge test for United Arab Emirates team playing against much dangerous and also well experienced team.

The big call for Sri Lanka is whether to play Herath ahead of their seam allrounders, given how Mirpur has been good for seam bowling on certain evenings. Sri Lanka could also be in a dilemma about Kulasekara, while Jayasuriya and Vandersay are handy spin options. UAE are unlikely to go with Zaheer Maqsood, Fahad Tariq and Farhan Ahmed unless there is an injury to one of the players who featured in the victory against Oman in their last qualifying match in Fatullah.

Pitch and weather report
Mirpur had a green top for the Bangladesh-India encounter but it is unlikely that a similar pitch will be greeting Sri Lanka and UAE. A surface devoid of grass and with slower speed can be expected. There is rain in the forecast but nothing that should threaten the game.
