Sri Lanka vs Ireland: 1st Test – Prediction

Sri Lanka will be coming home after a disappointing end to the New Zealand tour to host Ireland in a two-match Test series. Sri Lankan cricket is witnessing a significant dip in their quality of cricket even after having some quality players in the team. Ireland also witnessed a loss in their last fixture against Bangladesh in the Test format.

Sri Lanka fought closely in the Test format against New Zealand at a foreign pitch; hence, they are expected to perform at their best against Ireland at home. Top online bookmakers have fancy odds on this series on their platform.

Ireland carries very less experience when it comes to the red-ball format of cricket. Some new names will be travelling with the senior team this year for the Sri Lanka tour.

Sri Lanka will win the match.

The betting tip is...

Andrew Balbirnie to score less than 49.5 in first innings

Sri Lanka Team News

Sri Lankan cricket has come out stronger when it comes to the T20 format of the game but they have lacked the passion for the Test format and ODIs. They did give a tough fight to New Zealand during their last tour to Kiwi pitches. Overall, the Lankan squad will be expected to do a better job against Ireland. They will be the 5th nation to face Ireland in the Test format since 2018.

Ireland Team News

Ireland cricket is known to give upsets in international cricket. They have, in the past, performed exceptionally well but only in the limited-over format of the game. However, since their debut in the Test format in 2018, it seems like the red-ball format is not their forte. The two-match test series is an opportunity for visitors to change their perception of international cricket.
