SL-U19 Vs JPN-U19 Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Sri Lanka for once make an advent into an encounter as outright favourites.
For both Asian countries Sri Lanka and Japan, the ongoing edition of the ICC U19 ODI Cricket World Cup has been a drab and dreary affair. Both have failed to register a single win in between them in the four encounters they have contested, results which see them rightfully sitting in the trenches of Group A.
While much was not envisaged from Japan given the side’s clear lack of quality as compared to their competitors, Sri Lanka have clearly massively underachieved. It’s been a tiresome campaign for them, one which saw them trounced by 90 run by the Indians before eventually going onto lose by 3 wickets to New Zealand.
And there two straight defeats surprisingly see them slumped even below the Japanese in the group standings. With their contest against New Zealand truncated midway owing to inclement weather, Japan who were flayed by 10 wickets by India are currently in third position with the one point advantage over Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka have failed to register a single win till now but come today, they should finally manage to get the result they’ve been made to yearn for. Japan have offered extremely little with the clear difference between them and their opponents being a telling one in the tournamnet.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Rain continues to be an ever looming threat on this surface with a heavy cloud cover ominously looming over the surface today as well. It’s something which will lead the team winning the toss choosing to come out and chase today on a surface where the new ball will frisk around owing to rain in the air with chasing set to be relatively easy once the surface settles in.

SL-U19 Vs JPN-U19 Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
He scored 21 runs the last time around for his side to see us go in with Sri Lanka’s wicket-keeper, Kamil Mishra for this encounter.
SL-U19 Vs JPN-U19 Dream11 Batsmen
He’s paired up with his counterpart Navod Paranavithana who scored 23 runs in the same encounter with us opting for number three bat Ravindu Rasantha as well from the side after he got 29 runs against New Zealand. Elsewhere, from Japan we are getting in their opener Shu Noguchi after he managed to show reslliance and valour to stick it around for 17 balls against the Indians.
SL-U19 Vs JPN-U19 Dream11 All-Rounders
With two wickets against New Zealand, we begin this docket of our Dream 11 side with the selection of Sudeera Thilakaratne from Sri Lanka. Another reason which played a pivotal role in moving for him was his relatively escalated batting position along with him being assured of the 10 overs with the ball as well, something which sees us bring in Kavindu Nadeeshan from the side as well.
Despite scoring 46 runs for his side against the Black caps, we’ll still be leaving out Dinusha from the side owing to him coming way too down the batting order and not getting any overs with the ball. Elsewhere, all-rounders made for safe picks from Japan owing to their capability to contribute in both the ambits of the game, a discourse which sees us rope in the electric duo of Max Clements and Ashley Thurgate from the side.
SL-U19 Vs JPN-U19 Dream11 Bowling Order
After being dismissed for a mere41 runs by India, one thing which Japan emoted to was they have clear and blatant issues in their batting contingent. They look unlikely to paper over them today either, seeing us earmark Sri Lanka’s frontline bowlers for this one.
Both Ashian Daniel and Dilshan Madushanka will be taking up the new ball for the side, overs in which they can end up snaring a slew of wickets. Elsewhere, Yugandhar Retharekar from Japan will be bringing an end to our set of picks from Japan for this one.
SL-U19 Vs JPN-U19 Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
We are choosing Mishara as our side’s captain while Daniel will come in as the vice-captain.
