Sri Lanka will face South Africa in their first match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 on June 3.

Sri Lanka have been an underwhelming side for a long time since their big names retired. They will enter the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in the hope of doing well and achieving some success. They are placed in Group D of the competition.

Wanindu Hasaranga will lead the team, and they will face South Africa in their opening match on June 3 in New York. The Sri Lankan squad has some exciting players who have been playing international cricket for some time now.

In this article, we will talk about the five Sri Lankan players whom you should pick in your Dream11 team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Here are the five Sri Lankan stars you must have in your Dream11 teams during the ICC T20 World Cup 2024:

5. Angelo Mathews

Angelo Mathews was part of Sri Lanka’s 2014 T20 World Cup-winning team and is the most experienced player in the current team. In the last couple of years, he has regained his spot in the national team across formats after doing well in both departments. He is a consistent batter and he also gives his side a couple of decent overs of medium pace. It makes him the right choice for the Dream11 team, as he can collect points in both departments.

4. Matheesha Pathirana

Matheesha Pathirana was one of the most popular players on fantasy cricket platforms in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. It is because of his ability to pick up wickets consistently. Hence, he is a must-have bowler in your fantasy cricket line-up from the Sri Lankan team. Pathirana bowls at least a couple of overs in the death overs, where the batters go after the bowler and tend to lose their wickets. If he can give you 2-3 wickets, you will collect a handsome amount of points on fantasy cricket platforms.

3. Kusal Mendis

Kusal Mendis is vice-captain of the Sri Lankan side and is a key player in their batting unit. He is one of their batters who has shown consistency with the bat. He is a top-order batter who also keeps wickets. Mendis is a good player of spin, which will come in handy on the pitches in the Caribbean Islands and US. Furthermore, he will be keeping the wickets; every catch, stumping or run-out will collect points on fantasy cricket platforms.

2. Charith Asalanka

Charith Asalanka has arguably been the best batter for Sri Lanka in white-ball cricket in the last couple of years. The left-hander is an aggressive middle-order batter. He also bowls off-spin, which will be very effective on the slow pitches at the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. You will also find him fielding at important catching positions in the deep. Hence, he is a pretty important player while making Dream11 teams.

1. Wanindu Hasaranga

No. 2 ranked T20I bowler and No. 1 ranked T20I all-rounder, Wanindu Hasaranga has been given the responsibility to lead Sri Lanka at the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. It is because he is among the best T20 cricketers in modern-day cricket. His four overs are often decisive and his batting in the middle-order is vital for Sri Lanka. Hence, Hasaranga will be an excellent captain of your Dream11 team.
