Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh Preview
Sri Lanka roared loudly with their 5-wkt win over the tournament favorites India with Kusal Perera tonking the Indian bowlers all across the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Bangladesh impressed with their seam bowling display against India and they would need to be on similar levels if they are to curtail the Sri Lankan top-order.
Bangladesh, however, will need to sure up their top-order batting with Tamim Iqbal and the out of form Soumya Sarkar looking to give The Tigers a solid start in the powerplay overs. Following Tamim and Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim is a sort of batsman who will need to step up and bat deep into the innings something Shakib Al-Hasan is known to do for Bangladesh.
However, in Shakib’s absence, Mushfiqur will need to carry the innings and hope that Mahmudullah and Sabbir Rehman can strike big runs at the end of their innings. Having said that, Sri Lanka middle order is also a solid unit with Upul Tharanga batting in at number four with Dinesh Chandimal and Thisara Perera acting as the finishers.
Colombo’s Premadasa Stadium has always been conducive to spin bowling and the likes of Mehedi Hasan and Akila Dananjaya will be a handful for their opposing batsmen. We can expect another low scoring game where a total of 160 could turn out to be a match-winning one if the fielding captain manages to control the innings in middle overs.
