Srilanka will miss service of Lasith Malinga who has played last ODI match of his career in first ODI that they won quite comfortably with Kusal Perera’s ton and bowlers’ masterclass.
Bangladesh’s batting look half of their World Cup’s batting as they miss Shakib Al Hasan who was the reason of their successful batting of World Cup, although it’s not the end as they also will miss they regular skipper as Mashrafe Murtaza gets rest with injury.
Srilanka wants to win the series before the last the match although Bangladesh won’t be easy to do the job as they will also try their best to level the series to await for the result in final match.
Weather and Pitch reports
Although pitch still will offer huge score but there are huge chances of some rain as well, and it is also easy to predict that dew will also play its part in second innings but still chasing won’t be that much easy if team manage to get 300 runs. Winning the toss, chosing bat first will not be bad call.
Srilanka’s lineup looks comfortable and they finished their last match on winning note so they won’t change any player as Lasith Malinga won’t be available so they will have to look after one change.
There is no doubt between Taskin Ahmed and Rubel Hossain to pick one of them, although they can also pick one from Mithun and Anamul if needed, they are only possible changes look to be.
Srilanka wins the toss, will bat first and will make around 300 and will come out as winner.
Bangladesh wins the toss, will bat first and will make around 270 and will lose the match.
Predictions for Srilanka to win the match and so the series.
