I truly assume Bangladesh will begin this match as favourites as a result of they’re a much-improved facet in comparison with 5 years in the past when you be aware of latest performances within the Asia Cup and the way in which they tackled Sri Lanka.
Even in that match in opposition to England, they weren’t overawed. Shakib Al Hasan scored 100 and at no level did it really feel that Bangladesh was completely outplayed. Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar are offering a superb begin and after that, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah are consolidating the center order.
Within the decrease order, they’ve good hitters like Mashrafe Mortaza and Mohammad Saifuddin. If Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mosaddek Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman and Mashrafe Mortaza bowl properly, then Bangladesh can defeat Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka has Dimuth Karunaratne and Lahiru Thirimanne however Angelo Mathews and Thisara Perera are out of shape. This isn’t the Sri Lanka of Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara.
Lasith Malinga is on the fag finish of his profession. They’ve Nuwan Pradeep and Suranga Lakmal of their bowling unit. However they don’t have any awe-inspiring bowler of their squad. So, in my ebook, Bangladesh undoubtedly begins as favourites and may upset Sri Lanka. However in that case, I received’t name it an upset.
