Key Players:


Bangladesh are presently sixth in the points table of the Super League table and have to play some good cricket to qualify for next year’s ODI World Cup. Led by Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh would be overjoyed because Shakib-Al-Hasan is back in the squad. The star all-rounder will be vital to the chances of the “Tigers”. The bowling department will also be bolstered with the addition of Mustafizur Rahman in the line-up.

Sri Lanka will be led by a new captain in the form of Kusal Perera. The southpaw will have a task as the team needs to get out of the 12th position from the Super League table. Star all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga will be a force to reckon with in the team and if he can get going, then Sri Lanka will have a good outing.
