Pitch Report:

slvsban pitch report


Sri Lanka had a disappointing performance in their T20 World Cup 2024 opener against South Africa. For the Lankans, their batting had a disappointing outing and has been a massive weakness ahead of the tournament. On the bowling front, the fast-bowling trio of Dilshan Madhushanaka, Matheesha Pathirana and Nuwan Thushara could be lethal against Bangladesh while being supported by a solid spin attack.

On the other hand, Bangladesh hasn’t been in the best form ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024. Before this global tournament, the Bangla Tigers lost to the USA in a three-game series where their batting had a dismal effort. Similarly, in the warm-up game against India, the batting failed to find consistency. Talking about their bowling, Bangladesh have a solid spin attack but their pace battery may seem lacking with injuries to crucial players.
