Sri Lanka will take on against Bangladesh in the Group D match of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas. In their first match, Sri Lanka suffered a heavy defeat against South Africa, which they must put behind, to give themselves the best chance to get back on track. On the other side, Bangladesh will be opening their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign with this match, and a good start will put them in great stead for the remainder of the tournament.

Pitch Report

The pitches at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas have produced contrasting games in the early stages of a T20 World Cup, a high-scoring extravaganza, followed by a low-scoring thriller. The average first score at this venue in T20I cricket is 150 after a couple of matches, which is something Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have to get up to, at the very least, to compete well in their upcoming contest.

Team Analysis

Sri Lanka

The batting lineup of Sri Lanka fell away against a rampant pace attack of South Africa on a spicy pitch, getting bundled out for just 77 runs in the T20 World Cup 2024 opener. The bowlers for Sri Lanka did trouble the opposition batting lineup in their defence of the low score, with the likes of Nuwan Thushara, Matheesha Pathirana, Dasun Shanaka, and the captain Wanindu Hasaranga delivering good spells, but it didn’t prove to be enough.

Bangladesh haven’t had the best of times in the build-up to the T20 World Cup 2024, losing to the USA in a bilateral T20I series, becoming the first full-time team to do so. With that, it will be vital for the senior players, including the captain Najmul Hossain Shanto, Litton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah Riyad, and Mustafizur Rahman, to step up for Bangladesh, to give them any realistic chance of making the Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup.
