After a fantastic start to the Road Safety World Series T20, Sri Lanka Legends will now lock horns with Bangladesh Legends in Raipur on Wednesday.
Tillakaratne Dilshan has been in scintillating form for the Sri Lanka Legends and has been leading the side from the front. The all-rounder has already scored 138 runs in the tournament and also has 5 wickets to his name. The 44-year-old has certainly showed no signs of ageing and is looking younger and fitter than ever before. The Sri Lankan side also has one of the best bowling line-ups in the tournament in the form of Nuwan Kulasekara, Rangana Herath and Ajantha Mendis. They bundled out South African Legends at a paltry score of 89 and will be raring with confidence coming into this contest.
On the other hand, Bangladesh Legends have had a really tough time in the tournament so far. Batting first, they have managed to register modest scores of 109 and 113 in the two matches. Although skipper Mohammad Rafique bowled an impressive spell (2/31) against England Legends, other bowlers have not yet found their rhythm. A defeat in this match will certainly dent Bangladesh’s hopes of qualifying for the semifinals in the tournament.
