Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh 2nd T20I Match Prediction : Who Will Win The Match?

After a close encounter in the last match, the Sri Lankan team will be keen to seize the series in the 2nd and last t20I versus the Bangladesh.

The first match saw Bangladesh putting up a valiant effort by making 155 off their 20 overs. In reply, the Sri Lankan team got off to a flyer with 65 runs in 7 overs, at the stroke of which they lost their first wicket. However, Kusal Perera’s 77 off 53 proved to be a match-winning knock for the Lankans who won with ease with 6 wickets in hand and 7 balls to spare.

Tonight’s match will be played in Colombo and Sri Lankans should in all likelihood capture the match and with it the series.

Perera is the key

Kusal Perera will again be the key with the bat for the Lankans. It was his explosive hard-hitting at the top that gave Lankans a great start and not only that; but also pushed them beyond the victory line in the last match. Perera’s quick run making will help take some pressure off from the inexperienced middle order that includes Munaweera, Kapugedara, Gunaratne and Prasanna.

Malinga’s early inroads will dictate course of the match

The bowling will be spearheaded by the Lankan paceman in Lasith Malinga, 2nd highest wicket taker in t20I’s. Malinga looked in good shape and got early inroads for the Lankans in the last match. His famous in swinging brutal yorker was there and this will make him a real challenge for the Bangladeshi’s in today’s match as well. Thisara Perera, Kulasekara & Sanjaya will add to the bowling strength.

Sri Lanka will score in excess of 150+ if they bat first.

 

Bangladesh

Bangladesh rely heavily on Iqbal

The Bangladeshi unit will hope for some resistance from their opener in Tamim Iqbal, who is extremely vital to get them off to a quick start. Sarkar and Rahman are ideal to anchor the innings but aren’t necessarily batsmen that can score at quick pace, for this they need Iqbal to fire some runs in the initial power play overs (first 6).

Mortaza’s good-bye to international T20I

Mortaza-retiers-cricket

This match marks the last for the Bangladeshi skipper in Mashrafe Mortaza, who is retiring from international t20’s post this t20 series. Mortaza’s captaincy has often led Bangladesh to key wins and it will be his captaincy that can turn around fortunes for them in tonight’s encounter.

Can Shakib and Rahman rise up to the occasion

Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahman will need to step up and take responsibility of playing out the middle overs at a flowing run-rate, should they get a chance to bat in middle overs. Shakib has added responsibility to deliver with the ball and should he grab a few early wickets in his spell, the Sri Lankans might well find themselves in trouble.

Mahmudullah, Mustafizur and Saifuddin are likely to stay in the side while Taskin Ahmed may be dropped in order for the Bangladeshi to play an additional spinner in Mehdi Hassan.
