Hosts Bangladesh will take on Sri Lanka in the second Test of their two-match series starting on March 30 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. With series on the line for Najmul Hossain Shanto and co., the match also constitutes a part of the ongoing 2023-25 WTC cycle.

BAN vs SL 2024, 2nd Test: Team Previews


Bangladesh’s dismal batting performance in Sylhet in the series-opener led to their 328-run defeat to Sri Lanka. Under Najmul Hossain Shanto, the hosts managed to list scores of just 188 and 182 across both innings, with Mominul Haque accounting for nearly half of their second-innings total through his unbeaten 87.

Bowlers also failed to make much impact in the match, with Sri Lankan middle-order flourishing with the bat to mount challenging totals on a spin-friendly wicket. With series on the line, Bangladesh will surely be boosted by the return of ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who was roped into the squad in place of Towhid Hridoy.

Bangladesh, currently placed in the bottom half of the 2023-25 WTC points table, need to defeat Sri Lanka in the impending series-decider to climb up the ladder.

Sri Lanka

Despite registering an emphatic victory in the first Test, Sri Lanka’s top-order form continues to remain a primary area of concern for the visitors. In the first innings at Sylhet, Sri Lanka slipped to 57-5 before imperial centuries from captain Dhananjaya de Silva and Kamindu Mendis lifted the team. Sri Lanka also crumbled to 64-4, and to 126-6, before a lower-order resistance took them past the 400-run mark in the second innings.

Moreover, fast bowler Kasun Rajitha, who picked up eight wickets in the match, has been ruled out of the decider owing to an injury. A win over Bangladesh in the second Test will not only help them seal the series 2-0, but will also give them a much-needed rankings boost on the WTC points table.
