BAN vs SL: Team Previews


Led by Najmul Hossain Shanto, Bangladesh's bowling department is their biggest strength. Besides the experienced Shakib Al Hasan, the Tigers have the wily duo of Mahedi Hasan and Tanvir Islam, who can bamboozle the opposition in the middle overs. 

Their seam bowling department is even more formidable, with the likes of Shoriful, Taskin and Mustafizur being capable of destroying the opponent batting order. 

Meanwhile, their batting seems to be a concern for Bangladesh, with experienced players like Litton Das, Najmul Shanto, Soumya Sarkar and Shakib struggling with form. 

So, the onus will be on Towhid Hridoy, Tanzid Hasan and Mahmudullah to bat long and ensure a respectable score for the Tigers. 

Sri Lanka

On the other hand, Sri Lanka had a horrendous start to their T20 World Cup journey as South Africa crushed them by six wickets. 

Despite having flamboyant stroke players throughout their lineup, the Lankans managed only 77 runs, putting up one of the most shambolic batting efforts in their rich history. 

However, considering the pitch at the Grand Prairie Stadium has behaved much better than the one in New York, a better performance is expected from the Sri Lankan batters. 

The onus will be on Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Pathum Nissanka and Sadeera Samarawickrama to keep the scoreboard ticking, while the bowling unit led by skipper Wanindu Hasaranga would be keen to give Bangladesh a run for their money.

BAN vs SL: Grand Prairie Stadium Pitch Report

The surface at Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas will offer a hint of seam movement to the fast bowlers early on. However, as the moisture dries out, it will be a great batting track with even pace and bounce. The spinners might get some grip and turn, making things challenging for the batters in the middle overs. Considering the trend, the toss-winner might opt to field first.
