BAN vs SL 1st ODI Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI & Top Picks, Sri Lanka tour of Bangladesh, 2021

BAN vs SL Dream11 Prediction: 1st ODI

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will play against each other in the 1st ODI at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. We will cover BAN vs SL 1st ODI Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.


Bangladesh had to face disappointment in their last ODI series as they were white-washed 3-0 by New Zealand in New Zealand, but their performance at home is entirely different as they defeated West Indies 3-0 earlier this year. They have a solid team this time, and they can put up an excellent performance in this series.

One of the most experienced players and the skipper Tamim Iqbal will open the innings for the team along with Liton Das, who is also an excellent opener and has been performing well over the past few years. At No.3, Shakib-Al-Hasan will replace Soumya Sarker and will play a crucial role with the bat

In the middle-order, the senior players Shakib-Al-Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim will play a crucial role as they might also need to play the role of a finisher. The all-rounders Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan, Afif Hossain will form the lower order of the team.

The team’s pace attack will be handled by Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, and Mohammad Saifuddin. Mehidy Hasan, Mahmudullah, and Shakib will mostly handle the spin department of the team. They appear to be a better side than the SL team and have a perfect chance of winning all the matches in the series.

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka also did not have a good time in their last ODI series as they also lost to West Indies by 3-0 and have been struggling very much in the ODI format to win the matches. They have rested their senior players in this series, and it would be interesting to see how the young players will perform.

Kusal Perera has been made the Captain of the team, and he is also the wicketkeeper of the team. He opens the innings with Dhanushka Gunthalika, and they both form a perfect opening pair and are expected to provide a good start. Pathum Nissanka is likely to bat at No.3 and is a decent striker of the ball.

Kusal Mendis, Dasun Shanaka and Dananjaya de Silva will play a major role in the middle-order. The lower middle-order will be handled by Isuru Udana, Wanindu Hasaranga and Akila Dananjaya.

The bowlers are relatively inexperienced, and the pace department will be lead by Isuru Udana and followed by Dushmantha Chameera, Asitha Fernando, and Lakshan Sandakan. Akila Dananjaya and Hasaranga will be the key spinners of the team.

The team lacks a bit of experience, and it would be interesting to see how they would perform against a stronger team like Bangladesh.
