BAN vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview: World Cup 2019 | Nuwan Pradeep ruled out
Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will face-off in the 16th match of World Cup’19 at County Ground in Bristol. We will provide BAN vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the match.
Team Bangladesh is eighth on the points table with one win and two losses. However, These numbers don’t give justice to their performance yet in World Cup 2019 as they have put a solid show against South Africa and New Zealand. They were outplayed by hosts England in the last encounter but will come to all guns blazing tomorrow to defeat underperforming Sri Lanka team.
In the last encounter, they lost to England by 106 runs. Bowling first, Bangladesh bowlers failed to restrict England resulting in a target of 387. Mehidy Hasan and M Saifuddin took two scalps each for their team. In the chase, Openers Tamim and Soumya got out quickly but Shakib Al Hasan continued his brilliant form scoring stroke-filled knock of 121 runs and was supported by Mushfiqur Rahim but could only score 280 runs.
Sri Lanka has failed to make a mark in WC’19 despite victory in their last completed encounter against Afghanistan. Their last encounter against Pakistan was abandoned due to rain. Except for Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera, No other batsmen have shown any spark yet. Also with injury to Nuwan Pradeep, Their bowling department has got weaker. They will expect a responsible performance from their batsmen in order to outplay spirited Bangladesh team.
In their last completed match, They defeated Afghanistan by 34 runs under DLS in a 41-over match. Batting first, Kusal Perera single-handedly took his team to a respectable total scoring attacking knock of 78 runs. Also, Karunaratne and Thirimanne got starts but could not convert into a good knock. Defending the target, Nuwan Pradeep bowled lethal opening spell taking four wicket-haul to destroy Afghan batting line-up. In addition, Lasith Malinga was also at his former best in death overs to take three scalps and ensure a 34 run win for his team.
A good contest can be expected between both teams.
