Cricket Free Tips | Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, 2021: 2nd ODI

After a disastrous tour of New Zealand, Bangladesh has made a strong start in the One-Day International series against Sri Lanka. Bangladesh batted first and crossed the 250-run mark on a difficult-to-bat-on track at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Sri Lanka only managed 224 points in the run chase. The only Sri Lankan batsman who did well in that match was Wanindu Hasaranga. Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman were the stars for Bangladesh with the ball.

 

Weather

This match is expected to be rained out, with some showers expected later in the evening. With an average temperature of about 33 degrees Celsius, it should stay hot and humid. Because of the possibility of rain, captains who win the toss should choose to bowl first.

 

Pitch

The pitch has something for bowlers. While the pacers will profit from the early swing, the batsmen will relish their chances in the powerplay. The pitch should slow down as the game progresses, allowing the spinners to join the fray. The pacers will try to vary their pace, as Mustafizur Rahman and Isuru Udana did so brilliantly in the first ODI. After winning the toss, both teams will look to bat, with a par score of 250 expected at the venue.
