BAN vs SL Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Injury Updates & Pitch Report For 1st T20I

Sri Lanka would be facing tough competition.


BAN vs SL will square off against each other in the 1st T20I of the Sri Lanka tour of Bangladesh at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet on March 4. Sri Lanka has done a great job so far in the last five matches of the format where they have won three of them. Bangladesh, on the other hand, has been decent as well with two wins and two losses in the last five games.
Bangladesh had squared off against New Zealand in their last match where New Zealand had won the toss and elected to bowl. On a low-scoring track, Bangladesh failed to put up a good show with the bat as they kept losing wickets and were bowled out for a petty total of 110. Chasing such a small total down, however, was not an easy job for the Kiwis as well. They struggled too as they kept losing wickets and were at the score of 95 after 14.4 overs when the rain arrived and they were eventually declared the winners of the game by 17 runs.
Sri Lanka had played against Afghanistan in their previous encounter where Afghanistan won the toss and elected to bat. It was a day dominated by the batters as the Afghan openers were brilliant right from the start. After continuous smashing of bowlers around, Afghanistan ended up with a total of 209 runs on the board. Sri Lanka did not back down from such a total and batted really well to put up a great fight. The match got extremely interesting towards the end as Sri Lanka very close but fell short of the target by just three runs.

Pitch Report

The track at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium is expected to be helpful to the batters as well as the bowlers in nature. Pacers can extract good help from the pitch initially with some seam and swing movement. It would be a good contest between the bat and the ball here. Teams prefer to bowl first here after winning the toss with the average first innings score being 130.

Captains: 8.5

Matheesha Pathirana SL | bowl

Pathirana is the newly found superstar of the format for Sri Lanka. Slingy action and on-point yorkers have made him a brilliant bowler and can be the leader you are looking for.

Matheesha Pathirana: 8.5
