Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Match Prediction Tips | BAN vs SL Who will win Today Match

Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai, September 15 at 05:00 PM IST

The 14th edition of Asia Cup will commence from September 15 with the opening game to be played between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The two teams are pipped as among the top sides in the competition with Pakistan and the defending champions India.

The preparations of the Asia Cup have been bamboozling for the two sides and they would look to go in with full force. There have been some changes among the two sides which includes some inclusions as well and the most notable one is the inclusion of Lasith Malinga in the Sri Lankan side.

Bangladesh would be happy to receive the services of their vital experienced cog Shakib Al Hassan who was in doubt before the start of Asia Cup. With his availability, the Tigers really look unstoppable and a semi-final spot looks in sight for the last year’s semi-finalists.

Pitch Conditions: The hot and humid conditions in Dubai will mean that the surface would be dry and the batsmen will enjoy batting on a track like this. Spinners might come in handy as the game goes on but it would be a day for the batsmen.

Fantasy Picks


  • Among the wicketkeepers, we would suggest you to pick the experienced campaigner Mushfiqur Rahim, he is one of the biggest batting mainstays of Bangladesh along with the likes of Tamim Iqbal and Shakib al Hassan.


  • Among the batsmen, we would like you to pick Tamim Iqbal, Angelo Mathews in your fantasy teams. Tamim has been in brilliant form of late and is the leading run-getter for Bangladesh in the last calendar year. Angelo Mathews was in a brilliant knick in the last series against South Africa which makes him one of the best picks in your fantasy team.


  • Among the all-rounders, Shakib Al Hassan and Thisara Perera would be the ample choice as they give their best inputs with both bat and ball.
