BAN vs SL Dream11 Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka ODI Today Match Prediction 25 May [STATS for GRAND LEAGUE – Batting, Bowling, Team, Pitch]


BAN vs SL Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka ODI 2021: Following a 33-run defeat in the opening game, Sri Lanka will head into the 2nd game with an aim to remain alive in the 3-game ODI series at the Sher-e-Bangla on May 25. Sri Lanka have only themselves to blame for a 0-1 deficit. After all, the bowlers did a good job by reducing Bangladesh to 257-6. That was a more than a manageable target but the fact that the visitors came short by 33 runs shows the team has a lot to improve on when it comes to the batting department. For Bangladesh, however, things should get only better. Two of their top batsmen failed to affect the game. But star opener Tamim Iqbal once again showed why he is a prized wicket as he held the inning together at the top, scoring a half-century while middle-order batsmen, Mushfiqur Rahim (84 off 87 balls) and Mahmudullah (54 off 76 balls), starred with the bat.

Who will win today match

Sri Lanka are enduring a transition at the moment. The team selected for this tour lacks experience and consistency. Bangladesh may not be a consistent outfit, but as a host, they have always given the visitors a run for their money. Bangladesh exploited the conditions better in the first match and we expect the same here. In our Dream 11 Today Match Prediction we back Bangladesh to win this match.
