BAN vs SL Dream11 Tips for 2nd ODI Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Live Score Today Match Prediction 25 May


BAN vs SL Dream11 Prediction: Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will lock horns with each other in the 2nd ODI of the series here at Dhaka. After winning the first game, hosts Bangladesh will be looking to seal the series here. Their experienced players showed their worth in the last game and proved how important they are to this team’s future. Mushfiqur Rahim has been a lynchpin to this team’s middle order and he will be vital again. Bowlers did a fairly decent job derailing Sri Lanka’s chase early. They will be required to put in a collective effort again.

Sri Lanka though, are in a stop of bother. They are currently 12th in World Cup Super League points table and need a win here to gain some confidence. Their bowlers were excellent in the first half of Bangladesh’s innings but allowed them to get away. With batting failing miserably to Mehidy’s offspin, there are plenty of questions to answer. For that, skipper Kusal Perera will want his team to show some intent that they lacked in the last match.

Who will win today match?
Bangladesh showed the value of experienced players who steered their ship in the last match. Despite being 99 for 4 at one point, they reached a respectable total and defended it smartly. Sri Lanka were totally on the opposite side. They had dropped their experienced players for this series and were unable to stop a batting collapse unlike the hosts. If Bangladesh win this game, it will be their first ever bilateral ODI series win over Sri Lanka. Looking at form, Bangladesh will start as favourites in BAN vs SL Dream 11 Today Match Prediction.
