BAN vs SL Today Match Prediction: After an emphatic win over the visitors in the first ODI, the hosts Bangladesh will again take on Sri Lanka for the 2nd of the 3 match ODI series. The alien away conditions and the current form of the opposition is again expected to trouble this fairly young Sri Lankan side. Even though the current form and the overall records at this ground stack up against the Lankans, they are expected to give a tough fight to this spirited Bangladeshi side.
In BAN vs SL Dream 11 Prediction, let’s see player stats and team form next.
Mehidy Hasan: The man in form picked up 4 wickets for just 30 runs in the first ODI, thereby taking the game completely away from the visitors. With a favourable pitch to manipulate on, expect him to continue his good run again in the 2nd ODI.
Mustafizur Rahman: The Fizz rampaged through the Lankan batting line-up in the first ODI. He picked up 3 wickets at an economy of 3.8 in less than 10 overs.
Mushfiqur Rahim: There is nothing to worry about the Bangladeshi batting till Mushfiqur is in the crease. He proved it yet again as he grinded his way towards a well made 84 of 87 balls.
Other valuable choices: Mahmudullah, Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan
Wanindu Hasaranga: Even though he failed with the ball, his exploits of 74 from 60 balls towards the flag end of the innings send a mini heart attack to the entire Bangladesh team. With a possible promotion up the batting order expected, he can be a valuable pick in the fantasy teams.
Other Valuable Picks: Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, Dhananjeya de Silva
BAN playing 11 (likely): Tamim Iqbal (C), Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar/Mohammad Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah Riyad, Afif Hossain Dhrubo, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman.
