Bangladesh has won only one out of their three matches previously played in the tournament. On the other hand, Sri Lanka lost against the Black Caps, won the one against the Afghans, and their third match which was against the Men in Green was called off due to rain. Both the teams will look forward to register their second win the tournament. Let’s have a look at their key players.

Shakib Al Hasan- This Bangladeshi all-rounder can turn the match in their stride at even the most crucial situation in the game. In 3 matches played in the tournament, he has already claimed two half centuries and one century. He scored a spectacular 100 against the tournament’s joint favourites, England and registered a brilliant 121 runs in 119 deliveries that included 12 fours and a six. He has been exceptional in the bowling department as well and has claimed 3 wickets in his three games. His consistency will be Bangladesh’s biggest asset despite their poor performance in the tournament.

Dimuth Karunaratne- Sri Lanka relies heavily on skipper Dimuth Karunaratne as far as their batting line up is concerned. He has played a major role in providing his team with the much needed stability in the batting line-up along with opener Kusal Perera. This opening partnership between the skipper and Kusal will determine the team’s overall batting performance. Sri Lanka will look forward to bounce back in the tournament and register their second win against Bangladesh.
