BAN vs SL 1st ODI Match Preview
Bangladesh will take on Sri Lanka in the 1st of the 3-match ODI series on the 23rd of May at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
Both teams are coming off defeats in their last international limited-overs outings, with Bangladesh getting beaten by New Zealand and Sri Lanka by the West Indies.
Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan team have made some bold changes ahead of the series. Kusal Perera has been named as the captain for this tour while Kusal Mendis will have the responsibilities of vice-captain. Experienced players like Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, and Lahiru Thirimanne have been excluded from the squad and hence all the eyes will be on the young players.
Shiran Fernando, Chamika Karunaratne, and Binura Fernando are the new faces in the squad while players like Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, and Dhananjaya de Silva will have added responsibilities on their shoulders.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, will be well equipped with players like Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman in the squad, who recently had game time in IPL 2021. They’ll hope to make an impact on the game, especially in home conditions.
With both teams itching to get off to a winning start, we should be in for an absolute cracker at the Shere Bangla National Stadium on Sunday.
