Today, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are ready for a heated knockout contest of Asia Cup 2022. This will be the series’ fifth match; both teams are expected to fight fiercely for their survival in this competition. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh faced the Afghanistan team in their opening matches, and both sides lost the challenges giving Afghanistan opportunities to step ahead. The team winning the challenge today will qualify for the Super 4, whereas the opponent will have to return.
The Sri Lankan team has won merely twice in the last ten games and their fans are expecting a power-packed performance today. The batting line-up of the team has disappointed in the previous challenges and hasn’t put up a big score on the board.
Dasun Shanaka’s team faced a crash in their last match. Their lack of confidence could be witnessed as they lost by 8 wickets against Afghanistan. The team scored mere 105 runs and the team needs good batsmen to set a proper target in their fight for survival.
The prime openers of Sri Lanka, Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis couldn’t influence the previous match and the duo need to present an amazing opening to create grounds for the players coming to the field later.
The bowling attack of Sri Lanka was also unimpressive and there are expectations of improved spells from Maheesh Theekshana and Dilshan Madushanka. The eyes are also hovering around Hasaranga as he is the key bowler for the team.
On the other hand, Shakib Al Hasan’s team lost by 7 wickets and the batsmen seemed rusty. However, today is a do-or-die situation for the team, and the team must manoeuvre a memorable inning today.
