SL vs BAN Prediction, Who Will Win The Match Between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh? ICC T20 World Cup Match No 15. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will lock horns in the 15th match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 on Sunday at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Both the teams have performed well in the first round of the tournament.
Sri Lanka topped Group A in the qualifying round, having managed to secure 3 wins in 3 matches. Their batting hasn’t been consistent enough. However, someone has always stepped for them in all the games.
Having said that, a collective batting effort is what they have lacked so far. Kusal Perera returned to form in the last game with an unbeaten 33-run knock. The top three haven’t made great returns and this is something to worry. But, with Kusal Perera getting back in form, Sri Lanka would feel a lot more confident.
Looking at how Sri Lanka has bowled in the last three games, the bowling unit does inspire a lot of confidence. Mystery spinner, Maheesh Theekshana has been brilliant with the ball in the power play.
He has managed to provide initial breakthroughs on a consistent basis. He is currently Sri Lanka’s highest wicket-taker with 8 wickets to his name in 3 matches at an average of 5.62.
His counterpart, Wanindu Hasaranga has been equally brilliant with the ball. In the last game against the Netherlands, Hasaranga claimed three wickets for just 9 runs in his four overs. Overall, he has 6 wickets in 3 matches. Besides, the fast bowlers too have done a decent job and Sri Lanka should feel proud of that.
On the other hand, Bangladesh began their ICC T20 World Cup 2021 campaign with a defeat at the hands of Scotland. However, they bounced back strongly and won their next two games against Oman and Papua New Guinea.
In their last game against Papua New Guinea, Shakib Al-Hasan, once again, starred with the ball. He was brilliant both with the bat and ball. Bangladesh batted first in that game and Shakib Al Hasan made 46 runs off just 37 balls, including 3 fours. Mahmudullah also played an outstanding knock of 50 runs off just 28 balls to help his team post a formidable 181-run total.
Shakib Al Hasan ripped apart the Netherland’s middle-order to leave them reeling at 29 for 7. The former Bangladesh skipper finished his figures with 9 for 4 in 4 overs. Saifuddin and Taskin Ahmed picked two wickets each, while Mahedi Hasan returned with figures of 1 for 20 in 4 overs.
Much like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh too have a strong bowling unit. The fate of the game, therefore, is going to be decided on who bats well on a slow and sluggish track of the Sharjah on Saturday. Looking at the batting units of both sides, we are backing Sri Lanka to win the game.
