Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI Match Prediction 2024

BAN vs SL 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Bangladesh will take on Sri Lanka in the second ODI. The match will be played at Zahur Ahmed Stadium, Chattogram and will start at 2:00 PM IST on March 15.

Bangladesh started the ODI series on a positive note as they defeated Sri Lanka comprehensively by six wickets. Having bowled out Sri Lanka for 255, the team recovered from 23-3 to chase the target, courtesy of a brilliant hundred by captain Najmul Hussain Shanto.

For Sri Lanka, Kusal Mendis continued his great run and scored a fifty but other batters failed to convert the starts into a big score as the team was bowled out for a below par score. Sri Lanka started well with the ball but once the dew settled in, it was an easy task for Bangladesh.

The teams are evenly matched and the series will be a close affair thus batters from both teams need to ensure they play a big knock once they are set at the crease.

BAN vs SL Match Toss Prediction

Captain winning the toss should chase. There was heavy dew in the first game and that is a big enough reason to bowl.

BAN vs SL Pitch Report

The pitch will be flat and bowling wicket to wicket can create problems for the batters. Batters need to get set before cutting loose.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

Having taken a lead in the series, Bangladesh are unlikely to change their winning combination. Also, most of the players did well so there is very little scope for a change unless there is an injury concern. 

BAN Key Players

  • Najmul Hossain Shanto – The skipper played a magnificent innings of 122 to help the team recover from a miserable position and win the game. Shanto has blown hot and cold in recent times but the hundred will give him the much needed confidence which he can carry and own the series.
  • Mushfiqur Rahim – Rahim made his presence felt in the very first game of the series as he scored 73 in 84 balls to take the team over the line. Rahim is the most experienced player in the Bangladesh team and a lot of their hopes rest on him.
  • Taskin Ahmed – Taskin Ahmed bowled with fire in the first ODI and bagged three wickets. The wickets are slow thus having genuine pace can help get wickets with the new ball.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh played well in New Zealand where they lost a close series 2-1.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Sri Lanka too are unlikely to make a change in the second ODI as it is a must win game and they have already fielded their best XI. 

SL Key Players

  • Kusal Mendis – Mendis continued the great form from the T20I series and scored a brisk 59 runs. Mendis has form behind him thus he needs to ensure he plays a big innings once set at the crease.
  • Pathum Nissanka – Pathum Nissanka had a great series against Afghanistan and became the first Sri Lanka batter to score a double hundred in ODIs. He looked good for his 36 in the first ODI before losing his wicket. Nissanka will be eyeing a bigger innings in the second game.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga – Wanindu Hasaranga had a bad game as he was taken for plenty and could not take a wicket. However, he is a champion bowler and can be backed to make a strong comeback.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka’s defeated Afghanistan in the last series. This was the first defeat for Sri Lanka after five wins.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Kusal Mendis (C&WK), Pathum Nissanka, Avishka Fernando, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Janith Liyanage, Charith Asalanka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Maheesh Theekshana, Pramod Madushan, Dilshan Madushanka, Lahiru Kumara

Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Betting Odds

Sri Lanka lost the first ODI to Bangladesh but still they are slight favourites on betting platforms. They are a good side and capable of scripting a comeback.

Who will win Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI Match?

We suggest backing Sri Lanka to win. Sri Lanka’s batters are in form and thus if the players can play a bit sensibly, they can post or chase big scores. Also, if they are chasing the chances of their win will increase.

🏆 Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Prediction

Sri Lanka will start the match as favourites. Sri Lanka have a good team and have a slightly more stable batting lineup. If the players stay there for long, they will end up scoring big or chasing huge targets. Their spinners failed in last game but both Hasaranga and Theekshana are good bowlers. We feel, Sri Lanka will level the series in the 2nd ODI.
