We can expect to see a low bouncing track which will spin from Day 1 and turn more as the Test develops. Pace bowlers will have to work harder to pick up wickets at this venue than in Sylhet.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

There was a Test debut for 21 year old right-arm medium fast bowler Nahid Rana in Sylhet and, after he returned figures of 3/87 and 2/128, we can expect him to retain his place in the side. Bangladesh need to improve with the bat, ball and in the field in this Test.

BAN Team Batting

A lack of experience in the batting line-up was there for all to see in the first Test as Bangladesh failed to make 190 in either innings. Mominul Haq hit 87 not out in the second innings and he, along with Litton Das and Najmul Hossain Shanto, will all need to step up in this game.

BAN Team Bowling

Sri Lanka’s bowlers lost their way in the third innings of the match in Sylhet and that is an area that they will need to bowl more consistently in this match. Shoriful Islam took one wicket in both innings and the team management will be looking for him to bring his white ball success into this Test.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh come into this second Test of the series looking to avoid their third successive defeat in this format.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Zakir Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Mominul Haque, Taijul Islam, Shahadat Hossain, Litton Das (wk), Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Shoriful Islam, Khaled Ahmed, Nahid Rana

SL Team News

There were no debutants for Sri Lanka in Sylhet and the same experienced XI is predicted to be selected for this final game of the series. Under head coach Chris Silverwood, there will always be an emphasis on improving as a side and he will have picked out first innings runs as key for this match.

SL Team Batting

It was a very strange first innings scorecard for Sri Lanka in Sylhet with both Dhananjaya de Silva and Kamindu Mendis making 102 and the rest making 17 or under! Both also made centuries in the second innings with Dimuth Karunaratne making a half-century at the top of the order. Across the line-up, there are experienced  run getters who we expect to contribute.

SL Team Bowling

After the Sri Lanka pace bowlers dominated the Bangladesh batters throughout the opening Test, we are expecting them to have to work a little harder for their wickets in Chattogram. Slow left-arm spinner Prabath Jayasuriya should be a threat throughout this Test.

SL Team Form

After losing their previous two Tests to Pakistan, Sri Lanka have now won their last Tests by 10 wickets and by 328 runs.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Nishan Madushka, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Mendis (wk), Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Dhanajaya de Silva (c), Kamindu Mendis, Prabath Jayasuriya, Kasun Rajitha, Vishwa Fernando, Lahiru Kumara

🏆 Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Prediction

There was a huge gap between the sides in the opening Test and we expect Bangladesh to be stronger in this game. However, Sri Lanka have experience as well as talent in their side and we are backing them to win again in this Test.
