BAN vs SL 3rd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Bangladesh will take on Sri Lanka in the final T20I. The match will be played at Sylhet International Cricket Ground and will start at 2:30 PM IST on March 09.

Bangladesh bounced back in style and defeated Sri Lanka by 8 wickets to level the series. It was a one-sided victory where Bangladesh restricted Sri Lanka to 165-5 and later chased the target in just the 19th over. In the first game, Bangladesh got close to the target of 207 but lost the game by just 3 runs.

The hosts will be pleased with their performance in the series. The lower order scored runs in the first game and the top order fired in the second match. For Sri Lanka, most of the batters have got runs in the series as well thus the winner of the final game could well be decided by the performance of bowlers.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

The hosts are likely to step on the park with an unchanged playing XI. Bangladesh were top notch in the second game and they would like to retain the winning combination given the significance of the match.

BAN Key Players

  • Towhid Hridoy – Towhid Hridoy played an unbeaten knock of 32 in the second game, showing that he is still in very good form. He scored over 450 runs in the BPL. Hridoy is a match winner for Bangladesh and will be eyeing a big score in final game.
  • Najmul Hossain Shanto – The captain returned for form with a brisk 53 in the second game. He is one of the key batters in the top order and runs from him will significantly boost Bangladesh’s hopes of posting or chasing a big score.
  • Shoriful Islam – Shoriful Islam did not pick a wicket in second game but he gave away just 20 runs in 4 overs. Shoriful was the highest wicket-taker in BPL and has bowled well in both games. He’d be eyeing a match winning performance in the final.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh have been good in both games so far. They almost chased 207 in the first game and then picked up a crushing win by eight wickets in the 2nd T20I.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Wanindu Hasaranga is all set to return to the playing XI as his two match ban by the ICC ended in last game. Apart from him, we don’t see Sri Lanka making any other changes to the playing XI.

SL Key Players

  • Kusal Mendis – Mendis backed his 59 run knock in the first game with a crisp 36 run knock in second T20I. Mendis has looked the best batter for Sri Lanka in the series and he would be eyeing a big score in the final game of the series. 
  • Sadeera Samarawickrama – Sadeera Samarawickrama scored 61 in the first game but he was very ordinary in the second game and could score 7 in 11 balls. He has a point to prove in the final game and will have his sight set on a big score in final.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga – Wanindu Hasaranga will return to the team and it will be a massive boost for Sri Lanka. Hasaranga is a match winner for Sri Lanka, both with the bat and ball.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka have played good cricket as well as most of the batters have scored runs, however, the bowling has been slightly wayward.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Kusal Mendis, Avishka Fernando, Kamindu Mendis, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Angelo Mathews, Dasun Shanaka, Charith Asalanka, Wanindu Hasaranga (C), Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana, , Dilshan Madushanka

Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Betting Odds

Sri Lanka are getting the favourites tag on betting platforms. Sri Lanka did lose the second game but they are a more established side and thus getting better odds.

Who will win Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka 3rd T20 Match?

We suggest backing Sri Lanka to win. It has been a closely fought series but what works in Sri Lanka’s advantage in the third T20I is the return of Wanindu Hasaranga. The champion all-rounder has single handedly won several games of Sri Lanka and his inclusion makes Sri Lanka a very strong opposition.

🏆 Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Prediction

Sri Lanka will start the match as favourites. They lost the second game to Bangladesh but the return of Wanindu Hasaranga makes them stronger. Hasaranga is a match winner for Sri Lanka and can single handedly win a game for his team. Also, he takes pressure off other players as well so Sri Lanka have a slight edge over Bangladesh heading into the final game. Back Sri Lanka to win.
