Despite some key players in the form of Kusal Perera and Wanindu Hasaranga missing the first T20I of the series, Sri Lanka (SL) managed to beat Bangladesh (BAN) by three runs. With the bat, Kusal Mendis (59 off 36) and Sadeera Samarawickrama (61* off 48) played some brilliant cricket while Charith Asalanka played a ruthless knock of unbeaten 44 off 21 to help Sri Lanka post 206 runs on the board.

Their brilliant batting performance should give them confidence ahead of the second T20I on March 6 at Sylhet. However, Bangladesh too put up a show with the bat in the second innings. Mahmudullah and Jaker Ali made 54 and 68 runs respectively as their partnership kept the Bangla Tigers alive in the competition. However, the other batters failed to step up.

Pitch Report

The surface in the first T20I helped the batters and the trend should continue in Sylhet. The bowlers are likely to have a tough time once again. Bowling first will be ideal and anything over 190 runs will be a good score on the surface.

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Kusal Mendis is currently one of the most dangerous batters in white-ball cricket. He is in remarkable form and if he manages to keep up with the momentum, Sri Lanka can hope to cross the 200-run markonce again.

Most of the bowlers had a tough time in the last match but Angelo Mathews proved to be an exception. He bowled three overs and picked two wickets for just 17 runs. The experienced played has done a good job since his return to the squad and would hope to continue in the same fashion.
