Match Details:

The 3rd and final game of the 3-match Unofficial ODI series between Sri Lanka A and Bangladesh A will be played at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

The match starts at 9:45 AM local time (4:15 AM GMT) (9:45 AM IST).


Bangladesh A managed to sneak in a 1-wicket win on Thursday to level the 3-match unofficial ODI series against Sri Lanka A. The expectations for the visitors were as high as completing a clean sweep. However, they started the series with a huge defeat as they were bundled out for just 116. The home side chased down the target in 25.5 overs for the loss of only three wickets.

In the 2nd game, the Sri Lanka A were cruising towards 270+ total as a strong 4th wicket partnership put them at 158/3 in 34th over. Some tight bowling towards the end by Bangladesh A saw the hosts limited to just 226/9. Contributions from the top-order saw the visitors placed at 178/3 by 40th over. Some late strikes from the Sri Lankans spiced the game which ended on the last ball after Bangladesh A were 9 down.

Weather Condition/Report:

The weather forecast doesn’t look ideal in getting a full 50-over game on Saturday. There will be scattered thunderstorms with rain throughout the game.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The RPS Colombo once again saw some initial movement for the pacers like in recent most One-Day games. The spinners get help as the game progresses here. The ideal conditions for the batsmen are seen during 15-35 overs.

Average first innings score: 240 (Last five List A matches)
