SRI vs BAN Prediction, 11Wickets Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – Bangladesh tour of Sri Lanka, 1st Test

Mominul Haque is usually a reliable batsman in this format of the game.

Preview:

Sri Lanka will take on Bangladesh for 2 Test matches at their home soil, before they travel to Bangladesh for the ODIs. The Lankan Lions played well in their last Test series against the West Indian side. Away from home, they were able to play out two draws in as many games.

On the other hand, Bangladesh’s form is terrible in every single competition. The Tigers recently lost an ODI and a T20I series against New Zealand very badly. Prior to that, they were beaten by an amateurish West Indies team, and that too, at their home soil.
