Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will take on each other in the 15th match of the T20 World Cup 2021. Both sides earned qualification into Super 12 stage after doing well in the first round. Sri Lanka’s journey was too smooth, as they won all of their matches in Group A and topped the table with 6 points. Maheesh Theekshana is doubtful for this match due to side strain.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, too had to cross the qualifiers round in order to cement their place in the Super 12. Surprisingly, they had lost to Scotland in their first game, but thn recovered well and won their next 2 matches quite comfortably against Oman and PNG. Both sides are in excellent form and we can expect a cracker of a contest between the sides.

Top Picks – Batters
Avishka Fernando is a reliable batter for Sri Lanka. In 3 matches in this World Cup, he has scored 32 runs at an average of 32.
Mahmudullah played a captain’s inning in the last match against PNG, where he bought up his sixth T20I half-century. In 3 matches in this World Cup, he has scored 90 runs at an average of 30 and a strike rate of 150.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
One can’t keep Shakib Al Hasan away from the game. He has the happy knack of picking up crucial wickets and knows how to score runs as well. In 3 matches in this World Cup, he has scored 108 runs and has also scalped 9 wickets at an economy of 4.5.
Wanindu Hasaranga is Sri Lanka’s frontline all-rounder, who has been in exceptional form with both bat and ball. In 3 matches in this World Cup, he has picked up 6 wickets and has also scored 71 runs.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Lahiru Kumara has been impressive with the ball in the last 3 matches. He has picked up 7 wickets at an economy of 3.61, with the best figures of 3 for 7.
Despite going for 8.5 runs an over, Mustafizur Rahman has picked up 6 wickets in the last 3 matches, with the best figures of 4 for 36.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
Kusal Perera’s knock of 33* runs from 24 balls in the last game against the Netherlands should have given him some sort of confidence. He can be destructive once he starts scoring runs.
