Venue Details

Dhaka Pitch has been a good track to bat on with little bit of assistance to spin bowlers owin to the slowness of the track. Run scoring is will be tough with the old ball on this pitch. We expect teams to score around 260-270 runs on this pitch.  

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option as they will be unaware of the pitch conditions. Chasing teams have 59-50 win-loss record at this venue.  

BAN vs SL Winning Prediction

Bangladesh has a better experienced team, home conditions, and winning streak on their side coming into this match. They also have great depth and balance with a number of all-rounders in the team. Sri Lanka will be hoping a change in leadership will bring a change in their results. They will rely on their batsmen to provide a big score as they have little inexperienced bowling attack. We expect Bangladesh to win this match and lead the series 1-0.

Bangladesh will win the match & Lead the series 1-0
