After narrowly escaping to win the first match, the hosts, Bangladesh, made a solid comeback in the second T20I to level the ongoing three-match series. In the last game, Sri Lanka struggled with their batting and were not able to put up a great total on the board, which ultimately became the reason for their loss.

For Bangladesh, all their top-order batters looked solid during the chase, especially their captain Najmul Hossain Shanto, who scored a solid fifty as Bangladesh comfortably won the game by eight wickets. Now going forward, both sides would be eager to secure the series with a solid win in the upcoming game.

Pitch Report

As of now, the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium’s pitch has supported the batters very well, as players from both sides have enjoyed batting here. Batting gets much easier in the second innings, courtesy of the heavy dew, and for that reason, the captain winning the toss would definitely be looking to chase. Batting first, the team will have to score at least 180 plus to be in the game.

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Najmul Hossain Shanto, who has recently been appointed as the full-time captain for Bangladesh in all three formats, showcased great temperament and form in the last game. He is expected to continue his good batting form in the upcoming game as well, courtesy of maintaining a good strike rate even while playing risk-free cricket.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

Shoriful Islam showcased his prowess with the new ball in the last game, despite going wicketless. He has been instrumental for Bangladesh in recent times, and his ability to swing the ball both ways at a good speed makes him a real threat to the opposition batters, especially with the new ball. He would be looking to continue his good form in the upcoming game as well.
