Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka has always been one of the toughest opponent to play against when they are at home. So far they had a mighty head to head record against Bangladesh at home winning all 8 test matches against Bangladesh and more specifically 7 of them by an innings margin. But Bangladesh in the current series played really well to draw the 1st test match but Sri Lanka won the 2nd test and won the series as well. They would be disappointed to not to win the ODI series against Bangladesh. But Bangladesh did well and deserved that win in the 3rd ODI though the rain played a big part on that. But Sri Lanka wouldn’t be that happy with the results and they would want to win the only T20 match and with that end the season on high.
Bangladesh: Bangladesh showed how much they have improved in recent times in both test cricket and ODI. They have recorded their best performance so far in touring Sri Lanka. For the first time they drew a test match against Sri Lanka and then they also drew the ODI series 1-1 as the other match was abandoned due to rain. But whatever it is they never let Sri Lanka go on to win the match without a fight like all the past tours. So this is what they have achieved in this tour. They played really well to draw the 1st test and also draw the ODI series. Some of the experienced cricketers like Sakib Al Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza, Tamim Iqbal were missed out due to injury. But the replacing players didn’t allow Sri Lanka capitalize on that and gave them a good fight. Now they would want to end the tour winning the only T20 International match of the tour.
Match will start on 19:00 IST on 31st March.
