Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka - 3rd ODI
The 3rd ODI of the three-match series between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka in Bangladesh.
While Sri Lanka were unchanged in the second ODI, Bangladesh made a couple of changes and brought in Shoriful Islam in place of Taskin Ahmed and Mosaddek Hossain in place of Mohammed Mithun. That though had little bearing on the result of the match.
Like the first ODI, when Bangladesh posted over 250 runs after getting in trouble initially, the home side was down at 74/4 after the dismissals of Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan and Mosaddek Hossain within the first 16 overs.
Just like the first match, Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim joined hands to stabilize the Bangladesh innings. Rahim went on to make a brilliant 125 laced with 10 boundaries. Mahmudullah also did well to score 41 off 58 balls.
Mohammad Saifuddin was run out for 11 off 30 deliveries, shortly after he was pinged on the head by a Dushmantha Chameera bouncer and experienced concussion symptoms later. He was replaced by Taskin Ahmed who is likely to retain his spot for this match.
Opener Danushka Gunathilaka was the top scorer for Sri Lanka with 24 runs off 46 balls. Pathum Nissanka was the only other batsman to touch 20.
Dushmantha Chameera and Lakshan Sandakan picked up three wickets each. Isuru Udana also bagged two scalps while bowling at an economy rate of 5.40.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Bangladesh - Tamim Iqbal (c), Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mosaddek Hossain, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam
Sri Lanka - Kusal Perera (c & wk), Danushka Gunathilaka, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka, Ashen Bandara, Wanindu Hasaranga, Isuru Udana, Lakshan Sandakan, Dushmantha Chameera
