SL vs BAN Preview: 

  • In Match 6, Kusal Mendis showcased his batting prowess by amassing an impressive 92 runs from just 84 balls against Afghanistan. Considering his remarkable form, we believe Mendis is the prime candidate to emerge as Sri Lanka’s top run-scorer when they face Bangladesh. Adding to Sri Lanka’s strengths, Kasun Rajitha’s recent performance saw him claiming 4 crucial wickets in the previous game, making him a solid choice as Sri Lanka’s leading wicket-taker in this upcoming fixture.
  • On the Bangladeshi side, Mushfiqur Rahim exhibited his batting finesse by notching up 64 runs, even in a losing effort against Pakistan. As we look ahead to their next challenge, Rahim stands out as our favored pick to be Bangladesh’s highest run-scorer in this game. Moreover, Mehidy Hasan Miraz exhibited his bowling prowess by dismissing Imam-ul-Haq in their recent clash. Given his proficiency, we recommend considering Miraz as Bangladesh’s top wicket-taker on this Colombo pitch.
  • Taking into account Kusal Mendis’s boosted confidence following his remarkable innings against Afghanistan, we strongly advise selecting him to surpass the 29.5-run mark in what promises to be an electrifying Super Fours clash.

Weather & Pitch Report


The weather forecast for this game anticipates overcast skies, high humidity, and sweltering heat persisting throughout. It would come as quite a shock if the proceedings remained uninterrupted, given the looming possibility of thunderstorms from the game’s commencement to its conclusion.

Pitch Report of SL vs BAN:

The Colombo pitch is renowned for its characteristic low bounce and its propensity to favor spin bowlers. A target exceeding 285 runs would pose a formidable challenge to chase down during the second innings of the match.

Toss Prediction: 

In five out of the last seven ODIs held in Colombo, the team batting first emerged victorious. This trend leads us to anticipate that both captains, if they win the toss, will opt to bat first in the upcoming match.

SL vs BAN Team NEWS: 

SL Team News: 

Captain Dasun Shanaka has enjoyed the advantage of maintaining an unchanged lineup in both tournament matches thus far. While the allure of alterations may arise with the change in venue, we anticipate that the winning XI will remain intact for the upcoming match.

BAN Team News: 

Shakib Al Hasan made four alterations to the lineup during the toss in Lahore, with Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, and Tanzid Hasan being replaced by Hasan Mahmud, Litton Das, Shamim Hossain, and Afif Hossain. We anticipate that Mahedi Hasan will be included in the team as an extra spin option for this match.

Winning Chances: 

Bangladesh produced a strong performance with the ball in the second innings of their match with Pakistan on Wednesday but unfortunately the damage had already been done. If they can produce a solid batting display which lasts 50 overs in Colombo then they will be in the game. We are predicting a tight contest but we think that Sri Lanka have a stronger batting line-up as well as a bowling unit who know the conditions very well. Our prediction is for Sri Lanka to win.

SL vs BAN Key Players: 

Sri Lanka 

Kusal Mendis 

At 28 years of age, this accomplished international batsman enters the upcoming match brimming with self-assurance, having impressively struck six boundaries and three mighty sixes in the previous game.

Matheesha Pathirana 

The youthful fast bowler may not find substantial support from the pitch, but his precision in delivering yorkers and the occasional well-timed bouncer will certainly keep the opposing batsmen vigilant and alert.

Kasun Rajitha 

The 30-year-old medium-fast bowler will bring his wealth of experience and an array of variations to this venue. In the previous match, he showcased his skill by dismissing Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, and Rahmat Shah early on in the batting order.


Mushfiqur Rahim 

The wicketkeeper-batsman assumed the role of the highest run-scorer for Bangladesh when he walked to the crease, rescuing the team from a precarious situation. Given the absence of the in-form Najmul Hossain Shanto, his wealth of experience becomes paramount in bolstering this batting lineup.

Shakib Al Hasan 

The captain played a pivotal role in orchestrating an innings rebuild during the match on Wednesday. However, his subsequent dismissal triggered a batting collapse. It’s worth noting that he is likely to pose a greater threat with the ball on this particular pitch.

Mehidy Hasan Miraz 

This versatile player has already notched up a century in the Asia Cup 2023. However, we anticipate that his bowling skills will shine particularly bright on this pitch, where his precision is likely to receive ample support and assistance.

SL vs BAN Team Forms: 

SL Team Form: 

Despite their recent narrow victory, Sri Lanka is currently riding a remarkable 12-match winning streak in One Day Internationals.

BAN Team Form: 

While Bangladesh displayed some encouraging aspects in their performance on Wednesday, it’s worth noting that they have encountered defeats in three out of their last five matches in this particular format.
