India Match 3 of Group 1 of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Sri Lanka will lock horns Bangladesh at Sharjah cricket today. Both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh had to go through the first round group stage to secure their places in the Super 12s. While Sri Lanka topped Group A with three wins out of as many games, Bangladesh finished second in Group B behind Scotland.
The sluggish and slow nature of Sharjah wicket will benefit both the teams. However, Sri Lanka has a slight advantage given its pacers, who can clock 140 kmph, can use the low bounce. Bangladesh, on the other hand, has a likes of Mustafizur Rahman who can use his experience on these kinds of wicket.
Talking about team line-ups, Dinesh Chandimal lost his place in Sri Lanka playing over poor form during the qualifiers. It would be interesting to see whether Lanka team management pick the experienced batter for today’s match as Charith Asalanka too failed to grab Chandimal’s place after replacing him during the qualifiers.
