Bangladesh has handed a significant upset in the tournament by beating Sri Lanka in the must-win game to reach the finals of the Nidahas Trophy 2018. Meanwhile, the Tigers will face India in the final later today at Colombo.
So far, Bangladesh had played a brilliant brand of cricket coming into the final. At first, they chased down a record target of 215 set by Sri Lanka and then kept nerves to reach finals hitting six of the last balls.
Further, the Tigers received a major boost with the regular skipper Shakib Al Hasan returning from injury. Shakib had an average game against Sri Lanka, but his conduct in the field was highly criticised.
Although Bangladesh doesn’t have a good record against India, they will be eager to create a upset and win the Nidahas Trophy.
Meanwhile, they are likely to field the same team from the last game.
Here is the predicted XI of Bangladesh for the final of Nidahas Trophy:
The southpaw is Bangladesh’s most experienced batsmen with a lot of ability. Although he didn’t score at a good rate, Tamim held one end with a timely half-century. He needs to take responsibility in a crucial game like this.
Although Liton failed to score runs in the last game, he has had a good tour so far. He has shown temperament and can score quick runs.Bangladesh will want to provide a quickfire start against the Men in Blue.
Soumya Sarkar’s poor run saw him going demoted in the batting order. However, he can strike the ball hard. The stylish left-hander will be keen to make it up in the final game.
