Sri Lanka have performed exceedingly well in the first round of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. They topped Group A after winning three out of three matches. Sri Lanka bundled out Netherlands for just 44 runs in the last game and then chased down the score in just 7.1 overs.
Dasun Shanaka and Co. will begin their Super 12 campaign against Bangladesh at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. They would be hoping to continue the winning momentum further into the tournament. Here’s a look at our predicted playing XI of Sri Lanka against Bangladesh.
SL vs BAN: Sri Lanka’s (SL) Predicted Playing XI Against Bangladesh (BAN) – ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Match 15
Openers: Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Perera
Nissanka played a stellar knock of 61 runs off 47 deliveries against Ireland, but failed to replicate that performance in the other two games. On a sluggish track of Sharjah, Sri Lanka would be hoping him to play well and give a good start.
His partner, Kusal Perera returned to form with an unbeaten 33-run knock against Netherlands. That knock should give him enough confidence and is likely to keep the team in good stead.
