Team analysis

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is led by Kusal Mendis in ODIs. He won his first ODI series against Afghanistan, but started this ODI series with a loss. Mendis had a good outing with the bat as he scored 59 and contributed to his team’s total. Bangladesh as a country will now have pitches that help the spinners.

Meanwhile, the Lanksn found trouble keeping pace with the trio of Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam and Tanzim Hasan Sakib. The bowling attack could also come back to haunt them in the second ODI. Their batsmen will also need to have a better outing in the next game.


Najmul Hossain Shanto leads the team in the absence of Shakib Al Hasan. He was disappointed by the batting of him in the T20I series and led with the bat in the first ODI with an unbeaten knock of 122. He also made very good use of his bowlers in the first ODI to challenge the Lankan batsmen. The important thing for Bangladesh is to continue the form they have shown in the next two matches.

Key factors

Field conditions

18 of the 29 matches played at this venue have been won by the chasing team. Chasing is the easiest way to win matches, as Bangladesh showed in the first match. They managed to nullify the threat of the Lankan spinners and score over 100 runs off them in almost 20 overs, leaving them no wickets either. Thus, Bangladesh were tactically brilliant in the first ODI.

Form and fitness

Nissanka returned to the ODI side and scored 36 in the first game after missing the T20I series with a hamstring injury. Kusal Perera is not part of the ODI team after missing the T20I also due to a respiratory infection. Shakib Al Hasan is not part of the Bangladesh team for the World Cup where he played with a visual defect. The current Tigers team has no injury problems.

Tactical insight

Bangladesh took advantage in the chase and took advantage of better batting conditions after Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to bat first in Chattogram. The place is known to be a chasing ground and Mendis should learn from the mistakes he made in the first ODI. Captains should prefer to chase in this place.
