3rd ODI Squad Comparison

Sri Lanka

After successfully defending 314 runs in the 1st innings, Sri Lanka chased down a target of 239 runs in the 2nd ODI with 7 wickets in hand. An 82-runs inning from Avishka Fernando at the top, followed by fifty from Angelo Matthews in the middle helped Sri Lanka seal the series 2-0. Sri Lankan captain Dimuth Karunaratne hasn’t scored much in last two matches, though he will be pleased with the form of his middle-order batsmen. Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, and Angelo Matthews are consistent in building partnerships and have strengthened the Sri Lankan batting order.

The two spinners, Dhananjaya de Silva and Akila Dananjaya were impressive on the dry surface here at R Premadasa Stadium. While de Silva was wicketless in his 10 overs, he had an impressive economy of 3.90 r.p.o. Akila Dananjaya was picked in the playing XI for the 2nd ODI and he bagged 2 wickets for 39 runs. Nuwan Pradeep and Isuru Udana picked 2 wickets each, both striking early in the innings dismissing Bangladesh openers. Sri Lankan side looks solid in both bowling and batting departments. The pacers are successful in picking up early wickets, while the spinners do a great job in the middle overs, making the visitors earn every single run.


This series has turned out to be a learning curve for Bangladesh. While their performance in the ICC World Cup was better than Sri Lanka, it revolved around Shakib al Hasan. Shakib’s absence has affected the side greatly in the batting department – no reliable number 3 batsmen. While the spinners Mehidy Hasan and Taijul Islam bowled really well in the last game, none of them had a match-winning spell.

Mustafizur Rahman picked 2 for 50 in 8 overs, and at that economy, defending 238 will never be easy and that’s when Bangladesh needed someone with a magical spell. Mushfiqur Rahim is the only batsman to score fifty-plus score in both matches for Bangladesh. He was unbeaten on 98 in the 2nd ODI, while the Mahmadullah, Mohammad Mithun and Sabbir Rahman were all out cheaply. Mehidy Hasan added some crucial runs, in the end, scoring 43 off 49 balls, building a partnership of 84-runs with Mushfiqur Rahim for the 7th wicket. Bangladesh has a strong middle-order comprising Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahamdullah, Sabbir Rahman who are all capable of playing big innings. They’re struggling presently as a team though they’ve got great bowlers and batsmen in the side. It could be a captaincy issue with stand-in captain Tamim Iqbal not able to play his cards right in the middle.

Our Prediction for Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh

Sri Lanka are favourites to win this match

Though Bangladesh has the ability to bounce back, the loss in the 2nd ODI must have been hard on the team that’s missing their regular captain and Shakib Al Hasan. Sri Lanka on the other hand, seems to be discovering new heights after the many lows in the last few years. The batsmen are playing freely and with confidence, while pacers have got everything going right in the early overs.

Looking at the current form of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, Sri Lanka would be the clear favourites to win the 3rd and final ODI of this series.
