Bangladesh are scheduled to play Asia Cup 2016 title reigning champion Sri Lanka in the 5th match of tournament on 28 February at Sher-E-Bangla stadium in Mirpur. Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh twenty20 match in Micromax Asia Cup will begin at 19:30 local time, 19:00 IST and 13:30 GMT.
Both teams are coming to this match from winning ways as Sri Lanka and Bangladesh defeated United Arab Emirates in their respective clashes. Lasith Malinga’s return to the Lankan team has really worked for the side and eventually he is looking in terrific form. He bowled exceptionally well against UAE and took 4 wickets in that match which clearly specifies that he is clicking for upcoming big games in Asia Cup and then in world t20.
Sri Lanka has got big concern with their batting as in the UAE match, SL was on the top at one time and lost only 1 wicket till 10 overs. But after that team just managed to score 67-68 odd runs in the final 10 overs. Dinesh Chandimal, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Sheehan Jayasuriya need to score runs and get back in the form ahead of big games against India and Pakistan in the competition.
On the other hand Bangladesh team will also be looking to score runs as batsmen haven’t scored big runs in the tournament against India and UAE.
Sri Lanka cricket team will be favorites to win this 5th game of Asia Cup against Bangladesh. They have got 55 percent winning chances versus home team.
