About the Match

Bangladesh held its ground to draw the first test match against Sri Lanka; now the hosts will try to put up a better performance and win the 2nd Test that is to be played at Dhaka from 8th February. The Lankan batting line-up put up a tough fight, setting 713 runs as reply to Bangladesh’s first innings total of 513. However, the hosts came back to score 307 ending the match in a draw. While Bangladesh has the home advantage, Sri Lanka could pose a stiff challenge yet again and we could see some fireworks across the park over the weekend.

Match Preview

Bangladesh

The first innings saw Mominul Haque post a superb 176 off 214 that helped them build the foundation; Mushfiqur Rahim scored 92 while captain Mahmudullah scored 83 runs to take the total to 513. Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes tried to build a strong partnership but they fell quickly after posting 52 and 40 runs respectively. The bowling department put up a tough fight with spinners Taijul Islam claiming 4 wickets and Mehidy Hasan Miraz dismissing 3 opponents. Spinner Sunzamul Islam and pacer Mustafizur Rahman also took a wicket each that restricted the Lankans at 713.

In the 2nd innings, Mominul Haque came back to post a brilliant 105 runs while wicket-keeper batsman Liton Das contributed with 94. Tamim Iqbal yet again fell quickly after opening the innings for 41 runs. Haque and Das did well to steer the innings to a well-made 307 that helped them draw the match in the end. The hosts have done well in all departments of the game, and we could see a rejuvenated side.

Middle-order batsman Sabbir Rahman will return to the squad while spinner Sunzamul Islam has been dropped as he couldn’t impress much with the ball. Mahmudullah will continue to lead the side in Shakib’s absence while Rubel Hossain also won’t feature in the 2nd test.

Bangladesh Starting Lineup

Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan, Abdur Razzak, Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman.

Sri Lanka

Suranga Lakmal did well to claim 3 wickets in the first innings, stifling the hosts along with a superb show by spinners Rangana Herath and Sandakan, who took 5 wickets between them at regular intervals. They combined well to restrict Bangladesh at 513 all-out and have shown immense discipline with both pace and spin. At an economy of less than 3 runs per over, Lakmal was the most efficient while spinner Dilruwan Perera also brings depth to the spin attack, as he took a wicket in the first match.

Kusal Mendis’s brilliant 196 off 327 deliveries helped them post a challenging total; Dhananjeya de Silva played a useful knock, putting up a stupendous 173 from 229 balls. Youngster Roshen Silva showcased his batting skills, putting up a well-made century and helped them garner 713 runs along with good contributions by captain Dinesh Chandimal, who scored 87, and Niroshan Dickwella who posted 62.

Herath came back in the 2nd innings to dismiss 2 opponents in an economical manner while Dhananjeya, Perera and Sandakan took a wicket each to help draw the match. Although Matthews continues to be out of action, Chandimal could do well to lead them to a fine win.

Sri Lanka Starting Lineup

Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Mendis , Dhananjaya de Silva, Roshen Silva, Dinesh Chandimal, Niroshan Dickwella, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dilruwan Perera, Akila Dananjaya, Rangana Herath, Suranga Lakmal.

Our Prediction

The upcoming match could be the decider of this test series and we could see both teams coming out all guns blazing here; while the match could swing either way, we feel that the hosts have an upper hand to win.
