Cricket Betting Tips for 2nd game :Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka
Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, 2nd odi, Dambulla
Bangladesh will certainly be looking to the seal series in the second game at Dambulla against Sri Lanka after winning the first one by 90 runs. Sri Lanka need to produce a better all-round game against a resurgent Bangladesh side that is on a roll following their win in the 100th test at Colombo.
Sri Lanka would need to produce their A-game in the second game as the hosts are missing their key players like Kusal Perera and Angelo Matthews who were ruled out of the contest due to injuries. Upul Tharanga will be desperate to score big runs to help Sri Lanka level the series and fight for the series prize in the third game.
The first game was a big wake up call for Sri Lanka as it signaled that Bangladesh are no more pushovers in the format as they hammered the hosts by 90 runs. Dilruwan Perera, Nuwan Pradeep and Nuwan Kulasekara have been included in the squad to add experience in the bowling lineup.
Kulasekara could come in place of Lahiru Kumara who was expensive in the first game of the series. Niroshan Dickwella has fully recovered from the injury as same batting order will take the field. Kusal Mendis, Upul Tharanga and Dinesh Chandimal need to raise their game for the big game on Tuesday.
We believe Chandimal again will be the top scorer for Sri Lanka for this game with vital contribution coming in from Asela Gunaratne. Sri Lanka would be keen to bat first as the chasing was tough proposition for the side at Dambulla in the series opener.
Bangladesh will be confident of pulling a series win in Sri Lanka as the side produced a clinical performance in the first game. Tamim Iqbal scored his eight ton of his one day career as he well given good support by Shakib Al Hasan and Sabbir Rahman who chipped in with half centuries. Soumya Sarkar is our pick for the second game as left –handed will be keen to make an impression with the bat in the second game of the series.
Mehedi Hasan Miraaz and Mustafizur Rahman bowled incisive spells for Bangladesh to stem the flow of runs and dismiss Sri Lanka for 234 runs in the 45th over.Mehedi could take three wickets in this game as well as the off-spinner is turning out to be find of the season for Bangladesh since making his international debut last year in Test cricket against England.
We predict Bangladesh to win the series as Sri Lanka is missing their big players for the contest.
