SL vs BAN, Asia Cup 2023 Match 8: Team news

Bangladesh were completely outplayed by Pakistan on Wednesday. They will likely re-shuffle their pack to strengthen their batting as they look to bounce back. Litton Das looks likely to open as Mohammad Nain‘s partner, while Mehidy Hasan Miraz could move down to No.8 to accomodate another specialist batter.

Sri Lanka will more than likely stick with the same XI that has given them success so far in this tournament. If they beat Bangladesh, they will have accumulated the second-highest winning streak in ODI history. Dimuth Karunaratne is in a super run of form, as is Pathum Nissanka, with Kusal Perera, Dushan Hemantha, Binura Fernando and Pramod Madushan waiting in the wings.

Match prediction – Today’s Asia Cup live match

All of the form coming into this match points to Sri Lanka as the victors. Bangladesh’s fast bowling attack will give them hope of restricting Sri Lanka to a low total, but the reigning champions have the edge going into the fixture.
