T20 World Cup 2021: Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Probable XI

Topic: T20 World Cup 2021

Bangladesh to face Sri Lanka on the 15th Match of T20 World Cup 2021 at 4 pm Bangladeshi time today. 

When these two sides played in a warm-up 11 days ago, neither Bangladesh nor Sri Lanka could have predicted they'd be facing each other again so soon. But after Bangladesh's shock loss to Scotland and a withdrawn ICC press release later, they two teams have wound up in the same Super 12s group.

The two sides share several similarities. Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh and Wanindu Hasaranga of Sri Lanka both are outstanding star allrounder.Both sides have decent pace attacks.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, has a more consistent middle order, even if it hasn't clicked as well as they would have hoped so far. Kusal Perera, who has played 55 T20I innings, is expected to be Sri Lanka's most experienced batter; Shakib, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mahmudullah have all played more than 90 innings each
