Sri Lanka is the thorn in Bangladesh’s ‘Super Four’ path

Bangladesh completed the optional practice on the day before the match against Sri Lanka. On this day, Sabbir Rahman-Parvez Hossain Imran sweated with the bat for a long time at the ICC academy ground. Nasum Ahmed and Ebadat Hossain were seen playing against them.

Mehdi Hasan Miraj first batted with Sabbir. After that, Nasum batted in partnership with Emon. One similarity among the players who came to practice on Wednesday is that none of them played in the first match against Afghanistan.

When Nasum was batting towards the end, team director Khaled Mahmood Sujan emerged as the bowler. Apart from this, pace bowling coach Alan Donald was seen giving various suggestions to Ebadat about bowling. On the net, Ebadat was seen trying something new. There is no pair of wide yorkers in this format to bully any batter. Ibadat also tried that. He was shown the line length by Sreedharan Sriram, the head coach in the technical director’s shell, and Donald, the pace bowling coach.

In the first match against Afghanistan, the bowling of Mustafizur Rahman and Mohammad Saifuddin did not satisfy the team. These two overs have taken away the match. Ibadat could be seen as a replacement for one of the two in the XI against Sri Lanka.

There may also be changes in the opening pair. In this case, Enamul Haq Bijay’s forehead may burn. Sabbir can be seen opening with Naeem Sheikh. To go to the second round, Bangladesh has no choice but to win. Afghanistan has already confirmed going to the Super Four by winning two consecutive matches. Bangladesh will go to the second round as the second team in ‘B’ group if they win against Sri Lanka.

As a result, considering the importance of the match, Bangladesh will enter the field with the best XI. Experiments may also be conducted.

In the press conference before the match, the team director Sujan indicated that, ‘The variety he has in bowling, maybe not many of our pacers. Maybe that variety is not working or he is not able to implement it. Something is happening. It is very worrying that in the last 15-16 matches, Mustafiz is not getting wickets like that, the economy rate is also not good. But there is no such thing as auto choice.’

Bangladesh can be somewhat independent as the opponent is Sri Lanka. Bangladesh have won 4 of the 12 T20Is against Sri Lanka so far. The Tigers have lost the remaining 8. However, the 4 matches that were won were after 2016. As a result, Bangladesh can breathe a sigh of relief. Mushfiqur Rahim can be Bangladesh’s trump card in this match. Batting stats suggest that this wicketkeeper batsman’s favorite opponent is Sri Lanka. He played 10 T20 matches against them and scored 296 runs at 42.28. The career best innings of 72 runs is also against these Lankans.

Meanwhile, two Lankan spinners Wanindu Hasaranga and Mahish Thikshana can be a cause of concern for Bangladesh. Apart from this, Kushal Mendis, who is on fire with the bat, can also make Shakib Al Hasan’s team think. If you want to win against the Lankans, you have to keep a bird’s eye on them.
