The Match 5 between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will take place at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on Thursday, 1 September 2022. Keep reading to find out Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh Match 5 Match Prediction.
Sri Lanka had a forgettable start to their campaign in the tournament. They went down against Afghanistan in the opening encounter in which the opposition absolutely crushed them. Courtesy of that heavy defeat, their net run rate plunged to -5.176. Had Bangladesh beaten Afghanistan, Sri Lanka would have needed to beat Bangladesh by a huge margin to qualify for the Super Four round.
However, Afghanistan got the better of Bangladesh too and became the first team to qualify for the next round from this group. The next game between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh becomes a knockout now. Both teams would be looking to improve on the below par performance they put in their respective first game against Afghanistan.
It was a no show from any department from Sri Lanka in their last game. Despite that heavy defeat, they had put in their best possible XI. So, there is a good chance they would stick to the same XI.
The batting faltered in the last game that led to a defeat. Bangladesh might want to strengthen themselves in that area. So we could see a change in the line-up.
