Bangladesh is going through a dream run. After successful limited over campaigns in their home ground, a famous victory in their 100th Test and the confidence transferred from Tests into limited overs cricket against Sri Lanka in their backyard is worthy of an appreciation.
By winning the first One Day match at Dambulla, Bangladesh are aiming to win the three match series after the second match was intervened by the unpredictable Sri Lankan weather.
On the other side, things are not looking good for the hosts particularly after losing the second Test by four wickets and the first One Day by 90 runs. They could have felt safe in the second ODI after posting a target of 311 and knowing that no team has won a 50 over game in Sri Lanka while chasing a target of over 300 but yet again things went against them as rain intervened and the match ended without any result.
With Bangladesh leading the three match series 1-0 and the action moving to the slow and dry surface of SSC where both teams would be looking forward to give their slow bowlers a run however Mustafizur Rahman’s cutters could prove to be handy weapon as well but the there is chance of late afternoon shower on which could disrupt the progress of the match.
