Bangladesh made their life tough on Tuesday against Afghanistan. Defending a lowly 128, Bangladesh were in the game till the 16th over before Ibrahim Zadran and Najibullah Zadran broke the shackles with 39 runs in two overs to kill the opposition’s hopes.
Earlier, the batting crumbled too with Mosaddek Hossain top scoring with 48 that saved Bangladesh blushes. Batting has been a problem too for Sri Lanka as they could manage just 105 in their tournament opener against Afghanistan.
If the likes of Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammed Naim failed for Bangladesh on Tuesday, the Sri Lankan top-order consisting Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka and Pathum Nissanka made their way back in the dugout inside the first 12 balls.
While Bangladesh showed some promise in the first 16 overs against Afghanistan as far as their bowling was concerned, their Sri Lankan counterparts were lacklustre in the tournament opener. On Thursday, Bangladesh will start favourites against Sri Lanka.
Bangladesh have played Sri Lanka 12 times in T20s having won on just four occasions. Sri Lanka won eight games.
