Match Prediction – BAN vs SL, 1st Test 202Match Prediction – Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, 1st test 2022 – Who Will Today’s Match?

After a month of break Bangladesh cricket team is back in the International action with a two-match Test series against Sri Lanka at their home ground. 

With significantly experienced players like Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mominul Hoque, Bangladesh will take on Sri Lanka for the first Test match at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chottogram.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will face the Tigers with a fairly inexperienced squad packed with young players.

This will be an interesting match as both teams will be eying for the win and to get themselves a better place in the World Test Championship points table. 

Head To Head Record

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have played 22 Test matches against each other in which Sri Lanka have won 17 matches and Bangladesh have won only one. 

In their last 5 meetings, Sri Lanka is also leading in the winning numbers with 2 wins.

Who will win today’s match?

According to their recent match performances and home records, Bangladesh have the highest possibility of winning this match.

Bangladesh can be very aggressive at home and their recent history indicates the same as they have won against mighty Australia, New Zealand, and England. But the only win against Sri Lanka came at Sri Lanka in 2017. 

Bangladesh have developed a lot in the Tests and their recent win against New Zealand in New Zealand is the proof. The experience of veterans like Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mushfiqur Rahim will be the key to performing well in this match.  

On the other hand, Sri Lanka lacks the experience in both batting and bowling lineup as most of their players are quite new to the Test arena. Dimuth Karunaratne and Dinesh Chandimal along with Angelo Mathews are the only experienced players in the squad. 

There is no one who can lead from the front in their bowling innings now that Suranga Lakmal has retired after the India series. 

The pitch will likely be in favor of the spinners and the Tigers will be ahead of Sri Lanka in this department because of Shakib Al Hasan’s vast experience along with Taijul Islam. Youngstar Nayeem Hasan and allrounder Mosaddek Hossain will also be handy with the ball in this condition.   

Thus Sri Lanka might find themselves on the losing side because of the lack of experience in the bowling department.
