Match 5 , Asia Cup T20 , 2016
Bangladesh vs Srilanka
After the defeat against India in the first match Bangladesh did manage to pull things up against UAE. But still, the job wasn’t done smoothly. Bangladesh suffered batting woes as most of the batsmen couldn’t justify their name. If UAE fielder could take the two early catches in the fifth over things would’ve been much different. Bangladesh is looking to improve their batting performance but it seems like it will take a bit of time.
Bangladesh’s opponent for their third match is Sri Lanka. In 2014 when Sri Lanka came to Bangladesh for playing the T20 series and Asia Cup they seemed to be physically incapable of losing. Kumara Sangakara and Mahela were in team who laid the foundation of a good score and also made the Bangladeshi bowlers suffer in the field. Bangladesh finished off two close matches in 2014 T20 series against Sri Lanka. But 2 years later Sri Lanka team doesn’t seem like physically incapable of losing.
