Bangladesh bat against Sri Lanka, Shoriful makes ODI debut

Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bat first against Sri Lanka in the second match of the ongoing three-match series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Tuesday.

The host country have handed a debut to Shoriful Islam, by leaving out Taskin Ahmed and Mosaddek Hossain replaces Mohammad Mithun. Sri Lanka are unchanged.

The Tigers are currently 1-0 up in the series after winning the opening game by 33 runs that also ended their 10-match winless streak across format on Sunday.

The victory in the first match meant the hosts now have two opportunities to complete their first-ever ODI series win against the Sri Lankans, which they couldn’t do in their previous eight bilateral ODI series (six defeats, two draws).


Bangladesh: 1 Tamim Iqbal (capt), 2 Liton Das, 3 Shakib Al Hasan, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 5 Mosaddek Hossain, 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Afif Hossain, 8 Mohammad Saifuddin, 9 Mehidy Hasan, 10 Shoriful Islam, 11 Mustafizur Rahman


Sri Lanka: 1 Danushka Gunathilaka, 2 Kusal Perera (capt & wk), 3 Pathum Nissanka, 4 Kusal Mendis, 5 Dhananjaya de Silva, 6 Ashen Banara, 7 Dasun Shanaka, 8 Wanindu Hasaranga, 9 Isuru Udana, 10 Lakshan Sandakan, 11 Dushmantha Chameera
