BAN vs SL: Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Dream11 Prediction, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Updates for 2nd Test
BAN vs SL: The second and final Test of the two-match series will take place on Monday at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. Given that Sri Lanka has never lost a Test match in Bangladesh, the two-match series will be closely watched.
With 1122 runs scored and no winner, the opening test was a true belter, with hitters having the most fun. Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal batted brilliantly for Sri Lanka, scoring 199 and 66 runs respectively. Nayeem Hasan’s bowling has been impressive, grabbing 6 wickets for Bangladesh. Mushfiqur Rahim scored 133 and 105 runs for Bangladesh in the two games, and his performance in the series finale will be key. Bangladesh has won five of their last eight Tests in Mirpur, although given their two-game losing streak, that figure could be misleading. On Monday, another interesting matchup awaits, with both teams looking for a road win.

BAN vs SL, 2nd Test Pitch Report:
For the first two days, rain is forecast in Mirpur, but the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka Club is supposed to be batting-friendly. The pacers should create an extra bounce and swing early on to annoy the hitters. Spinners have dominated this track thus far, and that tendency is set to continue in this match.

Top Picks for BAN vs SL Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
In recent years, Dimuth Karunaratne has been in excellent form. He did not have the expected performance in the first test, scoring only 61 runs in two innings, but considering his potential, he is a fantasy team must-have.
With a fantastic 199-run inning in the first Test, Angelo Mathews had shown indications of form. He might counted on to score more runs in this game, given his present form.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
In the first test, Shakib Al Hasan impressed as an all-rounder. He’s a valuable addition to your fantasy team, with the pitch likely to favour him and his great bowling prowess simply sweetening the deal.
After being undone by Shakib, Dhananjaya de Silva failed to perform in the first Test. He is, however, a gifted hitter with good off-break bowling skills, making him an excellent candidate for the second test, when spinners have turn.
Top Picks – Bowlers
In the first test, Taijul Islam was Bangladesh’s leading wicket-taker, and his ability to set up batsmen and trap them in cages was well-known. In his previous game, he also took 5 wickets.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
Mushfiqur Rahim has been Bangladesh’s leading batsman in the first test, with 105 runs. Rahim should anticipate more of the same with form on his side, also making him a popular choice to Dream11 fantasy teams.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for BAN vs SL Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Mushfiqur Rahim, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews (c), Tamim Iqbal, Dimuth Karunaratne, Dinesh Chandimal, Oshada Fernando, Shakib Al Hasan (vc), Taijul Islam, Asitha Fernando, Lasith Embuldeniya.
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for BAN vs SL Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Mushfiqur Rahim (vc), Kusal Mendis, Liton Das, Angelo Mathews, Tamim Iqbal (c), Dinesh Chandimal, Shakib Al Hasan, Dhananjaya de Silva, Taijul Islam, Asitha Fernando, Kasun Rajitha.
BAN vs SL Risky Captaincy Choices:
Dimuth Karunaratne failed to live up to expectations in the first test. Also hitting only 61 runs in the second innings, including a half-century. Given his abilities, he may be a risky fantasy selection.
Lasith Embuldeniya’s orthodox bowling has been the talk of the town throughout his career, with the thin turn putting up regular performances. Therefore, he is likely to have the most fun given the turn available on the surface.
Player you should avoid:
Mominul Haque showed flashes of his attacking potential in the previous game, but he failed terribly, scoring only two runs; his present form is concerning for the Bangladesh team.
