Default MATCH THREAD=>Nihadas Trophy| Match #3- BD v SL|Mar 10th, 2018|19:00 Local Time, 13:30GMT|Premadasa Stadium, Colombo


Match #3


Sri Lanka1102+0.759

Bangladesh desperately need a win to stay in contention for the final. Sri Lanka already looked impressive against India in the opening match. They are 3 for 3 in this format with Haturi as their coach.

Meanwhile Bangladesh will be looking to break the streak of successive losses to SL and India. On paper, they look like a formidable team, but the execution of targets and goals does always seem to be a mountain. But there is a good sign. They registered their highest T20 total against this same SL team a few weeks ago, only to see it being chased down in commanding fashion. Their mental fortitude and self confidence have to come to the party. It's a game of chess; one you gain the upper hand, you have to run with it. Never let the opponent as much breathe properly.
That is the mindset needed. Batsmen and bowlers have to step up.

Cricbuzz's Preview:

Bangladesh had no inkling about how things could go as horribly haywire as it has since their emphatic start in the tri-nation ODI series at home, where they began with three wins - two over Zimbabwe and one over Sri Lanka. Ever since, they have lost two ODIs, one Test and three T20Is. On Thursday night, one couldn't help but empathise with skipper Mahmudullah who was sent down a barrage of questions in the post-match press conference. And, all he had to offer everyone was, "I strongly believe we have the capability to do well, it is just about that one game which will give us our momentum back, we are waiting for that moment, if we get that, you will see a different Bangladesh."

All the best to both teams

Go Tigerssssss!
