The Asia Cup game between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka is the first of the tournament and will be played on Saturday, September 15. Latest Bangladesh v Sri Lanka betting tips & predictions for this Asia Cup opener can be found below.
Sri Lanka have been multiple winners of the Asia Cup but their recent form has left a lot to be desired.
Now, they might have beaten Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in a tri-series to win the title, but that came with its own shocks – they lost to Zimbabwe in the opener and were pummelled by Bangladesh by 163 runs in the second match before winning the remaining games to win the title.
But that was immediately followed by a crushing defeat at the hands of South Africa who win the five-match series in Sri Lanka by winning the first three games. Experimentation in the final two games allowed Sri Lanka a couple of wins but to lose a home series was a huge dent.
Bangladesh have had their own issues. That tri-series defeat v Sri Lanka was one that might not go away too easily given they had gone into the final as favourites but came back short. The good news, however, is that they are coming off a stunning series win against the Windies which should hold them in a good stead.
The big question in the lead-up to this game was Shakib al Hasan’s fitness and it looks like their best player will take his place in the side.
