Top Picks for SL vs BAN Dream11 Prediction and Fantasy Cricket Tips:
After successive failures in the first two games, Kusal Perera got a fluent 33 off 24 balls against Netherlands. The left-handed wicket-keeper batsman is someone who can blast away at the top and can be backed to come good.
Wanindu Hasaranga has bowled beautifully in this tournament. The leg-spinning all-rounder has picked up six wickets at an economy of 4.09. He has batted only once and he smashed 71 off 47 balls. Thus, he will be a top captaincy choice.
Maheesh Theekshana is in magnificent form with the ball and has been super impressive. The 21-year-old Sri Lankan spinner has taken eight wickets in just three games and has a strike-rate of 6.7 in this T20 World Cup. Thus, he might be a solid pick as vice-captain.
Lahiru Kumara has been bowling really well in this tournament. The 24-year-old fast bowler has picked up seven wickets in three games and has an economy rate of 3.61.
Mahmudullah seems to be in good touch with the bat. The Bangladesh skipper has scored 90 runs in three games and has a strike-rate of 150.00 in this tournament.
Shakib Al Hasan will be a captaincy favourite. The left-handed all-rounder has had a huge impact with both bat and ball. He has amassed 108 runs in three games and has returned with nine wickets at an economy rate of 4.50.
Mahedi Hasan is in good form with the ball and has played a vital role for Bangladesh. The off-spinner has taken five wickets at an economy rate of 4.41. He can be handy with the bat too.
Mustafizur Rahman has been in top form with the ball. The Bangladesh left-arm fast bowler has 24 wickets to his name from 14 T20Is in 2021. He has taken six wickets in this tournament.
Mohammad Saifuddin could be a utility option. He has four wickets to his name and has conceded runs at an economy rate of 5.58. He can also tonk it around with the bat lower down the order.
