Prior to 2019 - Bangladesh lost to Sri Lanka. Reaction - Okay. Big deal. In 2019 - Bangladesh lost to Sri Lanka! Reaction - What? Can you repeat? Sri Lanka won? With due regard to the Island nation, there have not been too many positives regarding their cricket. The batting has been discovered wanting with the captaincy shifting starting with one person then onto the next like a game of musical chairs while the bowling shines once in a blue moon, which, happens in what - once in every 6 months (their fantastic bowling, not the blue moon). Friday's win for the Lankans was very important in them trying to begin their next World Cup phase looking for some stepping stones. Sadly though, not bounty can be investigated that victory. The batting heaped up a huge total, yes, but thanks to only one player, Kusal Perera in particular and obviously, the Bangladeshi fielding, which was more terrible than elementary, at best. Coming to the bowling, Lahiru Kumara impressed with a 3-fer but it will presently be interesting to perceive how these players perform in the absence of Lasith Malinga. Even though he was not very highly consistent in his last few games, still, his quality instilled some confidence in the group. Give us a chance to move center to Bangladesh now. For at least a year-and-a-half, or perhaps more, we have been utilized to the Tigers mauling almost every team in the bottom 6, which is the reason that defeat in the first ODI looks bemusing. Was it tiredness after a long World Cup? Do they have issues in motivation in the absence of Mashrafe Mortaza or Shakib Al Hasan? In the event that yes, these are bad signs. The squad has been developed over the hard work of a few years and without a doubt, the absence of one or two key players cannot affect their performance. On Friday, their bowling looked sluggish, their fielding lackluster and the batting was basically overawed by the Lasith Malinga glamor. They will trust that it was only a one-off. The only question is - can they make that turnaround in only a day? A similar question to Sri Lanka would be - Can they left the 'Thank you, Mali!' celebrations? Pardon me, dear Lankan fans, but simply have the hunch that Sunday may very well not be that great, with a 1-1 arrangement status anticipated.
While that may give their top request a little more cause for positive thinking, there were nevertheless a few other concerns. In the field Bangladesh were messy, their bowlers wayward, and their batsman - Malinga yorker unfortunate casualties aside - wasteful. In summary, this looked a far cry from the team that had performed so admirably at the World Cup, and they will be started up to take this arrangement to a decider.
For Sri Lanka, much went right in the principal game. They will have been pleased to see the top request clicking into gear, and the pace and threat of seamers Lahiru Kumara and Nuwan Pradeep would also have offered expectation going forward. In any case, a lack of finishing ability at the death with the bat could have caused issues down the road for them on another, Malinga-less, night, while their continuing inability to get wickets in the center overs, nor stem the progression of runs therein, was again featured.
Tamim Iqbal got a Malinga classic to uproot his stumps in the main game, to go with a dropped catch earlier in the match. With Malinga now no longer a threat, Tamim will expectation construct a superior platform for his center request to capitalize on.
Lasith Malinga was almost a one man wrecking group on Friday night, but his performance overshadowed that of Nuwan Pradeep, who grabbed three wickets himself. Presently tasked with leading the line on his own, Pradeep needs to indicate Sri Lanka's fast-bowling legacy is in great hands
