Bangladesh put Sri Lanka bowlers on backfoot

Bangladesh put Sri Lanka bowlers on backfoot

Former captain Mushfiqur Rahim and opener Tamim Iqbal have added to Bangladesh's injury woes ahead of their first Twenty20 global against Sri Lanka in Dhaka on Thursday. Sri Lanka, led by Dinesh Chandimal, will look to continue their winning momentum and win the first T20I to get an inch closer for having the ideal tour.

The right-arm off-break bowler, who picked up 10 wickets from two Tests, has quite a lot of variations, which will come in handy in the shortest format.

Kusal Perera did not leave with the T20 players, who left the country on Monday (12). He scored a solid 49 in that game as Sri Lanka managed their first win of that series before going on to win the series.




Opener Tamim Iqbal has been ruled out with a bicep injury while regular skipper Shakib Al Hasan withdrew from the series after failing to recover in time from a finger injury.

The first Test was drawn while the second one was won by Sri Lanka by a massive 219 runs.

Sri Lanka: Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dinesh Chandimal (c), Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Thisara Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Isuru Udana, Shehan Madushanka, Amila Aponso, Kusal Mendis, Jeevan Mendis, Asitha Fernando.
