The Likely XI from this Sri Lankan Squad-
1.  Dhananjaya De Silva (Averages-49.80 batting at No.1, 50s-3 )
2.  Danushka Gunathilika (Averages-42.29 batting at No.2,100s-1 50s-6)
3.  Niroshan Dickwella (Wicket-Keeper)(Averages-44.75 batting at No.3, 50s-2)
4.  Kusal Mendis (Averages-55.66 batting at No.4)
5.  Upul Tharanga 
6.  Dinesh Chandimal (Capt.)(Averages-42.85 batting at No.6)
7.  Thisara Perera
8.  Akila Dananjaya
9.  Shehan Madushanka (Debut)(Swing and Seam bowler and can bowl 140+ Kmph but Average-137-138Kmph)(Has many variations the slower ball which is delivered around 120kmph) 
10. Nuwan Pradeep
11. Lakshan Sandakan

Bench-
12. Suranga Lakmal 
13. Dushmantha Chameera
14. Wanindu Hasaranga
15. Asela Gunaratne

  • A slight niggle for Nuwan Pradeep means Shehan Madushanka/Dushmantha Chameera also stands a chance of playing.
  • But With Suranga Lakmal being not among the Wicket-Takers could pave way for a Young Raw-Pace duo to hurry the Bangladesh Batsman.
  • Also considering Bangladesh batsman who is better than Zimbabwe players dismantled both Suranga Lakmal and Nuwan Pradeep for nearly 7 runs an over in the previous match.   
  • With Kusal Perera probably unavailable with a side strain with a side strain, Danushka Gunathilaka is likely to come into the XI.

Pitch and conditions

The weather in Mirpur is expected to be fine on Thursday, with temperatures only reaching the low 20-degree Celsius range. With pitches having become slower, lower and trickier to bat on through the tournament, batting first may be the preferred option.

A bright and sunny day expected in Dhaka with a full game expected to take place. All matches of the tri-series are being played on the same set of pitches and that means they are not getting enough time to rejuvenate with quick turnaround between games. With pitches tiring, the batsmen will also have to work hard for their runs. In the last game, the pitch had slowed down considerably. A similar track could be expected.

Still SL is last in Table and critical to have another win. To have any chance, should use in-depth batting line up using all all-rounders since SL blowing is toothless. My top batting order: Openers ND / TP for 1st PP; UT, Danush, KM Dhana de S for 2nd PP; Chandi, Asela & the rest (Shehan, Pradeep, Sandakan) for 3rd PP. Undoubtedly, TP is the current top SL batsman and should fill KJP role with a good rotator, ND for 1st PP to set the foundation. 2nd PP should be handled with good strike rate. Depending on the run rate and wickets, lower-end should be able to change into low or high gears.
