Sri Lanka is the official host of the Asia Cup 2022. It would be a great delight for the people of Sri Lanka to watch their men’s cricket team winning and lifting the trophy. Given the recent economic tragedies on the island, cricket could be the ideal retreat for the Lankans. However, their campaign got off to a shaky start as they lost the inaugural game to Afghanistan by 8 Wickets after setting a below-average target of 106.

Sri Lanka has a balanced side as well. The Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka has been in great form recently. Their youngsters are doing quite well. All they lack is consistency. Hence, Sri Lanka will try to find a rhythm from the early phase of the tournament.  

Bangladesh is led by the old fox Shakib Al Hassan. Seasoned campaigners like Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, and Mustafizur Rahman are global superstars. The current blend of young blood and experienced campaigners makes Bangladesh a strong contender for the Asia Cup 2022. You can expect a close game.

Let us now focus on the teams and their performances and analyze stats to predict the winner.

Sri Lanka Vs Bangladesh Asia Cup 2022 Today Match Prediction, Betting Tips & Pitch Report

Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh is a big game for Group B teams. Group B in the Asia Cup 2022 is the group of death. Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan - three strong teams will fight for a place in the semi-finals. From that perspective, the 5th match will determine the fate of Group B in a way.

Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have faced each other on 12 occasions in the T20 format. Out of these 12 matches, Sri Lanka won 8 and Bangladesh won 4. In the Asia Cup, Sri Lanka played against Bangladesh 14 times. Bangladesh managed to score victory on 3 occasions while Sri Lanka won 11 matches.

However, Bangladesh has slowly yet steadily emerged as a strong side. Experienced players like Shakib Al Hasan always add an X-factor to your team. Plus, his arm balls are as effective as his loopy-flighted deliveries. He will be the determining factor under the UAE conditions. 

Wanindu Hasaranga and Bhanuka Rajapaksa have proved what they can do in the last IPL. They are genuine match-winners. Kushal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka are players who can be dangerous on their days.

Thus, we can expect a tight game between the two subcontinental teams who are also strong contenders of winning the title.

Pitch Stats and Conditions

An excellent batting surface is available at the Dubai International Cricket Ground which delivers consistent bounce and carry. Pacers will get some assistance from the pitch in the first phase of the match.

The bowling team should make use of the freshness of the pitch in the powerplays. Batting second is comparatively easier in Dubai. The dew always makes it difficult for the bowling team to grip the ball in the second innings. 

On this field, the average first innings total has been 141. To challenge the team chasing the score, teams batting first must score more than 160 runs. Teams here, usually enjoy great success batting second. In 2021, 13 T20 matches were held at this venue out of which 12 were won by teams batting second.

Sri Lanka and Bangladesh both have solid teams at the moment. The fine blend of experience and young blood shall make this match exciting. Not to mention, the tactical battle between Shakib Al Hasan and Dasun Shanaka is going to be a treat to watch.

However, both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are struggling to find consistency at the highest level. Bangladesh had a nightmarish run in their last T20 World Championship campaign. They must leave the burden in the past and start things afresh.

Given past records, stats, player performances, and ability to perform in mega events, we predict Sri Lanka to win the game. However, toss plays a big part in close games and the team winning the toss in this match will be the one to be rooted for that day. 

Sri Lanka Vs Bangladesh Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss will bowl first. Due to the fact that this game will take place at night (7.30 pm IST), dew may be a factor making it more difficult for bowlers to grip the ball. Moreover, on a live, fresh surface, pace bowlers should enjoy some early bounce.
