Bangladesh won the toss and opted to bat first in the second ODI of the three-match series against Sri Lanka on Tuesday at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
The hosts made two changes to the playing XI of the last game. Taskin Ahmed has been overlooked to pave a way for the left-arm seamer Shoriful Islam. It’ll be marked as his first ODI.
Mosaddek Hossain also got a chance in playing XI. Mohammad Mithun, who suffered a duck in the last game, has been axed.
Shoriful played two T20Is and one test earlier and bagged two and one wickets respectively. Mosaddek, on the other hand, got into the ODI playing XI for the first time since July 2019. He represented the Tigers in 35 ODIs and scored 549 runs with two fifties.
Bangladesh now have a good chance to win this ODI series against Sri Lanka. They have never won a series against the Lions.
