Fantasy Cricket Tips: Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, 1st T20I Match, Feb 15, 2018

Injuries have claimed the captains of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Angelo Mathews, who leads the Sri Lankans, is facing a resurgence of his old hamstring injury and has been ruled out of the T20I series altogether while Shakib Al Hasan, who was handed the captaincy ahead of the test series, will not be available for the first T20I slated for 15 February in Dhaka. However, he will be joining the team for the second T20I.

With Bangladesh and Sri Lanka T20I round the corner, it is time to get your Fantasy Cricket team ready. Consider the below tips for fantasy cricket betting:

  • Player to watch out for from the Bangladesh side is Ariful Haque. He is an uncapped player and was quite impressive during the Bangladesh Premier League in 2017. He bats down the order and is considered a run-getter.

  • Dinesh Chandimal will be leading the Sri Lankan side, so you can choose him as your Fantasy Cricket team captain. But remember, Chandimal has not played a T20I match for the last one year

  • Bangladesh has completely revamped its squad for the T20I against Sri Lanka, with five players making their debut. Tamim Iqbal, the opener, and Mustafizur Rahman, the medium pacer, have been recalled.

  • Veteran Jeevan Mendis has found a place in the Sri Lankan squad, but otherwise the team is filled with young and inexperienced players, including the seamers Asitha Fernando and Shehan Madushanka
