Bangladesh came agonisingly close to beating Sri Lanka in the 1st T20 International (T20I) in Chittagong, with Anamul Haque single-handedly leading the way.


The hosts will look to turn their fortunes around and look to press for their maiden win in this series. There have been some positives, especially in the first Innings of the second Test and in the first T20 match.


Sri Lanka, on the other hand will try to gather some more momentum especially with tougher challenges lying in store in the forthcoming months. Their bowling has looked uninspiring on this tour and they should look to bowl tidier lines and contain the flow of runs.
