BAN vs SL 2nd Test Live Score, Prediction & Preview

BAN vs SL 2nd Test: While the world is talking about the Indian Premier League, red-ball cricket fans were treated to some fascinating world-class cricket when Bangladesh took on Sri Lanka in the first Test last week. Three low-scoring innings & one dominating inning resulted in a match-winning effort from the hosts. There comes another thrilling fixture when Bangladesh locking horns with Sri Lanka in the second Test.

Bangladesh looked like a team of inexperienced players but this group of young lads knew the art of Test cricket & they outclassed the experienced Sri Lankan team to win this fixture. We will expect a similar kind of show in Chattogram, but wait Lankas will try their best to bounce back & win this clash to return to winning ways. Who will win this effort is what will be known as the time passes.


Bangladesh Preview:

Following a debut for Nahid Rana in Sylhet, where the right-arm medium-fast bowler impressed with five wickets albeit conceding over 200 runs, Bangladesh will be keen to retain their momentum in the second Test. However, the focus will be on improving their batting performance, especially after a solitary half-century in the opening Test. With the pitch expected to favor spin, Bangladesh will rely on their spinners, including Mehidy Hasan Miraz, who claimed a four-wicket haul in the previous game, to make an impact. Shoriful Islam will look to replicate his white-ball form in the Test arena, providing support with the ball.

Predicted Playing XI for Bangladesh: Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Zakir Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Mominul Haque, Taijul Islam, Shahadat Hossain, Litton Das (wk), Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Shoriful Islam, Khaled Ahmed, Nahid Rana

Key Players for Bangladesh: Top Batsman: Taijul Islam Top Bowler: Khaled Ahmed

Sri Lanka Preview:

With a commanding victory in Sylhet, Sri Lanka will aim for consistency as they head into the second Test. However, they will be without Kasun Rajitha due to injury, with Asitha Fernando likely to replace him. The middle-order duo of Dhananjaya de Silva and Kamindu Mendis, both centurions in the previous game, will be crucial for Sri Lanka’s batting. Opener Dimuth Karunaratne’s experience and form will be vital, especially on a pitch expected to offer assistance to spinners.

Predicted Playing XI for Sri Lanka: Nishan Madushka, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Mendis (wk), Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva (c), Kamindu Mendis, Prabath Jayasuriya, Asitha Fernando, Vishwa Fernando, Lahiru Kumara

Key Players for Sri Lanka: Top Batsman: Dhananjaya de Silva Top Bowler: Vishwa Fernando


With typical Chattogram conditions expected, the weather forecast indicates no rain but high humidity levels throughout the Test. The pitch, known for its turning nature, will offer assistance to spinners from the outset. Batsmen will look to capitalize on the early conditions, aiming for a total above 350, while bowlers will anticipate increasing assistance from the surface as the game progresses.

Toss: To Bat

Given the pitch’s propensity to favor spin and the expectation of increasing assistance for bowlers, both captains are likely to opt for batting first.

BAN vs SL 2nd Test Winning Prediction

While Bangladesh displayed resilience in the previous Test, Sri Lanka’s experience and consistency make them the favorites for the second Test. Expecting a closely contested match, our prediction favors Sri Lanka to emerge victorious once again, maintaining their dominance in the series.

We are backing Sri Lanka to win!
