He summed up 908 runs in 30 ODI matches, which is a great milestone. His achieved his best scores as 117 and he tried to score around 30 runs with a strike rate of 80. He will be used as a batting pillar who will support other hitters to give them energy.

Let’s examine the SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) of both teams:

Team Bangladesh Strengths

Bangladesh have one of the best spin bowling group in one-day cricket right now. Since the World Cup in 2019, they have had the best bowling average for spinners (27.22) among all teams playing in the Asia Cup. Their economy rate (4.60) and strike rate (35.4) records are much better than other Asian teams.

Players like Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan Miraz are very talented. They can consistently get batters out and also keep the score of rivals as low as possible. Their participation will be crucial for off-spinner Mahedi Hasan, who will be playing his 50th game today. They are a team that knows how to have fun while playing ODI matches. Bangladesh has trained experts who have repeatedly spoken up for their side. Shakib Al Hasan is still considered the best allrounder in the world. Mushfiqur Rahim adds many efforts to make his team win. Mustafizur Rahman will be in charge of leading the fast bowling attack with his smart and different ways of bowling. Mehidy Hasan Miraz is expected to play a big role in the competition.

Team Bangladesh Weaknesses 

Ebadot Hossain got hurt at a bad time for Bangladesh. He was really starting to excel in his role as the speed leader. His long bowling style was difficult for many players to deal with. Tamim Iqbal not being there also means they will miss out on his help at the top of the team. Bangladesh mostly depends on their older leaders to provide support for them. It could prove to be their success in this competition with many countries.

Opportunities For Team Bangladesh

Bangladesh has been doing well in big competitions lately. They made it to the finals in the last ODI Asia Cup, but lost a close game against India. They also reached the final of the 2012 Asia Cup, but lost a close game to Pakistan. The Tigers entered the semi-finals in the 2017 Champions Trophy. Similarly, they reached quarter-finals in the 2015 World Cup.

Nevertheless, they have never won any big competition in their entire history. The next three months will be very important for the team’s legacy. Even though Captain Shakib had a great year in 2019, he still wants to win a big trophy to make his career even better.

Threats For Team Bangladesh

Bangladesh will play against Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. This is a very competitive event, and every match is really important. They will be unable to stand against the Asian teams, Pakistan and India, who have the ability to win easily.

Both games are very important if they want to make it to the Super 4 stage. The net run rate might also be important in the game.

Team Sri Lanka Strengths

Sri Lanka has really good spin bowlers who can probably win the upcoming competition with their performances. When playing in India, Maheesh Theekshana, Dunith Wellalage, and Dhananjaya de Silva will be very good at bowling and will make the conditions hard for the other players to score runs.

Theekshana, who will be in charge of the swing division, has taken 23 wickets in 19 ODI matches played on pitches in South Asia. Wellalage has played all his one-day games in Asia and he has taken 19 wickets in 15 matches with an average economy rate of 5.18. During Asia Glass 2023, the left-handed spinner took 10 wickets in six games and finished as one of the top wicket-takers along with India’s Mohammed Siraj. Wellalage’s good form before the World Cup is a good sign for the Sri Lanka team.

Dhananjaya de Silva can also help Theekshana and Wellalage because he is a good bowler in one-day matches. The bowler has taken 44 wickets in 67 games out of 82 one-day matches, with an economy rate of 4.95.

Team Sri Lanka Weaknesses 

Sri Lanka did not choose Wanindu Hasaranga, their important player, for their team of 15 players for the ODI World Cup in 2023. Hasaranga got his hamstring hurt while playing for B-Love Kandy in the Lanka Premier League (LPL). The famous player couldn’t play in the Asia Cup in 2023 because of an injury, but it was expected that they would recover in time for the World Cup in India.

However, the 26-year-old was removed from the team because he was not fully recovered from his injury. The leg-break bowler has taken 67 wickets in 48 matches with an economy rate of 5.07 in his one-day career. Together with Wellalage and Theekshana, Hasaranga have formed an amazing spin attack for his team in the upcoming competition.

The leg spinner did really well in the Lanka Premier League (LPL 2023), getting 19 wickets in 10 matches for Kandy. Sri Lanka supporters are feeling sad because Hasaranga, is a good bowler and he won’t be playing in the important ODI game in India.

Sri Lanka won’t have Dushmantha Chameera’s services in the 2023 World Cup because he is separated from Hasaranga. Chameera hurt his muscle during a cricket tournament in Zimbabwe, where he has taken 50 wickets in 44 games. The fast runner had recovered from the injury but he hurt himself again during the LPL 2023.

Opportunities For Team Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka may do very well in the 2023 World Cup because it will be held in India. This group that won in 1996 is familiar with the conditions because the environment in both India and Sri Lanka are similar. Their World Cup record is also unique in sub-continent conditions.

In 1996, they won all their games and got the title with Ranatunga as the captain. Sri Lanka won the title by beating good teams like Australia, West Indies, India, and Britain. They had good weather to help them. The World Cup returned to Asia in 2011. This time, they played very good cricket under Kumar Sangakkara and made it to the final.

Threats For Team Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has not done well in ICC competitions since they won the T20 World Cup in 2014. Following their win in the 2014 T20 World Cup, Sri Lanka has not made it to the final rounds of any ICC events. In the upcoming competitions, Shanaka and his team will need to be strong throughout the competition in order to win the trophy.

Strong countries like India and Britain are powerful against Sri Lanka, because they include every kind of player. 11 players from Sri Lanka’s team will be making their debut in the ODI World Cup 2023. Dasun Shanaka, the team captain, will also be playing in the ODI World Cup for the very first time. Sri Lanka players have a lot of potential but it will be very difficult for them to stay calm and strong when they play against the top teams. Individual presentations won’t help them win the competition.


Looking at the past games between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, it’s obvious that Sri Lanka is better than Bangladesh. It is expected that Sri Lanka will win this match. However, Bangladesh will not be able to compete in the World Cup 2023 if they lose one more game.


As the pitch supports the batsmen so, the team who will win the toss may prefer to bat first. It is expected that Sri Lanka will win the toss
