Bangladesh cricket team has a new history. Winning today against Sri Lanka will erase the long-standing regret. The Tigers have many fond memories of Sri Lanka, one of the great powers of cricket. However, Bangladesh never won the ODI series against them.
The second ODI will start at 1pm Bangladesh time at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. Winning the series today will ensure the victory of the Tigers, as well as a new history will be made. Bangladesh won the first ODI by 33 runs.
Statistics show that Bangladesh has played 6 ODI series against Sri Lanka so far. Sri Lanka won the series. The two series remained unresolved at 1-1.
The Sri Lankans have come to play in Bangladesh without a number of experienced cricketers in the current tour. On the other hand, Bangladesh has come down with full force. Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman are back in the team. The Tigers played very well in the first ODI. So there will be nothing to be surprised if history is made by winning the series today.
Meanwhile, the rest of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), which was suspended in Corona, is being held in the United Arab Emirates. The organizers are in a tough position to keep the PSL free from coronavirus attacks. Quetta Gladiators young pacer Nasim Shah has been dropped from the tournament for violating protocol of corona resistance.
Those traveling from Pakistan to the UAE to take part in the tournament have been asked to show the results of the PCR test conducted within the previous 48 hours. The cricketers will be able to get up in the hotel where the negative is. But the report that Nasim submitted is about a week old. He was dropped for the incident by a three-member medical advisory panel formed for the PSL.
Regarding Nasim, PSL chief Babar Hamid said, “The PCB is not happy at all with the exclusion of a young fast bowler from the tournament. But if these rules are ignored, the whole tournament will be in jeopardy. Thanks to Quetta Gladiators for accepting this decision. This ensures that we all strictly agree to follow and implement the Covid Protocol. “
