BD v SL highlights today – First twenty/20 from Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka (Bangladesh) Thursday 15th February 2018. After the great victory of rocket test series, now Sri Lanka is ready to rock in the shortest format of cricket. Two t20 matches will be played between these two teams and the home team will try hard to win this series, but it will not be easy against an inform team.
Bangladesh win the toss and choose to bat first.
Mahmudullah says, It’s hard to predict the Mirpur wicket but looks like a good surface to bat on. Chandimal says We were looking to bat first as well. We can’t always control the toss. We had done in the last three-four matches and it’s not an easy thing playing in Bangladesh.
