Bangladesh is all set to host Sri Lanka for the three-match One Day International (ODI) series, starting from May 23. Amid the COVID-19 situation, all three games will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
Both the teams haven’t done well in the recent past. While the home team has lost their last ODI leg against New Zealand by 0-3, the Lankans too faced a complete whitewash in the three-match series against West Indies.
Not to mention, last month, Sri Lanka had hosted Bangladesh for the two-match Test series, where the hosts had managed to win the leg by 1-0.
For Sri Lanka, Kusal Perera has been handed over the role of captaincy in place of Dimuth Karunaratne. Senior lads Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, and Lahiru Thirimanne have been dropped from the squad.
When it comes to Bangladesh, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and paceman Mustafizur Rahman have returned to the national squad after recently featuring in the now-postponed Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
