Bangladesh v Sri Lanka 3rd ODI Betting Tips & Predictions

Bangladesh took an unassailable lead in their One Day International series against Bangladesh, and they will be looking to complete a whitewash when they lock horns for the third and final time on Friday.

The second ODI was not even close. Bangladesh won the toss and opted to bat first. They were unable to post a massive total as they were bowled out for 246 with Mushfiqur Rahim top-scoring with 125, while Mahmudullah was the only other player to score any runs of note with 41.

By bowling Bangladesh out for under 250, you would assume that Sri Lanka were in control of the game. Both Dushmantha Chameera and Lakshan Sandakan collected three wickets apiece as it looked like the tourists were set to level the series.

That didn’t end up being the case, as Sri Lanka slumped to 141-9 in an innings that was reduced to 40 overs because of rain.

The rain didn’t really affect the outcome of this game, because Sri Lanka were negative from the off and never looked like reaching their total.

Opener Danushka Gunathilaka top-scored for Sri Lanka with 24, and that shows just how poor the tourists were. Eight of 11 players managed to get into double figures, but not one single player managed to post a big score.

Confidence in the Sri Lanka camp is very low, and I am backing Bangladesh to complete a whitewash victory in the third game.

Rahim was clearly the pick of the Bangladesh batsmen with his 125, but I am backing a player who failed miserably in the second DI to find his form and score some big runs. Shakib Al Hasan came in a number three and was removed for a three-ball duck, but I am tipping him to bounce back with an astute innings.

Surely Sri Lanka cannot be as poor as they were on Tuesday. I cannot see them winning the game, but I feel that at least one player will break the 30-run barrier. I am backing skipper Kusal Perera to prove he is capable of leading the batting attack by scoring the most runs for the tourists.
