Asia Cup Cricket: Srilanka vs Bangladesh Pick, Prediction, and Odds
After pulling of an unexpected win, Bangla Tigers will now be facing Sri Lankan Lions on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 at 01:30 local time. This is the last game before the final of Asia Cup and may well be like a virtual semi-final. If India wins their game against Pakistan and Bangladesh win this game, Sri Lanka will be knocked out and then net run rates will come into play. However, if India loses their game against Pakistan, which is possible, and Bangladesh beat Sri Lanka, Bangladesh will be through to the finals along with Pakistan. If Sri Lanka wins here and India is not able to beat Pakistan, it will again come down to net run rates. Only way for Sri Lanka to qualify is to win here and hope that the result of India-Pakistan match favors them.

Bangladesh team is looking in phenomenal form as they chased down a target which no one expected them to do. This team has some very good bunch of players who can play match winning innings. It was a great team effort against India and they played good cricket against Pakistan too. They have some very good players like Tamim and Shakib who have performed in the past and are playing good cricket here in this tournament too. Home support will definitely add to their advantage.
Sri Lankan team is looking down and out after they've arrived from Australia. They've now lost 3 games consecutively from India, Pakistan and Australia. There is a little window of hope for Sri Lanka to qualify for the finals that that window will only be opened after Sri Lanka win this game.

It is Tigers vs. Lions and Bangla Tigers are playing very good cricket. They've been excellent in all departments of the game and outplayed India in the last game. Sri Lanka's game is going downhill with every game they are playing. Therefore, Bangladesh has a very good chance to win this game and strengthen their chances of qualification. I'll choose Bangladesh as a potential winner for this match.
» Man of the Match Prediction
With good all round display by Shakib in previous two games and excellent support by other teammates, Bangladesh snatched a victory in the game against India and if they want to repeat this again, they will be relying on Shakib Al Hasan heavily and Shakib is playing very well and hence making him my choice for Man of the Match in this game.
- Man of the Match: Shakib Al Hasan +750
