Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Yuzvendra Chahal, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Suresh Raina, Vijay Shankar, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat
Tamim Iqbal, Mustafizur Rahman, Soumya Sarkar, Rubel Hossain, Litton Das, Mehidy Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah (c), Sabbir Rahman/Ariful Haque, Taskin Ahmed/Abu Jayed, Nazmul Islam
Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, and Dinesh Karthik have looked promising with the bat in the tournament so far while Shardul Thakur and Jaydev Unadkat have impressed with the ball. Suresh Raina can also play a key role.
Bangladesh, on the opposite side, would be eyeing on Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mustafizur Rahman for another brilliant performance.
Although rain is forecasted, there’s nothing much to worry about. R Premadasa supports batsmen more than bowlers and is expected to remain the same.
