Sri Lanka elected to bat first in Lasith Malinga’s farewell game against Bangladesh here at the R Premadasa Stadium.

Sri Lanka’s playing XI includes six batsmen, four fast bowlers and a spinner as they look to offer a fitting farewell to Malinga--an iconic cricketer who is retiring in front of a massive home crowd. Seamer Lahiru Kumara win back a place in the playing XI, having missed the World Cup in England.

 

Teams:

Bangladesh (Playing XI): Tamim Iqbal(c), Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman

Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Dimuth Karunaratne(c), Kusal Perera(w), Avishka Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Lahiru Thirimanne, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Pradeep, Lahiru Kumara, Lasith Malinga
