Bangladesh A and Sri Lanka A are neck and neck in the series with one win each. They face off against one another in the third and final ODI on Saturday. While Sri Lanka ran out as comfortable winners in the first ODI, Bangladesh just about managed to level the series with a stunning 1 wicket win. Heading into the game, momentum is on the Bangladesh side although home comforts should provide some solace to the Sri Lankan. With several talented individuals taking it to the field on Saturday, an entertaining finish to a close series is on the cards.
Sri Lanka A vs Bangladesh A

A decent batting track awaits both sides with the pacers getting some help from the surface. Although it might be tough going initially, batters should bide their time in order to achieve a par score of around 240 with the spinners also coming into play as the match progresses.
There is a threat of rain with some swing on offer early on. Rain might play a factor later on which forces captains to chase on this surface.
Injuries: No injuries have been reported for this game
Sri Lanka A:
Priyamal Perera and Mohd Mithun have done well in the ODI series with 76 and 73 runs respectively. Both of them are ideally picked along with Lahiru Udana, who did get off to a start alongside Pathum Nissanka. Bangladesh youngster, Saif Hassan is due for a big knock while the likes of Afif Hossain, Ramesh Mendis and Ashan Priyanjan are also viable candidates to have in the fantasy side. Sunzamul Islam picked two wickets in the previous game as Bangladesh restricted Sri Lanka to a sub-par total. He is once again key for the tourists and is picked alongside Aponso and Abu Jayed.
1. Pathun Nissanka
2. Afif Hossain
