BHU Vs SLU23 Dream11 Team : Sri Lanka look to register their second win on a bounce today and take an early lead atop of the points tally.
After beginning their South Asian Games sortie in aplomb with a win over Nepal yesterday, Sri Lanka U23 will be looking to get their second win in a row today. Playing matches on successive days, the side will be looking to emerge from a gruelling schedule with a win over a way inferior Bhutan side, a match which looks set to be foregone result even before the first ball is sent down.
It’s not just the despondent quality of their opponents which sees them such outright favourites of the day but the manner in which Sri Lanka eased past Nepal yesterday as well. The first match of cricket at the South Asian Games 2019 saw Sri Lanka put their first points on the points tally with a 6 wicket win.
Stepping out needing 173 to win, despite sitting in sticky situation at one end, Sri Lanka upped the ante at the pinch perfect side to wipe the floor with their opposition’s bowling unit. In the end, it was a win which came about relatively easy for them as the side showed their mettle with the bat, seeing them step into today’s contest upbeat and radiant.
The set of events which transpired yesterday are only bound to make things even more cumbersome for Bhutan for today’s contest, a side which couldn’t have augured for a worse tie to begin their outing in the games. The side are no way near to Sri Lanka and could up being little else than pushovers today, a match Sri Lanka are set to dominate and further hammer their place down in first position.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Although the first match of the games played over here saw Sri Lanka chase down a healthy target with ease as they cruised to a win, with these being the second match of the day to be played here, the wicket is bound to wane. It’s a surface where the team winning the toss will be looking to come out and bat first before the spinners come into effect with strokeplay becoming a tiresome task.

BHU Vs SLU23 Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
After scoring 46 runs for his side yesterday. Sri Lanka U23’s Nishan Madushka was always going to be an instant selection for us this one. It’s not only down to his resplendent display with the bat but also the escalated role he’ll be holding behind the wickets, one which will see him come up with a slew of points today.
BHU Vs SLU23 Dream11 Batsmen
A main reason for him scoring 46 runs in that contest was due to Shammu Ashan with the batter coming off with a match winning effort of 72 runs in 44 balls. It was a succulent effort by him, one which saw him not only dissect but also cut short Nepal’s chances of winning the match to make the player an instant selection for the day.
With 206 runs in 12 matches, Pathum Nissanka is brought in as well by us whilst from the other side of the docket, Snam Tobgay is being made our sole selection.
BHU Vs SLU23 Dream11 All-Rounders
We compensate for the picks from Bhutan in this facet of our Dream 11 with us opting for an entire trio of selection from the side for this imminent contest. We begin with Jigme Singye who has 83 runs and 7 matches in the T20 arena, partnering him alongside Thinley Jamtsho with the player having contributed 55 runs and 7 wickets in the same period.
Another player capable of incorporating his traits in both the segments of the game is Tenzin Wangchuk with the player having snagged 53 runs and 4 wickets in 6 matches to see him round off the picks from the side. Elsewhere with the two wickets in the foregone encounter, Kamindu Mendis will be our lone selection from Sri Lanka for this one.
Given Bhutan’s languishing batting unit and Sri Lanka’s ability to pick up wickets at crucial junctures, our entire bowling order is constituted with picks from Sri Lanka. Asitha Fernando is our first pick with the player showing yesterday why he’s held in such reverence in Sri Lanka yesterday with an astute brand of line and length to leave Nepal in angst.
Kavisha Anjula came up with the one wicket along with sending down a restrictive brand of bowling as well to see him come in as well along with Duvindu Tillekaratne to complete our picks from the side for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kamindu is our captain for the day while Ashan is our vice-captain.
