Sri Lanka to focus on returning Bangladesh skipper for knockout clash

Former one-day international captain for Bangladesh and current skipper for the T20 team, Shakib Al-Hassan, has joined his squad for the crucial match on Friday (March 16) after recovering from a finger injury. An all-rounder Hassan’s return to the Bangladesh side gives an additional advantage to the team, added Hathurusingha.

However, Bangladesh’s Interim Coach, Courtney Walsh has clarified that Hassan will have to be assessed for fitness like any other returning player and will only be fielded if he is match ready.

Sri Lanka will be looking for a payoff for their last match where Bangladesh had thrashed the hosts in a spectacularly thrilling chase.
