Click here to check offers on Mobile

It’s first test match and Bangladesh will be ready to face Sri-Lanka at Galle. And we should remember that Bangladesh side has improved a lot in last few years with some talented players have joined the side.

Sri-Lanka will be having new Captain Rangana Herath as Angelo Mathews is injured. Gunaratne and Dickwella has been included in the test squad due to their recent performances but Kusal Perera and Kaushal Silva could not make it due to their poor form. Malinda Pushpakumara added to the squad and is very good bowler (spin) but he will play or not the question remains as their are many bowlers who are more experienced than him like Dilruwan Perera and Lakshan Sandakan.

Mustafizur Rahman is up and fit as he struggled during test series against India due to injuries and bowling attach will be more powerful with Shakib, Mehedi Hasan, Taskin and Rubel. Its a subcontinent pitch and it supports spin so match would be interesting and both the teams are sort of equal with Sri Lanka leading lil bit due to Herath. But Bangladesh has Strong bowling lineup as well… Phewww… I hope it gets as interesting as India Aussie match. Liton Das will be the wicket keeper for Bangladesh as Mushfiqur Rahim has given up the WK and will be playing as specialist batsman. Imrul Kayes is out due to injury but he may be available for 2nd test though it is not sure as injury is not so series. Choice to be made between Mahmudullah and Sabbir Rahman.

Bangladesh squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Taijul Islam, Mehedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mosaddek Hossain, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Subashis Roy, Rubel Hossain.

Once again its Morgan who has proved from his performance why he is very important. As a replacement Billings has been keen to prove his mettle and busy in doing it but he has to do more than just a half century to cement his place in the playing 11. Apart from Morgan, Stokes made 55 runs and Ali made unbeaten 31 runs. Woakes and Plunkett took 4-4 wickets to wrap up the WI sides. But WI did left an imprint with Jason Mohammed and Carter’s performance. Gabriel and Nurse took 2-2 wickets.

Both the teams would likely to go unchanged but in WI Rovman Powell might might get a chance to feature and he should as he is really a talent.

Buttler was a disappointment in the first match and it has been a while we have not seen his bat speaking and this could be the match or it may happen that Bairstow gets a chance to perform.

England Probable 11: Buttler (wk), Roy, Billings, Root, Morgan, Stokes, Ali, Plunkett, Woakes, Finn, Rashid.

Ireland won 1st match by 85 runs with a brilliant knock by Porterfield. It’s been a while he was struggling with his form and this is the best way to find a form. Ireland put a score of 270 runs with some quick runs by Brien Brother and in response UAE got out on just 185 runs. Dockrell from Ireland took 3 wickets supported by Chase and Mcbrine who took 2-2 wickets. ED Joyce expected to play in 2nd match and may replace Balbirnie

Zahoor Khan was the best performer from UAE, he picked up  6 wickets, Rohan Mustafa who showed all rounder performance picked up 1 wicket and made 43 runs  and Mohammad Naveed started really well with bowling  and took early two wickets of Ireland. The most talented and experienced player of UAE Shaiman Anwar did not perform but he could return to his form on Saturday where UAE will be needing his experience to win the match to equal the three match series with 1-1. Raza and Haider went very expensive in their spells with no success. Lots of will be expected from Anwar, Raza and Usman who failed to perform in the 1st match. M Qasim may get a chance to play who is expected to replace Rameez Shahzad

New Zealand vs South Africa (5th ODI)

It’s the 5th one day international match and a decider after a thrilling innings by Martin Guptill in the last match. Final match is in Auckland, Eden Park and pitch seems to be supporting the spinners but its a true wicket at the start it will surely support pacers.

Andile Phehlukway injured in the last match but he is fit and can replace Morris who did not perform as expected in last two matches and may be Tabraiz Shamsi get a chance to play. David Miller and JP Duminy could not help to built innings which put undue pressure on first four batsmen. Finally in the series we saw runs coming out of Faf’s bat and this match may be the big one for him as he hasn’t yet performed. ABD superb as always but its finals and one man can not win.

With Guptill superb 180, Taylor made 66 runs and once again he showed why he is one of the best. Jeetan Patel threw a twist to the match by taking 2 wickets and Eden Park’s pitch surely going to support his bowling, Santner and Neesham as usual contributed with the ball by taking 1 wicket each. Southee was very expensive in last few matches though he has been taking wicket in every match in the series.Ferguson may get a chance to replace either Patel or Southee

It’s an Eliminator match and winner will find their way to the Final of PSL Season 2. Quetta Gladiators has already qualified for the finals and the clash for the champion is on Sunday. This season seems to be the replica of 1st season Gladiators defeating Zalmi last season and in this season as well. Zalmi would like to create a new history here.

Dawid Malan and M. Hafeez had some really good time in last match which bring them back to the form and the win for their team as well. Shahid Afridi was on fire with his bat and but could not do well in the whole season with the ball. Kamran Akmal has score two half centuries and he has to stay their for a while to get the game going. Samuels is struggling with his form and form for such a good player should not be a challenge to find. Wahab Riaz was the pick of the bowler and took 3 wickets and that too Major One. Iftikhar Ahmed might get a chance to play in place of Haris Sohail and also in last match with Karachi Kings Iftikhar Ahmed picked up two wickets as well. Chris Jordan did not contribute either with a ball or bat. Samit Patel might get a chance in place of Samuels or Jordan as he is an All-rounder.

With unchanged team Dolphins will be playing their 5 ODI on Friday against Warriors. So far this tournament has been good for the Dolphins, they have won 3 out of 4 matches. Keshav has already left to join New Zealand Test Team. Muthusamy who replaced Engelbrecht in the last match performed brilliantly and chipped 2 wickets with good economy rate, Jaarsveld and Wyk started good as an openers and built 100 runs partnership with Jaarsveld half century and from last couple of matches we are seeing runs coming from Jaarsveld and Wyk bat as well. Zondo played nice hands and pushed the score towards victory. With Nipper taking maximum 4 wickets followed by Muthusamy and Subrayen 2-2 wickets.

This is Warriors 4th match and out of 3 they have won only 1 and that too by the all -round performance of JJ Smuts, so it was most awaited performance from the talented player. Harmer and Ingram took 2-2 wickets each and none of the players scored 50 or more runs and highest being 33 runs by JJ Smuts.

Titans vs Knights, its their 4th match and seems Titans is all over the game. Henry Davids, who is performing in every match seems to be enjoying his time either with the bat or ball. His opening pair Vandiar also have been in great touch hitting 150+ in a match. Kuhn and A Morkel doing their part with bat as and when required.  Dala and Hawkins replaced M. Morkel and Mahlokwana and seems it done a trick for Titans as both took 3-3 wickets.

Morne Morkel joined the SA test Squad against New Zealand and Theunis De Bruyn is included also as ABD opted out of test cricket for most of 2017.

Cape Cobras vs Highveld Lions (MODC)

Click here to check offers on Mobile

Its Cape Cobras 5th match and they have won 2 lost 2 in the tournament. So far Cobras seems the balanced side with Levi, Ramela, Zyl, Ontong and Vilas on batting side and bowling being taken care by Kleinveldt, Williams, Piedt and sometimes Mgijima.  In last match Qwabe replaced Moreki but he did not perform well and went expensive. Jason Smith did not play in last match and replaced by Peterson but could not exploit the chance may make way for Jason Smith back to the team.

Lions journey so far not been so great as they have won only one match but with the likes of Reeza Hendricks, Dussen, Roux, Beuran Hendricks and Fortuin  they can come back hard any time.

Reeza’s bat is quiet from last two matches after hitting a century in first match. Dominic Hendricks and Mulder who replaced Cook and Bavuma in last match did not perform and this might get Bavuma back to the team as Bavuma is the only player who has made half century in his last match and after Reeza Hendricks’ century
