Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka 1st Test Preview

Bangladesh faces a setback with the absence of veteran cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim, sidelined due to a thumb injury sustained during the recent ODI series. In his place, uncapped talent Towhid Hridoy has been named, alongside the inclusion of Litton Das, who returns to the squad after being dropped in the last ODI.


Meanwhile, Sri Lanka encounters their own challenges as star all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga, who came out of retirement, faces suspension by the ICC. This has led to the addition of uncapped spinner Nishan Peiris and the recall of Lahiru Kumara to bolster the squad.
