World Cup 2019: Bangladesh to face Sri Lanka today
New Delhi: The two Asian teams Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will meet for Match 16 at the Country Ground, Bristol on Tuesday. Both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have won just one of their first three matches they have played so far in the tournament
Bangladesh began the tournament with a bang, beating South Africa by 21 runs before going down to New Zealand and England by two wickets and 106 runs respectively.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, come into the fixture on the back of a rained out game against Pakistan at the very same venue. Having arrived early, they will hope to assess conditions as quickly as possible to get a head start.
Bangladesh look like the favourites today. They have shown the ability to score runs and pick up wickets. All they need is a little more consistency, and an ability to come out of the crucial junctures of the game.
Sri Lanka have been extremely good in World Cups and they have won all the three matches against Bangladesh. It will be interesting to see if Bangladesh will be able to turn the tables if rain does not play spoilsport at Bristol today.
The match will start at 3 pm (IST).
