BAN vs SL: Bangladesh and Sri Lanka would look to get their 2019 Cricket World Cup campaigns up and running when they meet at Country Ground in Bristol on Tuesday. Both the sides have won one game each after three outings in the mega event thus far.
Sri Lanka are slightly ahead on the points table, courtesy the rained out game against Pakistan. However, Bangladesh have put in quite remarkable performances beating South Africa and fighting a close battle against the Blackcaps.
Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Team News:
- Sri Lanka pacer Nuwan Pradeep has been ruled out for at least a week after the suffering injury to his bowling hand
- Pradeep suffered a hard blow to his bowling hand on Sunday in training session
- One of J Vandersay or J Mendis is expected to take up his spot
- Avishka Fernando – who hasn’t played a single game owing to injury- is expected to get a game. Most probably, Lahiru Thirimane will sit out as he also has some discomfort in his knee
- It’s time for Bangladesh to make a couple of changes. They have suffered two consecutive losses
- Rubel Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Abu Jayed and Liton Das have remained on the bench.
- Rubel Hossain and Abu Jayed are most likely to feature amongst all four as the bowling was quite weak in the last game against England
