Bangladesh VS Sri Lanka 2019 WORLD CUP MATCH: PLAYING XI, PITCH REPORT & PLAYERS UPDATE

Image result for bangladesh vs sri lanka world cup 2019

Bangladesh takes on Sri Lanka in Match 16 of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in London. Bangladesh upset South Africa by 21 runs to open their 2019 World Cup tournament. They lost by a mere two wickets to New Zealand in their second encounter of the competition.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka lost to New Zealand by 10 wickets in their World Cup opener but bounced back to trounce Afghanistan by 34 runs via the D/L method.

Bangladesh came to this World Cup with plenty of confidence after a successful tri-series tournament in Ireland where they went unbeaten. That confidence translated to their opening match win over South Africa. Bangladesh were-semi finalists in the Champions Trophy two years ago and were quarter-finalists in the 2015 Cricket World Cup so this is a team that has been improving the last couple of years.

After Sri Lanka made the Cricket World Cup final in 2007 and 2011, we saw a sharp decline in their performance. They headed to London having won just two out of their last 16 ODIs and their World Cup record in England wasn’t encouraging- just four wins in sixteen matches. Sri Lanka lost their tournament opener to New Zealand but they bounced back and got on the board with a win over Afghanistan.

Pitch report & Weather forecast

Weather Report : Weather is forecasted to be moderate rain. The daytime temperature is going to reach 10 °c and the temperature is going to dip to 10 °c at night. We expect around 38.4 mm of precipitation to fall and cloud covering 100% of the sky, the humidity will be around 91%. There is a lot of rain forecast and we just have to hope for a gap long enough to be able to get some play. At best, a rain-affected and shortened match is going to be possible.

Pitch Report: The pitch here at this stadium is much favored as batting pitch. It has a decent amount of pace, bounce, and enough carry to allow the batsmen to play their shots freely. A large number of boundaries will be hit on this venue. The pitch may also have some help in it for the seamers.
