ABOUT THE MATCH
The ICC World Cup 2019 is well and truly on its way now and teams are finding out that there are no easy wins in this edition of the cricket world cup. Every team is capable of beating the other team on its day and qualifying for the four semi-final spots is going to be tough.
Both the teams would be targeting this match as one they should win. Can Bangladesh continue its impressive performances and start notching up more victories or will Sri Lanka find a way to fight back?
Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka ICC World Cup 2019 match is going to be played at the County Ground, Bristol.
The team winning the toss is likely to want to bat second. There is a lot of rain around and DLS tends to favor the team that knows what target it has to achieve.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka ICC World Cup 2019 match is going to be played at the County Ground, Bristol. Sri Lanka’s match against Pakistan had to be abandoned in Bristol and the weather forecast for the match against Bangladesh is not very good either.
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.

Some World Cup Schedules are harder than others and there is no doubt that Bangladesh had to face some tough teams in its first three matches at the ICC World Cup 2019. Now, Sri Lanka is the first team against which Bangladesh would go as the favorite to win.
Bangladesh has impressed everyone with their batting in the tournament so far.
There are some holes in the batting performances. As the middle order does not have the power that some of the other teams possess.
Against, Sri Lanka, we expect the Bangladeshi batsmen to do much better.
Sri Lanka does not have any express fast bowlers to trouble the Bangladeshis and there is no world class spinner in their ranks either.
The Bangladeshi bowling has also been pretty good so far. All the bowlers have been disciplined apart.

Considered to be the weakest team in the CWC 2019 by many experts, Sri Lanka has a point to prove in this match.
In contrast to the settled and experienced Bangladesh side, the Sri Lankan side ended up making a lot of changes just ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019.
There is no good spinner in the side and once the new ball is done with, the opposition can score runs against them at will.
The only way for Sri Lanka to win this match is going to be through a superior batting performance.
