Bristol, June 11, Tuesday at 03:00 PM IST
Bangladesh will look to resurrect their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Campaign when they face off another sub-continent side Sri Lanka in their next fixture on Tuesday at Bristol.
Bangladesh is down on confidence with two back to back defeats at the hands of New Zealand and England and need to get their campaign back on track with a win against Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka looks a bit more comfortable after bouncing back from a crushing 10 wickets defeats at the hands of New Zealand in the opening fixture. They secured their maiden win against Afghanistan in a rain-affected match while their last fixture against Pakistan got abandoned due to rain playing spoilsport. In three games, Sri Lanka has one win, one loss and one no result.
Sri Lanka faces a big blow just ahead of the clash as fast bowler Nuwan Pradeep gets ruled out of the clash against Windies after being hit in the bowling arm. Pradeep was the man of the match against Afghanistan for his 4-31. Now, the pace bowling onus lies on the shoulders of most experienced Lasith Malinga.
The coin will be tossed at 03:00 PM IST.
Average first innings score: 243
Average second innings score: 216
Highest Total: 373/5 (50 Ov) by ENGW vs RSAW
Lowest Total: 92/10 (24.5 Ov) by ZIM vs ENG
While the last game scheduled her ended in a no result, Bristol has witnessed a couple of high-scoring clashes in the past. In a warm-up game, West Indies scored 421 against New Zealand at the same ground. Pakistan scored 358 against England in the ODI series. The short straight boundaries will be most targeted by the batsmen and a good game of cricket is expected to take place.
However, the weather will have the final say. The overcast conditions can force the toss winning side to field first.
