Bangladesh will want to get back on track after successive defeats when they face Sri Lanka in match no 16 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The BAN vs SL game will be played at the County Ground in Bristol on June 11 (Tuesday). Bangladesh were thrashed by hosts England in their previous match, while Sri Lanka’s game against Pakistan at the same ground was abandoned without a ball being bowled, due to rain. Both sides have a win each and will be playing their fourth match in CWC 2019. The Bengal Tigers began their World Cup 2019 campaign with a handsome victory over the more fancied South Africa, while the Lankans were humiliated by New Zealand in their opening match and somehow scrapped to a win over Afghanistan. But irrespective of recent form, Sri Lanka has always had an upper-hand on Bangladesh. Sri Lanka has beaten Bangladesh in all of the three times both sides have met at the World Cups.
