After a disappointing World Cup campaign, both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will eye a fresh start when go up against each other in the three-match ODI series beginning with the first ODI on 26th July 2019. All three ODI matches will be played at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

The Asian Islanders are viewing this series as an experimental platform to test their reserves. As a result, the Sri Lankan selectors have named a 22-member squad for this series. According to their chief selector Asantha De Mel, they are likely to come out with different playing combinations in all three games.

Most importantly, ace pacer Lasith Malinga is set to bring curtains to his career after the conclusion of the first ODI against Bangladesh, which makes it even more important for the home side and they would love to bid farewell to the veteran with a victory in the opening encounter.

For Bangladesh, the series is an opportunity to register their maiden ODI series win against the struggling hosts. Though the visitors have suffered early blows prior to the series with skipper Mashrafe Mortaza and Mohammad Saifuddin ruled out owing to injuries, Tamim Iqbal will be keen on leading the team which has its fare share of experience.
