The stage is set for the battle of the underdogs, with Sri Lanka set to take on Bangladesh at the Bristol County Ground on Tuesday. With their last match against Pakistan abandoned due to heavy rain, Sri Lanka will be hoping to make it count against Bangladesh, who lost two back-to-back matches after beating South Africa in their World Cup opener. Bangladesh would be eyeing to bounce back when they collide with their Asian rivals tomorrow. We can anticipate another enthralling encounter when both these sides meet in the 16th fixture of the 2019 ICC World Cup.
