Sri Lanka (SL) will be looking at much-needed two points when they clash against Bangladesh (BAN) at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium on Monday, November 6. Bangladesh will target a consolation win as they were knocked out of the semifinal qualification race after losing against Pakistan in their last game.
Injury-depleted Sri Lankan side remains alive in the knockout race with four points in seven games but face a near-impossible job of finishing in the top four. They suffered a huge 302-run defeat against India in their last game but remain favourites against Bangladesh having won all of their last three ODI encounters.
