The stage is set for the battle of the Underdogs when Sri Lanka will take on the Bangladesh Tigers at the County Ground in Bristol. Having missed out in their previous game due to rain, Sri Lanka will be hoping to make the most out of this opportunity. Bangladesh, who lost two back-to-back matches after playing some impressive cricket, would be eyeing to bounce back when they collide with their Asian rivals, Sri Lanka. We can anticipate another enthralling encounter when both these sides meet in the 16th fixture of the 2019 ICC World Cup.
