BAN vs SL Dream11 16th Match Prediction | Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka ICC World Cup 2019

The sixteenth fixture of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between two subcontinent sides – Bangladesh and Sri Lanka at the County Ground in Bristol. Both teams are struggling in their campaign and will look to gain momentum in the ongoing tournament.

With two defeats and one win in three games, Bangladesh is in an alarming state. They started with 21 runs win over South Africa but have faced two back to back defeats against New Zealand and England. One more defeat will make things worse for the side. And, hence it is a must-win game for Bangladesh Tigers.

Sri Lanka’s last fixture with Pakistan ended in a no result due to rain coming into action. In three games, Sri Lanka has one win, one loss and one no result and are in a better position than the opposition.
