World Cup Prediction: Bangladesh vs. Sri Lanka

After a brilliant start in the World Cup 2019, Bangladeshi team has lost the momentum. The team has consecutively lost two matches against New Zealand and England. The team is placed at 8th spot in the points table with only a single victory in three games they have played.

On the other side, Sri Lanka’s last match against Pakistan was called off due to rain. In the points table, the team is placed at the center, i.e., at the 5th spot with one win in three matches the team has played. 

Pitch Conditions

Venue: County Ground, Bristol

Runs are expected to flow once again at Bristol. The track doesn't offer much seam movement. But, spinners can be a troublesome factor for the batsman.


Previously, teams winning the toss have preferred to field first at this venue. Generally, teams batting first have struggled here suggesting that the pitch is suitable for bowlers with the new ball.
