Both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have played three matches in the World Cup so far and both teams find themselves in the bottom half of the points table. A win, therefore, will be priceless for either team, but rain could also have the last laugh.
After an impressive opening win over South Africa, Bangladesh fell short against New Zealand by two wickets in their second match and was hammered by England by 106 runs in the third match.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, were bowled out by New Zealand for a paltry 136 runs and their batsmen struggled against Afghanistan after a solid start, but somehow managed to win the rain obstructed game by DLS method. And their third game against Pakistan was abandoned due to rain without a ball being bowled.
With all 10 teams at the World Cup part of the round-robin group stage, each team will play a total of nine matches before the knockout stages, starting July 9. The top four teams will qualify for the knockout stages.
