Adds that after losing the first match in the qualifiers, the boys are pretty relaxed and are looking forward to this game. Informs that Taskin Ahmed is out and Nasum Ahmed comes in.
Dasun Shanaka, the skipper of Sri Lanka, says they will bowl first as their bowlers have been doing good job so far. Adds that they don't know exactly how the pitch will behave so they would like to chase. Tells that they are confident going into this game as they have played really well in last couple of games.

The Islanders didn't put a foot wrong in the preliminary stage as they won all their three games comprehensively. Their bowlers have been exceptional and the highest score they have conceded so far is 101. The side have already been two-time runner's up, have reached one semifinal and also have a trophy in their cabinet and with such performances in the qualifiers, they cannot be ruled out yet. Sri Lanka have met Bangladesh once in T20 World Cup where the Lankans emerged victorious. They have a good bowling unit and their batters would also like to have some runs under their belt. They would look to start their Super 12 journey with a win. Stay tuned for further updates.
Bangladesh went down against Scotland in their first game of the qualifiers but then bounced back and closed the qualifiers with 2 wins. They have exuded great character to seal a spot in the Super 12. Shakib Al Hasan has been at the forefront for them. He has scored 108 runs and have picked up 9 wickets in 3 matches. Mahmudullah and Mohammad Naim also came with telling contributions in the qualifiers and the Tigers would want to start their Super 12 campaign on a winning note.
A warm welcome to everyone for the coverage of the T20 World Cup where Sri Lanka will cross swords with Bangladesh. Both the Asian sides had to earn their spot to be in the Super 12. A good start in a rather challenging group is imperative and heading into this clash, both the teams will be keen on making an impact straight away. So who are you backing?
