A very important game for both teams as a loss here will seriously jeopardize their chances to qualify for the semi-finals. commentary India Today Web Desk BristolJune 11, 2019UPDATED: June 11, 2019 12:31 IST Sri Lanka will miss the services of Nuwan Pradeep who won them the match against Afghanistan (Reuters Photo)After two consecutive defeats, Bangladesh will look to return to winning ways when they face a depleted Sri Lanka in their fourth World Cup game at the Bristol Cricket Ground on Tuesday.The Bangla Tigers, after making a perfect start to their World Cup campaign against South Africa, faced back to back defeats against New Zealand and England and are low on confidence.Recent FormApart from the first game against the Proteas, the Bangladesh batting has not been consistent and it has only been all-rounder Shakib al Hasan who has been able to perform. None of their other batters have been able to maintain consistency and have failed to cope with the scoreboard pressure. Their openers, Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal, have not been able to provide the starts that the Bangladeshi fans would be hoping for, something which Mashrafe Mortaza will desperately want.Meanwhile, Sri Lanka will be looking for two crucial points after their last encounter was washed out against Pakistan. The Dimuth Karunaratne-led side started their tournament campaign on the worst possible note, conceding a 10-wicket defeat to New Zealand. However, it was their bowling which rescued them against Afghanistan in a rain-curtailed match which they just managed to win.”Their big players are experienced and really know their role.””The confidence is up and the guys are hungry.”Who will come out ahead in today’s #BANvSL #CWC19 match? pic.twitter.com/lp4vgOuuUGCricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 11, 2019Pitch prediction – BristolMatches in Bristol have been very high-scoring in the recent past.

They have suffered batting collapses and have not been able to play their full quota of 50 overs in all the completed matches.Sri Lanka and Bangladesh face off today knowing that a win at this stage will do a world of good for their positions.Who will have the edge? #BANvSL | #CWC19https://t.co/VuBbDO5osTCricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 11, 2019In bowling, they will miss the services of Nuwan Pradeep who won them the match against Afghanistan.
