Sri Lanka had a dominating performance against Bangladesh in ODI format. They played a total of 53 matches with Sri Lanka winning 42 of them while Bangladesh won just 9 matches while 2 ending in no result.
Since the 2003 World Cup, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh met three times with Sri Lanka winning 3 while 1 ended in no-result. During the 2019 World Cup, the match was abandoned due to heavy rains.
It promises to be a high-scoring affair as the previous match between Netherlands and Australia. Australia batted first and posted 399 for 8 in 50 overs and skittled Netherlands out cheaply.
The pitch at Arun Jaitley Stadium, New Delhi promises to be a good batting pitch and helps the bowlers late. The captain that wins the toss would likely bat first putting on a decent score and putting pressure on the bowling.
