Although there is not much difference between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, Sri Lanka slightly edge their opponents in terms of ability.

Both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have a dodgy batting line up and apart from a couple of good batters, they lack depth and consistency.

Bangladesh's batting especially has been nothing short of embarrassing as they have folded up for 46 against West Indies and 76 against England. Their batting lacks intent and neither the players try to go out of their way to step up the scoring rate nor do they possess quick run-making ability.

The lone shining light for them is Ayesha Rahman who can pack a punch. She showed that by hitting three sixes in her 39-run knock against England.

The bowling is quite decent with the likes of Salma Khatun, Rumana Ahmed and Khadija Tul Kubra in their ranks. They were able to restrict Windies to 106.

However, the Sri Lankan batters are used to playing spin and it is pace that made them a bit uncomfortable against South Africa. But they must not worry about that as all Bangladesh have to offer is spin.

Sri Lanka gained one point due to their washed out match against England. The Lankas then faced a seven-wicket loss against South Africa.

Skipper Chamari Athapaththu, Yasoda Mendis would start proceedings for them with the bat with Hasini Perera and Shashikala Siriwardene to follow. However, there is not much batting to back up the top four.


Let's have a look at the predicted playing XIs of both teams.

Sri Lanka- Chamari Athapaththu, Yasoda Mendis, Hasini Perera, Shashikala Siriwardene, Dilani Manodara, Eshani Lokusuriyage, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Nilakshi de Silva, Sripali Weerakkody, Udeshika Prabodhani, Sugandika Kumari

Bangladesh- Shamima Sultana, Ayasha Rahman, Fargana Hoque, Nigar Sultana, Rumana Ahmed, Sanjida Islam, Lata Mondal, Fahima Khatun, Jahanara Alam, Salma Khatun, Khadija Tul Kubra
