Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are set to compete at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi in their Cricket World Cup 2023 encounter on Monday. Both teams find themselves in a situation where there is little at stake, having been unable to secure a spot in the semi-finals due to their underwhelming performances in the tournament thus far.
Bangladesh currently occupies the ninth position on the World Cup points table, having won just one of their seven matches in the competition. The side, led by Shakib Al Hasan, managed to secure their lone victory against Afghanistan in the tournament’s opening match last month. Since then, they have faced six consecutive defeats, and come into this game on the back of a a 7-wicket loss against Pakistan in Bengaluru.
Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Waseem picked up three wickets each to restrict Bangladesh to a first innings total of 204, which Pakistan chased down in 45.1 overs.
Sri Lanka currently occupies the seventh position on the points table, with just two wins to their name and five losses. In their most recent match, Sri Lanka faced a resounding defeat at the hands of India, who posted a formidable total of 357 runs while batting first. Sri Lanka, in their pursuit, were dismissed for a mere 55 runs.
