Best picks for Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka in Cricket World Cup today

With rain continuing to fall at Bristol, a decision was taken to abandon the game without a ball being bowled shortly before 2pm - three-and-a-half hours after play was scheduled to begin - meaning both sides each took a point.

The first was also in Bristol, last Friday, Sri Lanka vs. Pakistan.

Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Malinga will leave the team following their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 game against Bangladesh, today at Bristol, to attend the funeral of his mother-in-law.

"I know logistically it would have been a big headache for the tournament organisers", Rhodes began at the post-match press conference. "They have got tickets to see a game of cricket, and you know it would be up to them if they can get there the day after", Rhodes said.

Bangladesh Coach Steve Rhodes after team's match washed out on Tuesday. "We put men on the moon (laughing) so why can't we have a reserve day, when actually this tournament is a long tournament?"

The weather over England is poor this week, and rain is forecast at Taunton on Wednesday, when Australia plays Pakistan, and on Thursday at Nottingham, where India meets New Zealand. "I don't know if they can keep a reserve day for us", he said.

The Sri Lanka captain said: "I think as a team, we came here to play".

On Monday, a struggling South Africa had to share points with the West Indies after their World cup match was washed out due to persistent rain at Southampton. So we are well aware of what they have got and we know what's coming and we've got some plans to try and deal with that. Bangladesh, for example, have a five-day gap before their next game against West Indies in Taunton.

Rhodes expects star allrounder Shakib Al Hasan, who hurt a thigh muscle on Saturday while scoring a century against England, to be available to play the West Indies after another five days of recuperation. "We'll be hopeful that they are going to worry about some of our players".
