Bangladesh hammered Sri Lanka by 103 in the rain-affected second ODI on Tuesday (May 25) at the iconic Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka to take a 2-0 lead.
Also, another ten points with a win will give Bangladesh a 20-point lead over England at the top of the ICC World Cup Super League points table. They have 50 points from eight matches (five wins and three defeats).
Another win on Friday will give Bangladesh their 27th ODI series win, and third in five engagements. Since losing to Sri Lanka 0-3 in 2019, Bangladesh have win 3-0 against Zimbabwe and the West Indies. But they were blanked 3-0 by New Zealand in March.
For the visitors, another defeat will be their sixth on the bounce, having lost to West Indies 0-3 in the Caribbean before coming to Bangladesh.
Sri Lanka still have a negative point in the Super League points table, a -2 from five outings.
Head-to-head: They have met 50 times. Sri Lanka lead the head-to-head record 39-9. Two matches were no results.
Mushfiqur Rahim won man of the match awards in both the matches played so far. And the focus will be on the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman, once again.
