Bangladesh Cricket Team made a thumping start to their ICC World Cup 2019 campaign, but two straight defeats have slowed their campaign. They will look to bounce back off the wall when they take on Sri Lanka at the County Ground in Bristol on June 11 (Tuesday).

Mashrafe Mortaza & Co have failed to come out as a unit in the last two games which have hurt them badly. Moreover, only Shakib Al Hasan has scored runs, and the management will want the other seniors to stand up and contribute to the team. Besides, the skipper also needs to deliver goods and lead the team from the front.

Bangladesh will look to come out stronger and return to winning ways in the next game.

Date and Time: June 11 (Tuesday), 3:00 PM IST, County Ground in Bristol

Here is the predicted playing XI of Bangladesh for match 15 of the ICC World Cup 2019 against Sri Lanka at the County Ground in Bristol:

Tamim Iqbal
