Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh 1st ODI: Live Streaming, Playing XIs, Fantasy Prediction

The Bangladesh cricket team is all set to face the hosts Sri Lanka on the 29th of April for a brief bilateral hustle. The two teams will be playing a total of 6 games against each other, with a combination of 3 ODI games and 3 T20I games. Ahead of Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh 1st ODI, here are all the details of the Live Streaming, Playing XIs, Fantasy Prediction, Squads etc.

Both teams haven’t played a single international game since the T20 World Cup. The ICC T20 World Cup was rather disappointing, as they finished the first round on their respective points table. By the end of the World Cup, Sri Lanka was placed in the 8th position while Bangladesh was placed in the 9th position on the ICC team ranking tables as well. The two teams will be seen spending a major part of their summers in Colombo as the bilateral series will continue up to the 12th of May.

The ODI matches that are set to begin from tomorrow onwards are a part of the ICC Championship. They are indelible and of utmost importance for the two teams to improve their ICC rankings for the latest edition of 2022-2025.

The first ODI game will be played at Colombo’s P Sara Oval. Team Bangladesh has undergone a major change with former captain Rumana Ahmed’s omission from the squad. Rumana has been among the squad’s key players since her debut in 2011, bringing in loads of experience for the team to carry on their tour. But her swipe against the management has got the player into further trouble.

Here is a quick review of the two teams and all that is expected from Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh 1st ODI with respect to the probable squads, pitch report and fantasy predictions.
