Live updates:

Bangladesh need to score 312 to win

Match delayed due to rain

Sri Lanka 311 in 50 overs.

The first ODI did not go as planned for the home team and they lost wickets at regular intervals with no meaningful partnership between any players.

The visitors scored fast, and by the time five wickets were down they had already scored 324 runs. The hosts have doled a humiliating 90 runs defeat by Bangladesh.

The Lankans will be desperate to level the three-match ODI series 1-1. A Bangla win will give them an unassailable lead in the three-match series. If the visitors win the last game of the series, they will attain number six positions in the ICC ODI ranking.

Bangladesh side brimming with confidence and young players

The Bangla team has numerous greenhorns like Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mahmudullah, etc. However, Sri Lanka has not been able to capitalize on the inexperience of the visitors. Bangla team is playing with finesse, and therefore it will continue with the winning combination as in the past. However, captain, Mortaza has said that he is not afraid to have a new combination and to replace some players.

Sri Lankan pace battery is further strengthened

Niroshan could have played after his suspension but it is reported that he is injured and therefore will not be available. Off-spinner Dilruwan Perera will be playing in his place. The pace battery will be strengthened with the addition of Pradeep and Nuvan Kulasekara.

Suranga Lakamal is facing some issues and there is a question mark on his playing.

Ground Condition and pitch

The Dambulla surface has a little extra grass and therefore it will be turning much as in the past.

The weatherman has predicted that weather will be fine with clear skies for most of the time.
