The return of Shakib Al Hasan has boosted Bangladesh's chances ahead of their do-or-die clash against Sri Lanka in the Nidahas Trophy.

The 6th match of the tri-series will be played at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Friday, March 16, 2018.

The match starts at 7:00 PM IST.

The toss will take place at 6:30 PM IST. Stay tuned for the line-ups and live coverage.

India, the third participating team in the tri-series, has already reached the finals of the Hero Nidahas Trophy.

Whoever wins this game will take on India on Sunday night.

Sri Lanka would want to avenge their loss against Bangladesh where the visitors chased a massive score of 215 runs to win the first game.

They will be more wary of the Bangladeshi players, particularly after Shakib's re-entry. He will take the place of Nazmul Islam in the line-up.

Weather and pitch

According to Friday's forecast, rain is expected in the evening. Winning the toss and fielding second is the best option to take advantage of the situation. Playing under light and the dew factor can make a difference to the team fielding second.

TV telecast and online streaming

DSport will bean the match live for viewers in India, while Ghazi Tv has the rights for live coverage in Bangladesh.

Record viewership is expected as this is considered as the semi-finals of the tri-series with the team winning to enter the finals.

India is right on top of the points table with three wins and six points while Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are at two points with one win each.
