Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Match 16

County Ground, Bristol
Similar to the previous PAK-SL game which got washed out at this very venue, this match also is at the threat of being abandoned due to persistent rain. Although the weather is slated to clear up later in the day, it should provide a lot of help to the pacers with swing and bounce.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: All three of Mushfiqur Rahim, Kusal Mendis and Kusal Perera should be picked for this game given their importance in such a high octane clash in the World Cup. While Kusal Perera and Mushfiqur Rahim have already made a mark in the World Cup, Kusal Mendis is one to watch out for even after two failures prior to this game. His ability to shift gears effortlessly in the middle overs give Sri Lanka hope as they look to get one over Bangladesh on Tuesday.
Batsmen: The Bangladesh opening pair of Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar are great options considering their form in the first ten overs and the lack of a genuine swing bowler in the Sri Lankan set-up. Along with them, one of Angelo Mathews or Sri Lankan captain Dimuth Karunaratne should suffice as the third and final batting option.
All-rounders: Thisara Perera is one of Sri Lanka’s best bets with both bat and ball in what could be a shortened game on Tuesday. Along with him, Shakib Al Hasan is the must-have in any fantasy side with the Bangladesh all-rounder leading the run-scoring charts with 260 runs in just three games. Given his immense ability with the ball as well, he is surely one to watch out for.
Bowlers: Mohammad Saifuddin and Mehidy Hasan Miraz are brilliant options with the ball with both of them regularly picking wickets for Bangladesh in all their games. While their batting is an added bonus, their bowling ability should bring in some valuable points. Isuru Udana is also a very resourceful player given his exploits with the bat against South Africa earlier in the year, making him a handy option for this game as well.
Captain: Kusal Perera and Tamim Iqbal are the ideal options given this match could be interrupted by rain. Both of them are looking in fine touch with Tamim even due for a big one in conditions he is quite capable of scoring big in. Shakib Al Hasan is also a brilliant option given his all-round ability although the law of averages could catch up quick on him.
