Watch Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Live | Nidahas Trophy
Bangladesh face-off against Sri Lanka in a do-or-die match at the R.Premadasa Stadium. This is the last group match of the Nidahas Trophy and the winning team will face India in the final.
Sri Lanka, after winning their first match against India, lost two successive matches. On the other hand, Bangladesh lost both of their matches against India and won their only clash against the hosts.
