HIGHLIGHTS

  • 18:39 (IST)

    MATCH CALLED OFF: Finally after a long wait for hours, the umpires have called-off the match. An unfortunate end as both teams needed those two points in their kitty. 

  • 17:41 (IST)

    WEATHER UPDATE: So the news from the middle is that there is a possibility of a 20-over game. But the cut-off time for that is 8.45 IST. Still a lot of time left in this match, so, fingers crossed.

  • 17:21 (IST)

    This could be another washout in as many days. Sri Lanka will be extremely unfortunate if that happens as they have already been on the receiving end of relentless rains in this tournament. On the flipside, they will surely get one point from the encounter that could work in their favour. 

  • 16:47 (IST)

    Well, we have news and it is all that encouraging. News coming in is that the inspection which was scheduled to happen at 16:45 IST has been postponed owing to the constant drizzle. No update on when the next inspection will be held.

  • 14:29 (IST)

    The toss has been delayed and we will have an inspection at 10:30 local time (3 PM IST).

  • 13:06 (IST)

    We are afraid we have got some bad news for all of you. It's raining in Bristol and the forecast says it's going to rain for most of the day. It won't come as a surprise if this match gets washed out. Sri Lanka's last match against Pakistan was also rained out.

Meanwhile, doesn't look like we are seeing the last of rain at the World Cup. Here's Karthik Lakshmanan with some more updates from Nottingham where India take on New Zealand on Thursday.

Scratch the previous update. It is raining again! Vicious circle, eh? 

16:27 (IST)

There is another inspection expected in about 20 minutes. There isn't happening as I type. Things are not looking on the up, frankly. Rain has relented but there is so much water on the outfield that it is going to take some time to get the ground cleared. Fans waiting patiently. 

16:02 (IST)

Oh, the rain is back! Please ignore our last update. 

15:52 (IST)

The rain has finally stopped in Bristol and it's getting brighter and brighter. The umpires are out for inspection. Fingers crossed!

15:43 (IST)

Nothing new here. It's still raining in Bristol. And, in Nottingham as well.

15:07 (IST)

The covers are still on and it's highly unlikely that we will get a game today.

14:47 (IST)

Here's what Mashrafe Mortaza had to say ahead of the match:

"If we can deliver our best we knew what we could do. I'm sure some people don't think well of our cricket. We are concentrating on our game and letting other people talk. I'm not worried about who is respecting us, I'm more worried about our performance. Winning matches is more important for us. I don't think respect is going to work in the 22 yards (of a pitch). It all depends on how we react on the ground." 

14:29 (IST)

The toss has been delayed and we will have an inspection at 10:30 local time (3 PM IST).

14:23 (IST)

Malinga will leave the team after Sri Lanka's clash against Bangladesh and travel to Colombo following the death of his mother-in-law. The paceman however is expected to return before Sri Lanka's next encounter against Australia on June 15.

14:22 (IST)

Nuwan Pradeep – who has been Sri Lanka’s leading wicket-taker - will miss the game due to a finger injury he picked in training. Lasith Malinga has done well to spearhead the bowling but whether the 35-year-old can carry on in the same vein throughout the tournament is something that remains to be seen.

14:10 (IST)

Dimuth Karunaratne has led from the front and delivered with the bat for the team, however lack of support and application from other batsmen has hurt Sri Lanka.

14:00 (IST)

Sri Lanka meanwhile have three points from three games after a washout against Pakistan and a victory against Afghanistan.

13:47 (IST)

The batsmen have been scoring runs but it’s the bowlers who haven’t been able to back them. They leaked 386 runs against England. The dependence on spinners has meant that Bangladesh have struggled when the conditions have been cloudy or the pitch doesn’t have much to offer for their tweakers.

13:34 (IST)

Bowling form of skipper Mashrafe Mortaza will worry the Bangla Tigers but they will be pleased with the way Shakib al Hasan is contributing with both bat and ball. Mohammad Saifuddin has been effective in the death overs but will want more from Mustafizur Rahman who had an off day against England.

13:33 (IST)

UPDATE - Nothing new, it's still raining in Bristol.

13:19 (IST)

After starting their campaign with a victory over South Africa, Bangladesh went down to New Zealand in a thriller before losing convincingly against hosts England.

13:06 (IST)

We are afraid we have got some bad news for all of you. It's raining in Bristol and the forecast says it's going to rain for most of the day. It won't come as a surprise if this match gets washed out. Sri Lanka's last match against Pakistan was also rained out.

Bangladesh will look to return to winning ways when they take on Sri Lanka in ICC World Cup 2019 encounter on Tuesday.

After starting their campaign with a victory over South Africa, Bangladesh went down to New Zealand in a thriller before losing convincingly against hosts England.

Bowling form of skipper Mashrafe Mortaza will worry the Bangla Tigers but they will be pleased with the way Shakib-Al-Hasan is contributing with both bat and ball. Mohammad Saifuddin has been effective in the death overs but will want more from Mustafizur Rahman who had an off day against England.

Sri Lanka meanwhile have three points from three games after a washout against Pakistan and a victory against Afghanistan.

Dimuth Karunaratne has led from the front and delivered with the bat for the team, however lack of support and application from other batsmen has hurt Sri Lanka.

Nuwan Pradeep – who has been Sri Lanka’s leading wicket-taker - will miss the game due to a finger injury he picked in training. Lasith Malinga has done well to spearhead the bowling but whether the 35-year-old can carry on in the same vein throughout the tournament is something that remains to be seen.

This is a crucial match for both the teams but the forecast in Bristol doesn't look great. Sri Lanka's last game against Pakistan here was also washed out without a ball being bowled.
