Check out the pitch report of Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah and stadium records for today’s ICC T20 World Cup 2021 between Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka.

Following the conclusion of the first round of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, the main round will see the big sides take the stage. Bangladesh will face Sri Lanka in match 15 of the ICC T20 World Cup. Both sides have made it into this round after having ensured qualification. While Sri Lanka were unbeaten in the qualifying round, Bangladesh bounced back after the reversal they faced in the first match against Scotland to ensure qualification. Both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have the resources to exploit the conditions on offer and this should give them the edge as their players have also settled nicely into a groove when they lock horns.

Bangladesh are coming into this main round after having beaten teams like New Zealand and Australia at home and in conditions that are similar to the ones they prepared back home, they look a settled unit.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, come into this main round after having been unbeaten in the qualifying round and their side seems to have all the bases covered and if the players live up to their potential, they can well be a tricky proposition.
