Bangladesh v Sri Lanka World Cup team news
Bangladesh have been predictably horrible. Their campaign was epitomised by skipper Shakib-al-Hasan going home for a little break halfway through. Other disappointments have included the form of Najmul Shanto who has not delivered with the bat.
Possible XI: Tanzid, Das, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Shanto, Shakib, Mushfiqur, Mahmudullah, Mehedy, Taskin, Shoriful, Mustafizur
The 302-run humiliation against India aside, Sri Lanka should perhaps consider the avoidance of the wooden spoon in this tournament as a positive. Their injury list has been horrific. They have unearthed a real gem in Dilshan Madushanka, too. The pacer went top of the wicket-taker list.
Possible XI: Nissanka, Karunaratne, Mendis, Samarawickrama, Asalanka, Dhananjaya, Mathews, Wellalage, Theekshana, Madushanka, Rajitha
Bangladesh v Sri Lanka World Cup pitch report
South Africa's 428 against Sri Lanka and Australia's 399 against Netherlands says Delhi is flat. Air pollution has been a debilitating factor in the build-up to this game for both teams. Both to score 300 is 11/26.50 with Sportsbook.
Bangladesh v Sri Lanka World Cup match odds
These two are hopeless and unreliable. But it is debateable whether there's as big a gap in ability as the odds suggest, mainly because of the Sri Lanka player drain.
Bangladesh could at least be a trade at a big 2.8815/8 to around 2.1011/10. Add 50% on the original stake on the lay button. Sri Lanka, though, at a prohibitive 1.558/15 will surely be a more popular lay bet.
Bangladesh v Sri Lanka World Cup player bets
Madushanka may be the most sensible bet on the player markets where there is a dearth of reliability. He is 3/14.00 with Sportsbook for top Sri Lanka bat.
Mahmudullah's good form for Bangladesh means he catches the eye at 9/25.50 for their top bat. Mehidy Hasan Miraz could be considered value at 6/17.00 as he may bat at No 3.
