In the upcoming 2023 World Cup match, Bangladesh will take on Sri Lanka at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. Sri Lanka’s chances of progressing to the semifinals appear slim, as they are currently seventh in the points table with four points from seven matches, including two wins and five defeats. Meanwhile, Bangladesh has already been eliminated from the tournament and sits in the ninth position out of ten teams, having garnered two points with one win and six defeats.

Sri Lanka not only needs to win their remaining two matches but also rely on favorable results from other games if they aspire to secure the fourth spot, although this possibility seems highly unlikely.

It’s worth noting that the match is being played in Delhi, where air pollution has become a growing concern. The Air Quality Index (AQI) was categorized as “severe” on Sunday. The ICC has taken steps to address this issue by consulting Pulmonologist Dr. Randeep Guleria to assess the situation and provide expert advice. Measures include water sprinklers around the premises and the installation of air purifiers in the dressing rooms and areas for match officials. The AQI within the stadium has been closely monitored and has now reached acceptable levels according to Dr. Guleria’s guidance.

Both teams will be playing for pride, given their underwhelming performances in the tournament. Sri Lanka is coming off a devastating 302-run loss to India, where they were bowled out for just 55. Bangladesh, on the other hand, was the first team to be eliminated from the competition.

Head-to-head in ODIs between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, the two teams have faced each other 53 times, with Sri Lanka holding a 42-9 advantage, and two matches ending without a result.

In terms of their ODI World Cup history, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have clashed four times, with Sri Lanka emerging victorious on three occasions, and one match concluding without a result.

Form guide for both teams is as follows:

  • Bangladesh: L-L-L-L-L
  • Sri Lanka: L-L-W-W-L

An interesting fact: Shakib Al Hasan has remained wicketless in 13 out of the 26 ODI innings he has bowled against Sri Lanka.
