Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will battle it out in the second ODI of the three-match series in Colombo on Sunday. The home side have a 1-0 lead after registering an impressive 91-run win in the first ODI, therefore, the Islanders will be trying their best to register another impressive performance and seal the series. The game will once again be played at Colombo, same as Friday's match, which means the team winning the toss will be eager to bat first and put runs on the board; however, light showers are expected in the second-half, which makes the decision a tricky one.
In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of in-form Kusal Perera, captain Dimuth Karunaratne and veteran right-hander Angelo Mathews to score the bulk of the runs, whereas on the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of Nuwan Pradeep, Thisara Perera and Dhananjaya de Silva to produce timely breakthroughs. Since veteran pacer Lasith Malinga has retired from the 50-over format after the first match, there is at least one change expected where off-spinner Akila Dananjaya is likely going to be included in the playing XI.
On the other hand, Bangladesh will come in the match bitterly disappointed with the showing on Friday and will know that they will have to win in order to stay alive in the series. On the batting front, the team will be relying on captain Tamim Iqbal, veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim and in-form Sabbir
