Sri Lanka have won the toss and elected to bat against Bangladesh on a sunny day in the Sher-e-Bangla stadium in Dhaka. All-rounder Nuwan Kulasekera is ruled out of the game due to an injury and he is replaced by Ajantha Mendis while the hosts bring back pacer Mashrafe Mortaza in place of Al-Amin Hossain.

 

Bangladesh will look to solve their middle order woes after throwing away first ODI despite being in the driver’s seat for the better part of the game.

 

Teams:

 

Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim (c), Anamul Haque (wk), Arafat Sunny, Mahmudullah, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mominul Haque, Nasir Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Shamsur Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan, Sohag Gazi.

 

Sri Lanka: Angelo Mathews (c), Dinesh Chandimal, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Ajantha Mendis, Kusal Perera, Thisara Perera, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Sachitra Senanayake, Kithuruwan Vithanage.
