The top ranked Twenty20 team Sri Lanka face hosts Bangladesh who are the bottom ranked team in a two match T20 series starting in Chittagong on Wednesday.

 

Having won the two match Test Series 1-0, Bangladesh will be looking to restore some pride in the shortest format of the game.

 

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza won the toss and elected to field first. Sri Lanka welcomes the inclusion of Lasith Malinga and Nuwan Kulasekera, their T20 specialists on what looks like a good bowling surface.
