After suffering a defeat in their tournament opener, Bangladesh will be taking on Sri Lanka in the third T20I of the Nidahas Trophy 2018 at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. Sri Lanka registered a convincing five-wicket victory over India in the first match of the tournament and in the recent times, they have held an upper hand against Bangladesh. Not only Sri Lanka won the ODI tri-series in Bangladesh earlier this year but also the Test series and the T20Is.

You can follow the live scorecard here. Fans can watch live coverage on TV. The live coverage of the match will be shown on Discovery’s sports channel, DSports. The match will be  Rishtey Cineplex and Rishtey Cineplex HD in Hindi commentary. Live streaming of the match can be seen on JioTV.

Bangladesh without Shakib Al Hasan will depend more on the experience of Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Sabbir Rahman and Mustafizur Rahman. A defeat here will put them in further pressure. For Sri Lanka, all they will hope to do is carry on the good work. The likes of Kusal Perera and Thisara Perera will look forward to encash on their rich form.
