Both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have slim hopes of qualification but have it all to do when they meet on Monday.

Bangladesh have lost six matches in a row, slumping towards the bottom of the table, in what has been a very poor tournament for many peoples dark horses. Sri Lanka looked to be picking up some form but consecutive losses to Afghanistan and India have left them with a lot of work to do if they want to make the semi-finals.

Sri Lanka to get back to winning ways

Bangladesh have been on a terrible run of form, being defeated by every side they’ve faced, with the exception of Afghanistan in their first match of the tournament. They can, technically, still qualify for the final four but they would need everything to fall into place for that to happen.

Sri Lanka looks as though they could challenge for a top four finish but a disappointing loss to Afghanistan saw them fall away from the chasing pack. A win here would put them back into the reckoning but it would still be a very unlikely outcome to see them in the semi-final.

Sri Lanka are the favourites ahead of the match, perhaps more of an indication of Bangladesh’s poor form than Sri Lanka’s ability, and they should have enough about them to claim the victory.
