Sri Lanka will look to bounce back strongly after facing their first defeat by Bangladesh in Test while Bangladesh needs to continue their form in ODI series too to win the series.
Bangladesh will look to put good performance against host and improve their away form. But it is not going to be so easy as Sri Lanka has a strong record at home. The Lanka’s form at home is pretty good, they won last five Tests on home soil and recently defeated Australia 3-0 in the last series in August 2016. Sri Lanka will hope to continue their dominance at home when they take on Bangladesh.
