Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka: When, where and how to watch; live-streaming details

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, in an exciting clash scheduled for Thursday, August 31, are set to ignite the cricketing stage at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy. As the curtains rise on the Asia Cup 2023, both teams want to start the tournament with an eye on victory.

The spotlight falls on this inaugural match for each of these teams. Sri Lanka will enter the tournament with a lineup somewhat diminished due to player injuries. This places Bangladesh in a favourable position, presenting them with an opportunity to seize an advantage over their opponent.

The pitch’s character at Pallekele will evolve, gradually offering a slower and more conducive surface for spin bowlers. However, it is historically known for favouring the batters. In light of this transformation, the decision made by the toss-winning captain could prove pivotal. Initially, bowlers may not get any support from the pitch.

Meanwhile, rain may spoil the fun for cricket fans. While the match is set to start at 3 PM (India time), there are chances of rain and thunderstorms between 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM, as per Weather.com. It is poised to settle down after that while the sky will remain cloudy. So, there is a possibility that there will be fewer overs to be played in the match.
