CWC 2015 - Lions v Tigers - Crucial Tie in Pool A

#SriLanka v #Bangladesh, #MCG
26th Feb 2015

In a very critical match, the two #Asian teams will battle it out at the legendary #MCG in Pool A.
The game has gained significance on account of Bangladesh stealing a point off #Australia in their abandoned match at the #GABBA few days ago. As a result, they are sitting undefeated in the pool with 3 points from 2 games.

Sri Lanka on the other hand have loads of problems to worry about. They were run over by the #Kiwis in the tournament opener and run very close by minnows #Afghanistan in their second game. They have 2 points from 2 games and look dodgy overall. Their batting hasnt clicked overall, bowling remains a worry and fielding isnt electric anyway.

Bangladesh on the other hand will feel buoyed by that Gabba result and will look to upset the Asian Lions to make Pool A very interesting. Bangladesh can progress to the next round at the expense of either Sri Lanka or #England.

All eyes on #MCG.
