Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Today Match Prediction Preview:

Welcome to the BAN vs SL Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. Co-hosts Sri Lanka will be locking horns with Bangladesh in Match 2 of the ongoing Asia Cup 2023.

Sri Lanka have already suffered a big jolt ahead of Asia Cup 2023 as 4 of their key players have been ruled out of the tournament due to injuries.

The likes of Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara and Lahiru Madushanka will be missing the upcoming tournament.

Bangladesh would be fancying their chances to win this game as they will be looking to take advantage of a deflated Sri Lankan side.

They however have themselves been dealt with a blow as star opener Litton Das will be missing the tournament because of a viral fever.
