Sri Lanka Vs Bangladesh Women Match Preview & Prediction

Sri Lanka take on Bangladesh in the 1st  game of the 3 match ODI series. This will be the 2nd H2H meeting between the 2 teams, with Sri Lanka emerging victorious on the only previous occasion. Though Bangladesh (7) are ranked higher than Sri Lanka (10) on the ODI team rankings, it’ll be Sri Lanka who’ll head in as favourites in this series. It has a lot to do with them playing at home and also with Bangladesh missing some of their key experienced players
