Lasith Malinga is all set to play his last game of ODI cricket while he wants to play T20Is till next World Cup scheduled in Australia.
The match between Srilanka and Bangladesh at the World Cup was washed out so they didn’t check their power against each other but this game might come up as their teams’ strength against each other.
While this game will be so emotional for Srilanka as their legend Lasith Malinga will bow out and will be retired from ODIs after the end of this game.
On the other hand, Bangladesh will be missing the services of Shakib Al Hasan and Mashrafe Murtaza who are rested for the series with some reasons as Shakib Al Hasan wanted a break from the cricket and Mashrafe was struggling with his fitness.
