Sports Desk: Bangladesh will bat after losing the toss against Sri Lanka in their first match in Super Twelve. Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka has decided to field before winning the toss.

The match will start in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates at 4 pm Bangladesh time.

Despite losing the first match of the group stage, the Tigers turned around in the next two matches. Oman and Papua New Guinea lost to Super Twelve. On the other hand, they have reached the Super Twelve after winning all the matches in the group stage and becoming the group champions. So they are very confident of winning today's match. The captain of the Lankan team considers himself the favorite in this match.

Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka, who won the toss and elected to bat, said, "After the IPL, the wicket seems to have slowed down a bit. The team environment is very good after winning three matches. We also won practice matches. '

Mahmudullah Riyadh, however, is not dissatisfied with the loss of the toss. "We have to adapt to the conditions," he said. I hope it will be better to come to bat after losing the toss. '

Bangladesh has brought a change in the XI in this match. Spinner Nasum Ahmed has replaced fast bowler Taskin Ahmed. This change was expected in Sharjah's slow wicket. Changes have also come in the Sri Lankan XI. Left-arm pacer Binora Fernando has replaced spinner Thiksana.
