Sri Lanka, Bangladesh regroup post World Cup

Bangladesh won their warm-up game against Sri Lanka Board President's XI
Seventh-placed Bangladesh can increase the lead over Sri Lanka when the teams face off in a three-match series.

• All eyes on retiring star Malinga; the likes of Dananjaya, Mushfiqur and Tamim could move up in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings after three-match series

Retiring fast bowler Lasith Malinga is in the focus as Sri Lanka and Bangladesh players prepare for their first series after the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019, a three-match face-off in Colombo from Friday providing them a chance to work their way up in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings.

Malinga, who will retire from ODIs after the opening match, is the second-highest ranked bowler from his side in 35th position, with 552 rating points. He is nowhere near his peak in terms of rankings, but the 35-year-old would like to go out with a memorable performance to cap a 15-year ODI career.

The only bowler to have taken three ODI hat-tricks, Malinga attained a career-high points tally of 675 after a memorable spell of three for 22 against Bangladesh in Colombo in July 2007. His highest ranking was seventh in November 2011, achieved against Pakistan in Dubai.

Spinner Akila Dananjaya is the highest ranked bowler from Sri Lanka in 21st position, while Angelo Mathews and Niroshan Dickwella are the leading batsmen for the home side, in 35th and 42nd positions, respectively.

In the absence of World Cup star and world’s top all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who has been rested from the series, Bangladesh batsmen Mushfiqur Rahim (19th) and Tamim Iqbal (27th) will be leading the charge among batsmen, while Mustafizur Rahman (15th) and Mehidy Hasan Miraz (17th) would be looking to move towards the top 10 in the bowlers’ list.

In the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankings, seventh-placed Bangladesh can increase the lead over Sri Lanka from 11 to 16 points with a 3-0 win while losing the series by the same margin could see them slip to ninth position, behind the West Indies on decimal points. The rankings predictor is available here.

Series scenarios:

• Bangladesh win 3-0: Bangladesh 93 points, Sri Lanka 77 points
• Bangladesh win 2-1: Bangladesh 90, Sri Lanka 78
• Sri Lanka win 2-1: Bangladesh 88, Sri Lanka 80
• Sri Lanka win 3-0: Bangladesh 86, Sri Lanka 82
