Before the two sides kick off the limited-overs series, here are the likely XIs for both with which they might opt to take the field with. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh, 1st ODI
Top order: Tamim Iqbal will start things off with Soumya Sarkar. Though the team has the option of Imrul Kayes, Sarkar performed well in the recently concluded Test series, which might keep him ahead of Kayes, who had failed in the same. Tamim is the highest run-getter for Bangladesh across formats and, with both these players, the opening pair will be strong enough to give them a good start. At No. 3 will be another talented batsman Sabbir Rahman. Sabbir has been scoring runs consistently in the recent past and will be expected to do justice to the coveted No. 3 position.
Captain Upul Tharanga is expected to open for Sri Lanka with Niroshan Dickwella. Dickwella batted well in the Test series and will be expected to carry forward that form. However, Tharanga has not been up to the mark and will be expected to pull off an inspiring knock to lead the team from front. Kusal Mendis, who bats at No. 3 for Sri Lanka, had a successful Test series and scored a double-century. A lot of hopes will be on this batsman to score big for Sri Lanka.
