Heavy rains delayed the start of the World Cup match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka here Tuesday. With incessant rain lashing the ground here, the toss was delayed. Sri Lanka’s previous game against Pakistan was called off due to heavy rain and the two teams were forced to split points. They had lost to New Zealand by 10 wickets and brought their campaign back with a 34-run victory against Afghanistan.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, defeated South Africa by 21-runs in their opening match before losing to England by 106 runs and to New Zealand by two wickets.
