If you're wondering about SL vs BAN where to watch in the 2023 Asia Cup clash, you're in the right place as we bring you all the broadcast and live streaming details.
The co-hosts Sri Lanka are the defending Asia Cup champions, having won the trophy last year in the Twenty20 format. ODI cricket is a different ball game and they'll be hoping to repeat the success. Bangladesh have never won a title and they'll be desperate to taste some success.
The two teams are placed in Group B alongside Afghanistan, with the top two sides advancing through to Super 4. The last time these two rivals faced each other in the fifty-over format was in a three-match series back in 2021 as a part of the ODI Super League. Bangladesh won the first game by 33 runs before hammering the opponents by 103 runs in a rain-shortened game. Sri Lanka clinched the third game by 97 runs to avoid a clean sweep.
Sri Lanka failed to qualify for the 2023 ODI World Cup through the Super League and they had to go through the Qualifiers in July. They eased past that stage with an undefeated streak, winning four games in Group B before winning all three in the Super Six.
On the other hand, Bangladesh qualified directly, and recently hosted Afghanistan in July for a three-match series, which they lost by 2-1 after going down in the first two games.
With all three teams looking competitive in the group, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will be hoping to get their Asia Cup campaign off to a winning start.
