Share

The toss for the Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka clash in Bristol has been delayed due to rain.

Lasith Malinga will leave the Sri Lankan team following their World Cup Game against Bangladesh, which will be played in Bristol today, following the death of his mother-in-law.

"I know logistically it would have caused problems. They have got tickets to see a game of cricket and it would be up to them if they can get there the day after".

Sri Lanka find themselves completely without momentum in this tournament given their game against Pakistan - also staged here - last Friday was also washed out. "I know that it would have been hard, but we have got quite a lot of time in between games, and if we have got to travel a day later, then so be it", he said. 'If you know the English weather, we are sadly going to get a lot of rain, ' he said.

Rhodes expects star allrounder Shakib Al Hasan, who hurt a thigh muscle on Saturday while scoring a century against England, to be available to play the West Indies after another five days of recuperation.

"It's enough for a club like us to make a significant difference", added Brown, who said all three World Cup matches in Bristol had been 11,500 sell-outs.

On Monday, skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza said back-to-back defeats to New Zealand and hosts England might have jeopardised their prospects of reaching the semi-finals, but the task is merely hard and not impossible if they win the remaining matches.

"Do I think it's £50,000 ($63,588, 56,000 euros)?" But I think we don't want to win our points freely. So we are well aware of what they have got and we know what's coming and we've got some plans to try and deal with that.

"We're very, very optimistic that the treatment that he'll get this week and the way that he can recover well; we're very optimistic that he can play in that next game against West Indies".

"We keep planning and doing the right things and hopefully we can play a game".
