The match between India and Sri Lanka will be a loud cry out as both would try to dominate each other after losing to the Australians in the recently concluded Tri-Nation Commonwealth Bank Series cricket. India's whole tour was a disaster and had to come back as it did not qualify to play the three finals of the CB series ODI, which Sri Lanka snatched from India.
That is another thing that Sri Lanka despite holding on to their feet, lost the CB series three finals to Australia. Therefore today's match is important both for India and Sri Lanka to take a winning start here in Bangladesh and show their resolve and resilience to carry on through the tournament.
India and Sri Lanka have so far played six ODIs on the Bangladesh soil, and Sri Lanka has won four. As for the Asia Cup, India have won five times out of nine tournaments held so far. Sri Lanka is not far behind for having won the Asia Cup title four times. Pakistan has lifted the trophy only once.
Today's match is being played at Shere Bangla Stadium, Mirpur and will commence at 8:00 GMT (14:00 Local time)
