Bangladesh will be up against Sri Lanka in the Warm-up game of the T20 World Cup 2021 on Tuesday. Bangladesh are brimming with confidence having won their last 3 T20I series. On their home soil, they have beaten Australia and New Zealand comfortably by 4-1 and 3-2 respectively. The conditions in UAE are entirely different than in Bangladesh and they need to get used to it.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, got off an excellent start to their tour. They beat Oman in the two-match T20 series by 2-0. They are still under transition and there is still plenty of work that needs to be done. They are hopeful of qualifying for the Group stages in the T20 World Cup.
