Bangladesh will ascend to the top of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League standings if they can secure a win against visitors Sri Lanka in the second ODI of the series at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Tuesday.

Bangladesh are currently at number four in the table but have equal 40 points with England, Pakistan and Australia. The Tigers bagged their fourth win in the league in seven games, defeating Sri Lanka in the first match of the three-match ODI series at SBNS on Sunday. The previous three wins for Bangladesh had come against West Indies at home earlier this year.

Despite a late assault by Sri Lanka late middle order batsman Wanindu Hasaranga, Bangladesh held strong with a sensational bowling display and registered a 33-run win over their South Asian opponents. Bangladesh off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz had led the pack with 4 scalps for 30 runs while left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rehman complemented the effort with his return of 3 for 34.
