In the upcoming clash of Super 4 Match 2 in Asia Cup 2023, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are set to face off this Saturday. This marks the second game of the Super 4 phase, and all the action will now be taking place in Sri Lanka.

In their previous encounter against Bangladesh, Sri Lanka successfully chased down the target with five wickets to spare. They continued their winning streak in the second game, narrowly defeating Afghanistan by a mere two runs in an exhilarating match held at Pakistan's Gaddafi Stadium. This triumph propelled the defending champions, Sri Lanka, into the Super Four stage.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, commenced their Asia Cup journey on a shaky note with a loss to co-hosts Sri Lanka by five wickets in their initial encounter. However, they made a remarkable comeback in their final group-stage match against Afghanistan. Bangladesh secured an impressive 89-run victory, fueled by centuries from Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Najmul Hossain Shanto, thereby securing their spot in the Super Four stage.

SL vs BAN - R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo Pitch Report:

The pitch at R Premadasa Stadium has consistently been a boon for spinners. The pitch gradually loses its pace, posing challenges for batsmen seeking to score freely. Conversely, fast bowlers frequently find it challenging to leave a significant mark on this particular surface. Despite these difficulties, batsmen who exhibit patience and skill can accumulate a considerable number of runs, setting the stage for an engaging and closely fought contest.
