The 10th match of Men’s Cricket in the 2019 South Asian Games will be played between Bangladesh Under-23s and Sri Lanka Under-23s at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground in Kirtipur.
The match starts at 9:15 AM local time (3:15 AM GMT) (8:45 AM IST).
There are no chances of rain and it is expected to be a perfect day for a cricket match. However, the temperature is expected to range between 19 and 22 Degree Celsius according to Accuweather.
The wicket at Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground will most likely go in favour of batsmen according to the trends being followed in the tournament. But, spinners will also play an important role in the later part of the game. However, the winning the toss will look to bat because it seems like teams are finding it difficult to chase at this venue.
