Team Bangladesh tops the ICC Cricket World Cup super league’s standings

After winning the first two games of the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka at home, Bangladesh has now topped the ICC Cricket World Cup’s super standings.

On Friday, Bangladesh defeated the visitors with a margin of 103 runs( DLS method) and won the second game of the three-match series, sparing another game that is yet to happen on Friday.

‘Tigers’ who had won the series opener against the Lankans won the toss and opted to bat first.  Even though Bangladesh’s Mushfiqur Rahim scored a brilliant 125 off 127 balls under the pressure, the hosts could only add 246 to their total from 48.1 overs as  Dusmantha Chameera and Lakshan Sandakan put up a mighty show as they picked three wickets each. 

Lankans who came in to bat with a positive note didn’t see any change in the result of the game from their previous one as they failed to chase down the given target. Thanks to Mehindy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman who picked three wickets each and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan who picked two wickets at important intervals. With this Sri Lanka was batting on 140 losing nine wickets from 40 overs. But, umpires called off the game as the rain-curtailed to end the play. As Lanka was short of 103 runs through the DLS method, the Bangladesh side was declared the winner of the game. 

With this, Bangladesh has now topped the table of the ICC world cup’s super standings as they have won five games out of eight played and have 50 points in their pocket. England and Pakistan are next on the table having 40 points each playing nine and six games and have won four games respectively.

India is placed at sixth on the table as they have won three out of six played which tallies 30 points.
