<p>With the World Cup approaching, host Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will begin their three-match Twenty20 cricket series on Monday.</p>

<p>“Every game is important because we have eight to eleven matches before the World Cup,” Najmul Hossain Shanto, the captain of Bangladesh, said. “Momentum is crucial at all times.”</p>
<p>The West Indies and the United States will share co-hosting duties for the June 4–30 T20 World Cup.</p>
<p>Due to an eye issue, Bangladesh’s important all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan, will be sidelined for the whole of the series against Sri Lanka. Bangladesh subsequently drew a series in New Zealand after Shakib guided his team to a sweeping three-match T20 series against world champion England in 2022. Bangladesh has won all five of the previous bilateral series overall.</p>
<p>The two sides are playing for the first time since Angelo Mathews of Sri Lanka was controversially dismissed during the 50-over World Cup, making history as the first batsman to be timed out in international cricket.</p>
<p>Chris Silverwood, the coach of Sri Lanka, said that he only wants to concentrate on the next series.</p>
<p>“For me, the past is history; it’s no longer relevant,” Silverwood said. “We’re preparing for the World Cup.”</p>
<p>Due to a suspension, Sri Lanka captain Wanindu Hasaranga will miss the first two games. Charith Asalanka will be the team’s leader in his absence.</p>
