Bangladesh who lost to India by 25 runs on Saturday, must win to keep their hopes alive of qualifying for the Super Eights. A defeat will send them packing from the 12-nation tournament.

Australia v Sri Lanka – Must win game for Australia against Sri Lanka
After receiving the beating by the hand of two West Indian batmen in their first game that causes the match and now they are in similar situation or we can say tougher situation than 2007 t20 world cup when they take on Sri Lanka in their second round-robin match.
The Australians, stunned by a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of the West Indies on Saturday following Chris Gayle's explosive 88 off 50 balls, cannot afford another loss. However a win also here could not guarantee their place in the Super Eight stage because of net run rate factor. They need to beat Sri Lanka by big margin to stay alive in the tournament.
The defeat against the West Indies was Australia's fourth Twenty20 loss in a row. That means One day and Test champion Australian team are finding difficulty in coping with shortest version of the game.
On the other hand Sri Lankan team will look to register a win against Aussie to knockout them out of the tournament.
Likely Playing XII for both teams (Match is schedule to begin at India Time on 8th Of June)
Australia Squad: David Warner, Shane Watson, Ricky Ponting (Capttain), Michael Clarke, David Hussey, Michael Hussey, Brad Haddin (WK), James Hopes, Ben Hilfenhaus, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Bracken.
