Sri Lanka are placed eighth with 20 percentage of points, Bangladesh are yet to open their account and are ninth.

Bangladesh have all the incentives. If they win the series 2-0, the visitors leapfrog Sri Lanka to eighth. Even if Bangladesh win 1-0 and second Test match is tied then also they would move up Lanka.

For Sri Lanka a 2-0 will help them jump to the sixth place alongside West Indies.
Sri Lanka has won 16 of its 20 cricket tests against Bangladesh and lost only once — at Colombo in 2017 — although three of the last eight matches have ended in a draw.

Hosts Sri Lanka have lost five consecutive matches to slide down the standings.

However, the hosts ended their losing streak  when they managed to drew both Tests against West Indies in Antigua.
