Pitch Condition: The team batting under lights may have to deal with extra pace and good carry, better, according to Bangladesh bowling coach Heath Streak, than what the batsmen may face in the afternoon session. There is very little chance of weather interrupting the game, with temperature forecast to be in the mid-twenties throughout the day.
Sangakkara will become the third Sri Lankan after Mahela and Jayasuriya to play 400 ODIs, and the fourth overall.
This is Bangladeshs first match at the MCG while Sri Lanka have won six out of their 17 ODIs here.
Mahela is 91 runs short of becoming Sri Lanka's highest run-scorer in World Cups, only behind Jayasuriya's 1165 runs.
