Put into bat first, the duo have put 131 afer 20 overs, but rain has stopped their charge for the time being.

In-form Hope is unbeaten on 65 while Ambris is not out on 59.

Bangladesh are without key player Shakib Al Hasan, who is nursing a back injury.

The teams played twice in the group stages, the Tigers winning both the games easily, but the final till now looks a different stroy.
