India is now second on the league table and is probable to continue there even if it loses the previous match to Sri Lanka. Though, if Australia loses its last competition to South Africa then India could shift up to the top-spot and perhaps avoid England in the semi-final period.
For Sri Lanka, this match is one more chance to try and spend in its cricket. A win beside India could help it close on 10 points, which is additional than what anybody expected of them prior to the ICC World Cup 2019 started. They have exposed a couple of players to watch out for in the prospect and would worship to close with a win alongside the number one ranked ODI state in the world.
Sri Lanka has also been conquered by India in current times. It has vanished 12 out of the last 14 matches beside India and that includes two 5-0 series results. For motivation, Sri Lanka must look reverse to the Champions Trophy 2017 when Sri Lanka managed to pull off a extraordinary chase and win alongside all odds.
To win alongside India, not only should players like Perera, Fernando, Mendis, and Matthews score runs but the bowling attack also should execute improved than it has so far.
A mixture of injuries, deprived form, and age has destined that Sri Lanka has one of the weakest bowling attacks in the competition. The research of annoying out Jeffrey Vandersay alongside the West Indies was not very victorious. He ended up generous 50 runs in seven overs and could not be trusted to bowl out his overs.
India will not desire to go into its semi-final with a defeat. In fact, except there is an injury anxiety to one of the players, we are certain that India will play its most excellent eleven.
