World Cup 2019: As India Faces Sri Lanka Top Spot The Main Aim
Sri Lanka vs India : Both Team Eye In A Race To Finish On Top Of Points Table In World Cup 2019
Team India that is being led by Virat Kohli will lock horns with Dimuth Karunaratne’s Sri Lankan Team in match 44 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. This is a crucial match for both the teams as they vie for the top spot. The India vs Sri Lanka match will be played at Headingley, Leeds. It will begin from 3 pm IST with the toss scheduled at 2.30 pm IST.
India will also have a final chance, ahead of the semi-finals, to reassess their problems and work on the middle-order.
The Men in Blue sealed their place in the last four after a 28-run win over Bangladesh on Tuesday. Today India will take on Sri Lanka and a win here can set them up for a semi-final clash against New Zealand. However, if Australia manage to win their last league encounter against South Africa later in the day, then India will face England in the semi-final match.
Meanwhile, for Sri Lanka, this match is just about playing for pride. Despite beating England by 20 runs, the Lankan Lions’ batting was once again tested after collapsing to 203 against South Africa in their next match, eventually losing by nine wickets. However, a maiden ODI century from Avishka Fernando brought some smiles in the Lankan camp as they defeated West Indies in their previous encounter on Monday.
