SL vs Ind: Match Preview

WC Match Previews

After, another win in the tournament, India will look to capitalise and take the momentum with them to the semi-finals. While Srilanka, who denied West Indies another win, they look to give Malinga a fitting farewell. While comparing both the sides, India looks much better on all the fronts but you can’t rule Srilanka out in such a big tournament. So, expect this match to be a rather more exciting and do keep a eye on the Australia-South Africa as it will impact the match-ups for the semi-finals.

Pitch- The match will be played at Headingley. The same pitch will be used on which West Indies played Afghanistan on 4 July. So, expect the ball to turn a bit more this time around.

Weather- A cloudy day with a high of 21 degrees celsius and a low of 11 degrees celsius is expected.
