IND vs SL Team Previews


The hosts are in exceptional form in this tournament and are the only team that is undefeated after playing 6 matches. India is currently leading the points table and a win in this match takes them to the semifinals.  Skipper Rohit Sharma continued with his good batting form on Sunday against England as he registered his 3rd 50+ score of the tournament.

In a rare failure, Virat Kohli was dismissed for a duck while Shubman Gill was back in the dugout for 9. However, Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul stepped up with gritty knocks. With most of the batsmen in fine form, India will hope to post a massive total if they bat first.

The team’s bowling has been another highlight of its performance so far. While Jasprit Bumrah is the leading wicket-taker for them, Mohammed Shami has been exceptional in the last 2 matches, picking up 9 wickets. The two spinners, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav have kept things tight in the middle overs.

Overall, India has found an excellent balance of players and is likely to put up another excellent show in this match.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka was stunned by Afghanistan on Monday as the team crashed to its 4th defeat in 6 matches. Sri Lanka is currently 6th on the points table with 4 points. With just 3 more matches to go for them, Sri Lanka will need to win each one of them to keep its qualification hopes alive. And even if they do win, their promotion hopes hinge on the outcome of other teams’ results.

The injuries that marred the squad before the start of the tournament, as well as the absence of the key players including Wanindu Hasaranga, have heavily affected the team’s prospects. Sadeera Samarawickrama and Pathum Nissanka have been impressive with the bat, with the former being the top run-getter for the team.

Nissanka has scored 4 half-centuries in the last 5 matches and will look to give the team a strong start along with Chamika Karunaratne. Kusal Mendis, while being an extremely talented batsman, has been patchy in his performances.

The lower order has outright failed to give the team a strong finish. Dilshan Madushanka is the pick of the bowlers with 13 wickets. However, the seamers at the other end, Kasun Rajitha and Lahiru Kumara have been quite expensive.

There is tremendous pressure on Maheesh Theekshana to perform but he has managed just 3 wickets so far.
