SL 3/4; Bumrah, Siraj blow SL top order away

India vs Sri Lanka World Cup LIVE: Twelve years after lifting their second Cricket World Cup trophy, India will take on Sri Lanka in another World Cup match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, albeit a pole vault rather than an encore.

If that World Cup final was a battle of titans, today’s is, more or less, a battle of odds. India are assured of a place in the semi-finals and Sri Lanka have lost more than they have won.

With six wins out of six, India have displayed the qualities of a champion who has staged many spectacular comebacks – such as the one against England on Sunday.

At the other end of the spectrum, there is no pressure on Sri Lanka but they have faded more often than not in this World Cup after winning the qualification tournament.

Injuries and the unavailability of key players are a big letdown, with the prospects of the young brigade standing up against high-quality opponents such as India.


India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya.

Sri Lanka: Kusal Mendis (c&wk), Kusal Perera, Pathum Nissanka, Lahiru Kumara, Dimuth Karunaratne, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Charith Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Maheesh Theekshana, Dunith Wellalage, Kasun Rajitha, Angelo Mathews, Dilshan Madushanka, Charith Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva.
