World Cup 2019: Sri Lanka vs India, Match Preview
India will square off against Sri Lanka in the penultimate league match of the 2019 World Cup. Having sealed their semi-final berth, Team India will now be looking to go to the top of the table with another triumph.
Virat Kohli's men have set the bar high in this tournament and will be hoping to go all the way. If Australia fail to win their final game against South Africa and India secure a victory against Sri Lanka, the Men in Blue will seal top spot in the points table and book a semifinal berth with New Zealand.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, started their World Cup campaign in poor fashion but gathered steam as the tournament progressed. They are no longer in contention for a spot in the semifinals, but will look to end the tournament on a high.
