As we move into the final match-day of the 2019 ICC World Cup, the Indian team is set to square off with Sri Lanka. Having sealed their semi-final’s berth, Team India would be eyeing to go top of the ladder with another triumph. Kohli & Co have set the tone high in this tournament and will be hoping to go all the way in England. If Australia fails to win their final game against South Africa, India will have the golden opportunity to take the top spot in the points table.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka started their World Cup campaign as the most inexperienced side but eventually picked up their tempo in the latter half of the tournament. Malinga spearheaded the bowling attack to make a comeback in this competition. Though they are out to the semi-finals contention, Sri Lanka will try to end their World campaign on a high.
