Preview

The competition gets into an intense fight as India faces Sri Lanka in the 33rd match of the World Cup ODI 2023. The game is scheduled at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Thursday, November 2. 

Both sides have a levelled record of 4 wins each off 9 games with 1 match abandoned in Cricket World Cups. In their last fixture, the Lankan side faced a humiliating defeat in the ODI Asia Series Final by 10 wickets margin. 

The host side enters this battle with a six-match unbeaten streak being on the top of the table. Their last match was against the defending champions England, where they managed to post a below-par target of 229 runs for the loss of 9 wickets. But in the second half, the Indian bowlers displayed a phenomenal performance to restrict the champion side to a score of only 129 runs, hence clinching a huge 100-run victory. The standout performers of the match were skipper Rohit Sharma who smashed 87 runs along with Suryakumar Yadav who came it at the right time to support the lower batting order with his crucial 49 runs knock. The bowling unit was led by the Indian veteran Mohammed Shami who demonstrated his exceptional bowling skills with his impressive 4-wicket haul.

Sri Lanka on the other hand, is on the verge of getting eliminated as of now they have won only 2 of their 6 fixtures. They are currently sitting in the seventh place in the points table. The Islanders faced off against Afghanistan in the last game. While batting first, they posted a competitive total of 241 runs but the Afghan side chased down the target having seven wickets to spare. Now Sri Lanka is in a must-win situation to sustain themselves in this tournament. Their key players namely Kusal Mendis, Pathum Nissanka and Dilshan Madhushanka have to exhibit their exceptional performances to keep Sri Lanka’s hopes alive in this tournament.
