India vs Sri Lanka World Cup 2023: At Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to field first. In his home ground, Rohit Sharma expressed his happiness with the decision and stated that he would have chosen to bat first.
Due to Sri Lanka’s decision, India’s opening duo of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill began the batting. In the first over of the contest, Virat Kohli was on the crease after Rohit left early.
The final India Cup Final encounter between IND and SL saw Rohit’s team easily defeat their neighbors thanks to a goal from Mohammed Siraj.
With six straight victories, Rohit Sharma’s India are still the only team undefeated in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. The Men in Blue aim to make history by being the first squad in the competition to go to the semifinals.
Shreyas Iyer, who will be taking on the Lankans on home soil, will be the main focus of attention due to his 134 runs at an average of 33.50 in six previous matches. This year’s World Cup hasn’t seen Shreyas light up the field; instead, opposing teams have been focusing on his well-known vulnerability to short deliveries.
Sri Lanka’s Rollercoaster Journey
Sri Lanka has seen a wild ride thus far in a tournament marred by injuries.Following three straight losses to South Africa, Pakistan, and Australia, the Lankans recuperated to win two of their following three games, including one over the shielding title holders, Britain. In any case, their desires of making the World Cup were seriously harmed by a misfortune to Afghanistan in their latest game.
