Full Details of Match
The 44th match of men cricket world cup is to be played between India and Sri Lanka at Headingley, Leeds. Round Robin matches are almost over and we will be heading to the knockout round where 4 qualified teams will fight for the trophy.
Team India is the strongest side in the world cup so far and they are considered as the favourites for the world cup trophy. Apart from that loss against England, they have looked solid. They have brilliant with bat and ball and executing their plans really well. They will be looking to clear their flaws before entering into the knockout round.
Their strong batting line up is their major strength. Rohit Sharma and Kl Rahul are giving India a great every time and helping to score 300 above score most of the times. Rohit Sharma is the shining star in the tournament so far as he is the leading run scorer in the tournament. He has scored 544 runs with an average of 90.67 and will be hoping to play the same way in the later stage of the tournament. They have some concerns to rectify and hopefully, it will be rectified against Sri Lanka.
India’s bowling unit is doing exceptionally well for their team. Due to bowling, they have managed to win 6 games out of 7 matches. Fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami are bowling at a good pace and picking up wickets whenever the team needs a wicket. Mohammad Shami has played just 4 matches in the tournament so far and has managed to take 14 wickets with an average of 13.79 which is brilliant for a fast bowler.JAsprit Bumrah gives them a wicket whenever the team needs it. He is a saviour of the team and will be hoping to make a huge impact in the knockout matches.
Sri Lanka started the tournament in a very bad manner. They lost their first match against New Zealand after being bowled out for 136 runs.2 washout matches have not allowed them to collect points. Overall their players didn’t look convincing in the tournament. They are heavily dependent on two or three players in the team.
Their batsmen looked out of form and only two or three batsmen have managed to go past 50. In their last match against West Indies, Avishka Fernando played an absolute gem of an innings and scored a brilliant knock of 104 runs in 103 balls. He is Sri Lanka’s future star batsman. Kusal Perera also looked good and scored 69 runs in 51 balls. Their balling is heavily dependent on their veteran bowler Lasith Malinga as he has managed to pick up 12 wickets in 6 matches played. He has been doing great for them and will be looking to repeat the same performance against India also. Sri Lanka will try very hard to end their journey on a good note.

Pitch report and weather forecasting
There might be slight chances of rain to disrupt game but the weather has stayed good in recent days. The pitch will be as same as what was for Afghanistan and West Indies match. It will be a slower wicket and continue to slow as the game progresses.
According to us team winning the toss should bat first as the pitch will be on the slower side in the second innings and it will be hard for the batsman to score runs freely. We are expecting a lot of slower balls from the fast bowlers.
