India to seal qualification passage

India have shown their might in the tournament so far, sweeping aside every team that has stood in their way. Their latest victory was a convincing 100 run victory over England, a result that saw England’s World Cup campaign come to an end.

Sri Lanka have won two of their six matches, but losses against Afghanistan and Pakistan, both winnable games, have cost them dearly. They know enter their toughest match of the tournament knowing that anything less than a win will see their chances of qualification all but disappear.

India are overwhelming favourites to win this match, and it should be another convincing victory for the host nation.
