India can seal their qualification to the semi-final of the Cricket World Cup with victory against Sri Lanka on Thursday.

India have won all six of their matches in the tournament so far, and need just one more victory to ensure their place in the final four. Sri Lanka also need the win to keep their slim hopes of qualification alive.

Afghanistan to keep unlikely qualification hopes alive

Afghanistan could propel themselves into the qualification reckoning with a win over Netherlands on Friday. Afghanistan have overperformed in this tournament, winning three of their six matches, including shock wins over England and Pakistan.

Netherlands have pulled off two shocks of their own, beating Bangladesh and South Africa in massive underdog victories. They remain the only two wins for the Dutch side though, and they’ll need another victory here to keep their own faint hopes of making the semi-finals alive.

Afganistan are the favourites to claim the win here and they should have enough to claim the win and keep their underdog story rolling.
