India will clash against their southern neighbours Sri Lanka in what will be the last group match for both the teams at the World Cup 2019 in Leeds on Saturday. Having already qualified for the semi-finals, India will look to fine-tune their still troublesome middle-order, while on the other hand, Sri Lanka who are already out of contention for a place in the last-4 would look to bow out on a high by beating their opponents at Headingley. History is also on SL’s side but recently India have held the upper hand.
Sri Lanka are one of the few teams in the World Cup 2019 to have a favourable win-loss against India in the history of the tournament. Of the 8 times the two sides have faced each other in World Cups, Sri Lanka have emerged winners on 4 occasions to India’s 3 with one match yielding no result.
