Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, and Shreyas Iyer helped Team India score 357 runs in 50 overs against Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Dilshan Madushanka was the highlight of the bowlers, becoming only the fourth Sri Lankan to take a fifer at the ODI World Cup.
Earlier, Sri Lanka won the toss and skipper Kusal Mendis elected to bowl first, which enraged the home crowd. India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, also stated that if they had won the toss, they would have batted first. The Indian team has remained unchanged. Rohit Sharma and his team enter the contest as favourites, having won six consecutive games. In their previous match, they thrashed defending champion England by 100 runs.
After defeating England at the Chinnaswamy Stadium last week, Sri Lanka suffered a setback against Afghanistan in Pune.The Kusal Mendis-led team has only two victories from six matches, and with the competition nearing its conclusion, chances of reaching the semifinals are fading.
