ICC World Cup 2019, London: Sri Lanka face win-less Windies in a 39 th match for a place in semis at Chester-le-Street here on Monday!
In their last match, Sri Lanka pulled off an upset by shocking hosts England to stay alive in the tournament. But the Lankans heavily depended on Kusal Perera who was a sole run scorer for Sri Lanka in terms of batting.
On the other hand, Windies remained winless for past six matches which resulted in early elimination from the tournament.
Sri Lanka Team Updates :
In the last match, when England got victorious over India, it has reduced Sri Lanka’s chances of qualifying for the last four. So for now, they need to win remaining two fixtures and hope their competitors to lose in their next matches.
So firstly, Sri Lanka needs to beat Windies to keep their semis chances alive. It is unlikely for them to qualify, as they have less run-rate when compared to other teams.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka lost their last match by nine wickets to South Africa at the same venue. Because of their poor batting unit, they paid the huge price against South Africa. Except for Kusal Perera, none of the batsman able to score against strong Proteas bowling line-up.
West Indies Team Updates :
West Indies remained win-less form the past six matches in the tournament. They suffered huge losses despite having match winners in the form of Gayle, Hetmyer, Hope, and Brathwaite.
Due to their poor batting performance and Andre Russell’s injury, they failed miserably and knocked out of the competition. Despite losses, we cannot deny the fact that Windies has some of the big hitters and stroke makers.
So against an inconsistent Sri Lankan bowling line up, Gayle could smash them to the core. It will be interesting to watch how these Caribbean team could upset Lankans in this match.
Venue: Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street
No rain is expected for this match. But there will be some fresh breeze which may provide little showers to the game.
As we expect some little rain to the match, the pace bowlers might get considerable help from the pitch due to overcast conditions. So batsman will find extremely difficult to face bowlers as the pitch provides enough turn for pacers.
