India and Sri Lanka will face off each other in the ICC world cup, it’s going to be a treat for the cricket fans. Sri Lanka and India have been playing cricket with each other for a long time now. In English conditions it will be a test for both the teams, India however being the stronger team form the two, will have an edge over Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka after the 2015 world cup event has been in remodeling stage, their star players left after that tournament. Right now Sri Lanka doesn’t have the star studded dressing room as of India. They are in demise and are looking to fight and reclaim their lost glory. Indian team however will be looking for a win against the islanders.
Head to head in ODI international
India has had the better of Sri Lanka in 90 matches and have lost 56 times at the hands of the Sri Lanka team. Clearly the record suggests that the Indian cricket team has been performing better then Sri Lankan team in their encounters. Sri Lanka has been showing lack luster performance in the last 2-3 years as their main key players have retired from the international cricket. Current Sri Lankan team lacks the quality batting line up and the big guns as they head into this world event. Their bowling is also on the weaker side, they lack real fast bowlers. Their pace attack relies on medium pacers and that is not good enough in today’s game. Real pace is absolutely vital in batting conditions to threaten the opposing batting line up. They need to perform in all three departments in order to produce a competitive game against India.
Indian cricket team on the other hand is a favorite to win the world cup 2019. Indian cricket team is a compact team which has all its corners covered, they are leaving nothing to chance. Their batting is up to the mark along with their fielding. Indian bowling attack has improved by leaps and bounds in the last 5 years or so. They are a complete team that are determined to prove their supremacy in international cricket by winning the ICC world cup event later this summer in England.
India should be able to clinch this victory against the mediocre side of Sri Lankan cricket team. Match will be played in Leeds which is most likely to be dominated by the Indian cricket team.
