India vs. Sri Lanka: ICC World Cup Match 44 Preview
India vs. Sri Lanka: ICC World Cup Match 44 Preview

India will aim for the topmost position of the table as they take on Sri Lanka in their last league encounter at Leeds. A win in this match will take them to 15 points. However, they need the result of the Australia-South Africa encounter to go in their way too in order to climb to the top of the order. Australia currently sit pretty at the top with 14 points and a loss for them in this match will open India's way to the top of the table.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, are already out of the semifinal race but would like to give their fans something to cheer for in their last World Cup 2019 match. They would like to end it on a good note by carrying the momentum they gained in the last match against the Windies which they won by 23 runs.

A lot of changes are expected for India in this match as this encounter gives them the chance to test out some of their players ahead of the all-important semifinals. Mayank Agarwal is one of them who looks all set to open the innings for India. He may walk into the XI in place of Dinesh Karthik.

Weather and Pitch Conditions: Bright and Sunny weather awaits. The pitch is expected to be good for batting but it can also give some assistance to the spinners and the bowlers having good variations in particular.
