The 33rd match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 will be played between India and Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on November 2. India have won all their six matches so far and are right at the top of the points table. They need just one more win to warrant themselves a place in the semi-finals. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, are seventh in the rankings, having won only two of their six matches. To qualify for the semi-finals, not only do they need all their remaining three games, but also depend on the result of other teams.
India defeated defending champions England by 100 runs in their previous game. Rohit Sharma (87), KL Rahul (39) and Suryakumar Yadav (49) propelled India to 229. This was followed by a match-winning performance by pace duo Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami, who picked up seven wickets between themselves and helped bowl out England for only 129.
Sri Lanka played Afghanistan in their last match, which they lost by seven wickets. Sadeera Samarawickrama (86), Pathum Nissanka (46) and Kusal Mendis (39) helped Sri Lanka post a total of 241 runs, which the bowlers were not able to defend. Afghanistan chased down the target effortlessly.
