IND vs SL Preview:
- Captain Rohit Sharma displayed his batting prowess by scoring 87 runs from 101 balls in Match 29 against England. The right-handed batsman has already notched up one century and two additional scores of fifty or more in the competition. With an impressive ODI batting average of 49.34 from 249 innings, he is our top choice to be India’s leading run-scorer against Sri Lanka.
- Mohammed Shami earned his place in the team following Hardik Pandya’s injury and has made the most of the opportunity, claiming 9 wickets from 102 balls. He stands as a strong contender to be India’s top wicket-taker in this game.
- Pathum Nissanka has exhibited his batting prowess in ODIs, maintaining an average of 40.11, and has been particularly impressive at the top of the order in this tournament. The right-handed batsman is a dependable presence for Sri Lanka, and we predict he will be their highest run-scorer in this fixture.
- Dilshan Madushanka has had a stellar competition, consistently taking at least 2 wickets in five of the six Sri Lanka matches. We anticipate the opening bowler to be Sri Lanka’s leading wicket-taker against India.
- Considering Mohammed Shami’s exceptional accuracy, we recommend placing your faith in him to take more than 1.5 wickets in this game

Anticipate a minimum temperature of 30 degrees throughout Thursday’s game. Humidity levels are set to rise gradually during both the first and second innings of the match.
The Wankhede Stadium has crafted a favorable batting surface, offering ample pace and bounce. Fast bowlers can expect excellent carry from this pitch, and a competitive score is likely to hover around the 370-375 mark.
In the 2023 Cricket World Cup, the team batting first has secured comfortable victories in both matches held at this venue. Therefore, we anticipate that both captains, if they win the toss for this game, will opt to bat first.
IND vs SL Team NEWS:
IND Team News:
Rohit Sharma’s team has adhered to a strategy of making minimal alterations throughout the tournament. The only change in personnel thus far has been due to Hardik Pandya’s injury. Given the outstanding form of many players and the absence of new injury concerns, we anticipate that there won’t be any changes in the playing XI for this upcoming game.
SL Team News:
Sri Lanka made two alterations in their lineup before their defeat against Afghanistan. Kusal Perera and Lahiru Kumara were omitted from the side, and Dimuth Karunaratne was slotted in at the top of the order. Additionally, pace bowler Dushmantha Chameera made his return to the team after recovering from an injury, marking his first appearance since the recovery.

It would be quite unexpected if India were to stumble in this match, given their consistent strength throughout the tournament, and Sri Lanka’s recent inability to overcome Afghanistan. Our forecast is that India will dominate both with their batting and bowling, while Sri Lanka may face difficulties. Throughout the competition, no team has managed to truly challenge India, and we don’t anticipate that changing in this particular fixture. Our prediction is in favor of India securing the victory on Thursday in Mumbai.
