India vs Sri Lanka ICC World Cup 2023 match is scheduled to take place on November 2 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. One of the most crowd-pulling stadiums in India, Wankhede will witness the two neighbours playing against each other to score a win. India, already in the top 4 in the points table with 12 points, has had a phenomenal journey this World Cup. Despite Hardik Pandya’s absence, India has managed to win matches against last World Cup season’s finalists, New Zealand and England. Both India and Sri Lanka will be playing their 7th match of the tournament today. Both the teams have previously played at the same venue during the 2011 World Cup Finals, when then-skipper MS Dhoni led India to a win.
Sri Lanka, one of the decent teams, has not been able to perform with its best abilities in this World Cup. It could score only 2 wins out of the previous matches and currently sits at the 8th spot in the points table. With a low run rate as well as points, it is highly unlikely for the team to qualify for the semi-finals.
India, on the other hand, is the only team with an unbeatable winning streak in all its matches. While Hardik Pandya has not been able to be a part of the team, captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been doing their parts to drag the team to a winning score. India is currently enjoying one of the best bowling lineups, with Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Siraj and Ravindra Jadeja.
The match is scheduled to begin at 2 pm IST, while the toss will take place at 1:30 pm IST on November 2.
