After a close defeat from Pakistan, India is now put in a hard situation in the Super Four stage – forcing them to win tonight’s fixture against Sri Lanka to be saving their spot for the final.
They had played some good cricket in the league stage but failed to carry forward that against Pakistan in the second match. Rohit Sharma was made to lose his cool a couple of times, as Pakistan was able to leverage India’s mistakes for their win.
Thus, India may rope in the most experienced player – Ravichandran Ashwin, tonight into their team, hoping the spinner may play thoughtfully against Sri Lankan batsmen, who have a good number of right and left combinations.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, may leverage their left handers in both pace and spin bowling to mark their success against India, who seem to be struggling against left handers in most of their matches. Considering all these here’s what tonight’s squads may look like;
