SriLanka vs India 44th Match BluePrint ICC Cricket World Cup

Match Preview Sri Lanka is out of the World Cup Semi-Finals but, now they are performing very well. The bowling unit fully depends on Lasith Malinga. Other bowlers are totally out of form in the whole series. India will look to win today match with high run-rate. Because if they finish the group stage in the first place then Semi-Finals will be played against NZ or PAK. To win against India, not only must players like Perera, Fernando, Mendis, and Matthews score runs but the bowling attack also must perform better than it has so far.

Pakistan vs Bangladesh 43rd Match BluePrint ICC Cricket World Cup

Match Preview Pakistan will have an improbable task of making it to the semifinals of the ongoing World Cup when they take on Bangladesh in the final group stage game at the Lord's on Friday.

However, if Bangladesh bat first, then Pakistan are out even before the game begins. Pakistan's journey so far in this World Cup has been similar to that of 1992, except

HIGHLIGHTS India have beaten England thrice in 7 meetings in World Cup. India and England played out a tie the last time they met in 2011.

Sri Lanka's 20-run win over England had breathed life into their inconsistent campaign but a painful defeat against South Africa, in the very next game, hurt their semifinals chances. Having started the World Cup campaign with little to none victories under their belt, Sri Lanka had no burden of expectations on their shoulders. Their 9-wicket defeat against South Africa confirmed the collective lack of performance and delivery in all departments of the Sri Lankan team. The pitch did nothing to help them either. Their best
