Match Prediction : India expected to win this match...... To know more about our prediction and tips read below details.
Good news for all that there are no chances of rain at Leeds, clouds will be there but they are harmless. The atmosphere will be cool and the temperature will be around 18 to 20 degrees Celsius. The humidity will be around the 60s at the start but will come down to the 40s by the end of the match.
The pitch is unpredictable as it helped the spinners to a large extent but in the previous game, it was not helpful for spinners. The track last time produced 599 runs. If a similar sort of a strip is dished out, then a high scoring game can be expected. Toss winning team should opt to bat first.
The Lankans is already out from the tournament after losing match against England but the Islanders would be looking to salvage some pride. Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera are in a good form. Avishka Fernando scored a ton in the erstwhile encounter and he would be in a positive frame of mind. Kusal Mendis and Angelo Mathews can also do better. In the bowling department, Lasith Malinga has been their standout performer with 12 wickets. Dhananjaya de Silva and pacer Isuru Udana have gotten five wickets each, but have been far from effective.

This match will be a pre semi-final practice match for India. After having already qualified, India may make a few changes even if they want to be conservative. Jasprit Bumrah needs to be fresh for the semis and hence, he might be rested. Ravindra Jadeja, who played the warm-ups may get a chance. KL Rahul got a 77 in the last game and that would keep him in good stead. Rohit Sharma isn’t showing signs of slowing down, having scored 544 runs with four tons in the mega event. Rishabh Pant also showed promise in the first two games. The focus will again be on MS Dhoni and his approach while batting. Dinesh Karthik is likely to get one opportunity before the knockouts. Mohammed Shami’s death bowling has been concerning, but he has been picking up wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal is in excellent form with 11 wickets. Even Bhuvneshwar Kumar was good in the Bangladesh game.
