Two teams who came up with completetly different reputations into the World Cup are going to lock their horns here at Leeds.
India came up with the expectation of winning the Worldcup and now have sealed a place in semis.In other side Sri Lankan ODI team came up after probably the worst 4 years of their cricket history after the retirement of their senior players.
But this World Cup has become a turning point to the Lankan lions as they have been able to seal the 6 th posistion in the table by beating England,West Indies and Afghanistan and with additional two washed out games.
If not for rain Lankans could have surely give an amazing fight for the Top 4 to join with them.Indian team is in the form of their life but the 7-4 combination with only 7 proper batsmen has add some weakness to the batting line up compared to the other teams with long middle order.
But Rohit Sharma and Virat Kholi has been able to hold the innings together for now.But MS Dhoni not being able to be effective specially in chases has become one of the resons for most of the expectators to say they are not yet upto mark.
This will be the final battle of arguably the best limited over bowler Lasith Malinga and the battle between him and the little master Virat Kholi for the final time will be a treat to watch for sure.
