IND vs SL Super 4 Match 4 Preview
The Super 4 round is underway, and if India secures a victory in this match, it will secure a spot in the final. Indian fans are ecstatic about the team’s performance thus far, with the standout performance coming against Pakistan in the last match. After defeating Nepal and experiencing a no-result group stage match against Pakistan due to rain, India comfortably advanced to the Super 4 stage.
The opening match of the Super 4 stage was a rematch against Pakistan. India made a dominant statement with the bat, opting to bat first. Virat Kohli, the run machine, once again showcased why he’s considered the king of cricket and consistently performs exceptionally well against Pakistan. KL Rahul’s return to ODIs with a remarkable century added to the delight of fans and the Indian team’s staff. Kuldeep Yadav’s brilliant five-wicket haul indicates he’s in prime form and is likely to feature prominently in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2023.
Several Indian players have delivered outstanding performances. Rohit Sharma has notched back-to-back half-centuries, while Shubman Gill has produced consecutive fifties, indicating that the openers are in excellent form. Virat Kohli’s incredible records at this venue are nothing short of astonishing. While Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja have contributed to various aspects of the game, their impact cannot be underestimated.
The bowling department has been a masterclass. Jasprit Bumrah has led the pace attack exceptionally well, and Mohammed Siraj has impressed with his disciplined line and length. Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav is currently at the peak of his abilities and aims to maintain this form in the upcoming match as well.
Team Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka’s performance in the tournament has been inconsistent. During the group stages, they had a decent start by defeating Bangladesh in their opening match. Their encounter with Afghanistan was a thrilling contest, and Sri Lanka was fortunate to secure a narrow 2-run victory, allowing them to advance to the Super 4 stage.
In the Super 4 stage, Sri Lanka faced Bangladesh once again, and this time, they put up a more commendable performance. While their batting was solid, they did face some challenges towards the end of their innings. They set a target of 257 runs and had to defend it. It was their bowlers, including Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana, and skipper Dasun Shanka, who played pivotal roles in securing the victory. Ultimately, Sri Lanka emerged victorious, winning the match by 21 runs.
Sri Lanka’s top-order batsmen, including Pathum Nissanka and Dimuth Karunaratne, have struggled to provide the desired start, resulting in pressure on the middle-order. Charith Asalanka and Sadeera Samarawickrama stepped up to rescue the team with a crucial partnership that set the foundation for the win. In terms of bowling, Sri Lanka faced challenges due to the absence of their star bowlers, but Pathirana and Theekshana have emerged as their standout performers. Despite their ups and downs, Sri Lanka is still searching for a complete team performance.
