IND vs SL Betting Tips

  • Captain Rohit Sharma hit 87 runs from 101 balls in Match 29 against England and the right-hander has already hit one century and two other scores of fifty and above in the competition. With an ODI batting average of 49.34 from 249 innings, he is our tip for India’s highest run scorer against Sri Lanka. Mohammed Shami only got an opportunity in the team after the injury to Hardik Pandya but has responded with 9 wickets from 102 balls! He is a strong choice for India’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Pathum Nissanka averages 40.11 in ODIs and has been very impressive at the top of the order in this tournament. The right-hander is a reliable presence for Sri Lanka and he is our pick for their highest run scorer in this fixture. Dilshan Madushanka has had an excellent competition with the 23 year old taking at least 2 wickets in five of the six Sri Lanka matches. We expect the opening bowler to be Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker against India.
  • Very few bowlers have the accuracy of Mohammed Shami and we recommend backing him to take over 1.5 wickets in this game.

IND vs SL ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Cricket World Cup 2023

Match 33 of the 2023 Cricket World Cup sees top of the table India take on Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday afternoon. India have won all six of their fixtures so far in the tournament and beat England, the 2019 Champions, by 100 runs in their last match on Sunday. Sri Lanka have lost four and won two games in this campaign and lost to Afghanistan by 7 wickets on Monday in Pune. Read on as we preview this clash which gets underway in Mumbai at 14:00 local time.

No team has been able to keep pace with India’s batters or their varied bowling attack and we do not expect them to come up against too many problems from this depleted Sri Lanka side. Victory in this match could also offer an opportunity to rest players ahead of the final group games.

Sri Lanka looked to be getting themselves back into contention for the top four places in the tournament with wins over the Netherlands and England in the previous games. However, they were well beaten by Afghanistan on Monday and will be up against it in this fixture.

IND vs SL Match Toss Prediction

Both matches at this venue in the 2023 Cricket World Cup have been won easily by the team batting first. Our prediction is that both captains will choose to bat first if they win the toss ahead of this game.

IND vs SL Pitch Report

This is a good batting wicket with the Wankhede Stadium producing a surface which provides good pace and bounce. Quick bowlers will get good carry from this pitch and a par score will be around 370-375.

Due to the location of the stadium next to the sea, the winds allows the bowlers to swing slightly more. South Africa's Gerald Coetzee has picked 6 wickets in 2 matches at this venue in this World Cup.

Mumbai Weather Report

The temperature is expected to not drop below 30 degrees across this game on Thursday. Humidity levels will increase gradually during both the first and second innings of the match.

India Team News & Playing 11

India Team News

Rohit Sharma’s side have had the approach of making minimal changes so far in the tournament with only the injury to Hardik Pandya forcing a change in personnel. With so many players in excellent form and no new injury concerns, we are not expecting any difference in the XI for this game.

India Team Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma - The skipper is only 2 runs away from bringing up 400 runs in the tournament after he struck another ten fours and three sixes in the convincing victory over England.
  • KL Rahul - The keeper-batter averages 50.14 from 63 innings in this format and has scored over 2500 ODI runs. He has a top score of 111 against Sri Lanka.
  • Virat Kohli - Virat Kohli has been in good form in this World Cup and has scored 354 runs at an average of 88.50. After failing in the last ODI against England, he will be looking to score runs in Mumbai.

Virat Kohli 287 275 13437 183 57.91 93.63 48 69
  • Mohammed Shami - The 33 year old right arm fast bowler is quickly becoming un-droppable from this team. He has now taken combined figures of 9/76 from his two appearances in the tournament.
  • Jasprit Bumrah - The quick bowler has the ability to knock over the best batters in the world as was seen when he dismissed Dawid Malan and Joe Root in successive balls during Sunday’s match.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

Sri Lanka Team News

There were two changes for Sri Lanka ahead of their defeat against Afghanistan with Kusal Perera and Lahiru Kumara out of the side and Dimuth Karunaratne coming in at the top of the order with pace bowler Dushmantha Chameera returning to the team for the first time since recovering from injury.

Sri Lanka Team Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka - The 25 year old opener was dismissed four runs short of recording his fifth successive half-century in the tournament but still looked good at the crease. 
  • Kusal Mendis - The captain and keeper-batter looked to be finding his form again when he hit 39 runs in the last match. On his day he is an excellent player with a top score of 122 in ODIs.
  • Sadeera Samarawickrama - He has been consistently scoring runs for Sri Lanka and is the top scorer in this world cup for his team with batting average of 82.75 with one hundred and two fifties.

Sri Lanka Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Pathum Nissanka 46 46 1685 137 40.11 84.46 3 13

Sadeera Samarawickrama 29 26 946 108 41.13 94.78 1 7
  • Dilshan Madushanka - After failing to take a wicket in the win against England, the left-arm quick dismissed both of Afghanistan’s openers on Monday including bowling Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the first over.
  • Kasun Rajitha - The tall pace bowler gave Sri Lanka hope with the wicket of Rahmat Shah in the 28th over and he is yet to go wicketless in the Cricket World Cup 2023.

India vs Sri Lanka Head to Head

India and Sri Lanka have already met five times in ODIs during 2023 with India winning all of the contests. Their last head to head came half-way through September in the final of the 2023 Asia Cup with India winning by 10 wickets after bowling Sri Lanka out for 50.

Who will win India vs Sri Lanka ODI Match?

Even at full strength, Sri Lanka would still be a weaker side than India. As it is, Sri Lanka have had plenty of injuries across the last few months and India are much the stronger team ahead of this match.

IND vs SL Top Team Batsmen

KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill are our tips with the bat for India. Right-handed opener Gill has not made a half-century in either of the last two innings but is still having a brilliant time in ODIs this year where he averages 63.52 from 24 innings. Kohli has hit 354 runs across the tournament with a century as well as three other scores of 50+. The 34 year old has scored 48 ODI centuries and needs 63 further runs in this game to bring up 13500 runs in this format.

Sadeera Samarawickrama, Charith Asalanka, Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis are our batting choices for Sri Lanka. Left-handed Asalanka has a strong ODI record and averages 40.08 from 41 innings. He is not intimidated by strong bowling attacks as seen when he hit 79 against South Africa earlier in the competition. Samarawickrama is Sri Lanka’s leading run scorer in the tournament and is averaging 82.75 with 331 runs coming from six innings at a strike-rate of 104.41.

IND vs SL Top Team Bowlers

For India, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami are our bowling picks. Yadav is a left-arm wrist spinner and very hard to face in this format. He comes into this match after dismissing the dangerous pair of Jos Buttler and Liam Livingstone in the last match. Jadeja produced the best economy rate of the five man bowling attack in the win over England and he has not conceded more than 48 runs in each innings in the tournament whilst taking 8 wickets.

For Sri Lanka, Dushmantha Chameera, Dilshan Madushanka, Kasun Rajitha and Maheesh Theekshana are our selections with the ball for Sri Lanka. Chameera bowled with good pace on his return to the side against Afghanistan and has format best figures of 5/16. Spinner Theekshana is 3 wickets away from bringing up 50 dismissals in ODIs and has taken 4x four-wicket hauls across his career in this format.

🏆 India vs Sri Lanka Prediction

It would be a huge surprise if India were to slip up in this game as they have been so strong in the tournament and Sri Lanka could not get the better of Afghanistan in their last match. Our prediction is for India to be too good with both the bat and the ball and for Sri Lanka to struggle throughout. No team has really made it uncomfortable for India in the competition and we do not expect that to change in this fixture. We are backing India to win on Thursday in Mumbai.
