Highlights of India vs. Sri Lanka, World Cup 2023: On Thursday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, India put on yet another brutal display, crushing Sri Lanka by 302 runs. With this result, India became the first country to qualify for the semifinals and they won their seventh straight game.

India was asked to bat first, and three half-centuries from Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill, and Shreyas Iyer guided the team to an impressive score of 357/8. Following Rohit Sharma’s cheap dismissal in the opening over by Dilshan Madushanka, who went on to claim five wickets, Kohli and Gill each scored half-centuries on their way to an incredible partnership of 189 runs. After Madushanka interrupted the wicket-taking stand and prevented both set batsmen from reaching their century, Sri Lanka recovered thanks to the wickets of KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav. Iyer, though, returned to brilliant form and hammered off a 56-ball 82 to guarantee that India reached 300 before two thunderous strokes from Ravindra Jadeja in the closing stages lifted the total above 350.

Then, with a strike on the first ball, Jasprit Bumrah gave India the ideal start. Then Mohammed Siraj broke the celebration, taking two wickets in an over to reduce Sri Lanka to 3-4. Siraj had picked 6/21 in the Asia Cup 2023 finals. The outstanding Mohammed Shami finished with five wickets as the Lankan innings was done in 19.4 overs.India vs Sri Lanka Live Score, IND vs SL World Cup 2023: “Very happy knowing that we have officially qualified now.
