ICC World Cup 2019 IND vs SL highlights: India thumps Sri Lanka by seven wickets

India and Sri Lanka faced each other in the penultimate match of the group stage of ICC World Cup 2019. In the end, the 'Men in blue' thumped Sri Lanka by 7 wickets in what was a largely one-sided contest, to seal their place in the top two of points table. Rohit Sharma became the first batsman to score five centuries in a single edition of World Cup. KL Rahul notched up his first World Cup hundred to compliment his opening partner. India march on to the semifinals brimming with confidence. Lasith Malinga played in his last ever World Cup match, and the 'slinger' would have liked to sign off with a win. But still, the legend gave his all in the tournament, carrying Lanka's bowling attack single-handedly. What a servant he has been for Sri Lankan cricket!

    Rohit Sharma is the Man of the Match

    "I wasn't thinking about milestones, my job is to keep my head straight and get the team towards the finishing line. When you are in, shot selection becomes very important, I try to calculate how I want to go forward, and it has paid dividends, You have to be disciplined in batting, and I've learned from my mistakes in the past."
