Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dhananjaya de Silva. Half volley, down leg side backing away driving, in the air under control to long on for 2 runs, mis-fielded by Pandya. A decent total on the board from Sri Lanka. They will be pleased with that. India were magnificent in the first and last periods of the innings. They had Sri Lanka at 55-4, before Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Thirimanne combined in a brilliant partnership. They controlled the middle overs superbly, with Mathews going on to make his third ODI century. The pick of the bowlers, no surprise, was Jasprit Bumrah. Will that be enough to defend? Or can India chase this down? Find out shortly.

Kuldeep is left to it at the last moment, and is clearly put off by his teammate. It still should've been taken, though, so a let off for Sri Lanka.

Start of Sri Lanka Innings. Welcome to Match 44 of the World Cup. Sri Lanka have won the toss at Headingley and elected to bat first. This is the penultimate group game of the tournament. We already know that India are through to the semi-finals, and Sri Lanka cannot progress. The former could pip Australia to the top of the table if results work in that favour, so that is something to motivate them. If not, this will be good practice for them working towards that knockout game, to iron out any flaws that they might have. Sri Lanka are just playing for pride at this moment. They have had some excellent wins against England and West Indies in this competition, so can still pose a threat to this Indian side. Hopefully we are in for a brilliant day of cricket.

Isuru Udana to Hardik Pandya. Slower length ball, to leg on the front foot pushing, outside edge to third man for 1 run, fielded by Rajitha. That will be that. India breeze home to a dominant seven wicket win. It looked as though Sri Lanka posted a challenging total, but India made it look like a belting pitch to bat on. They were helped by some indifferent bowling and sloppy fielding, but credit has to go to the batsmen. Rohit Sharma notched up his fifth hundred in this World Cup campaign, while Lokesh Rahul got one of his own, too. That finishes Sri Lanka's tournament for this year, which has been slightly disappointing in their view. India, however, go to the semi-finals in cracking form.
