World Cup 2019, Sri Lanka vs West Indies (SL vs WI) Buildup: England’s victory on Sunday against giants India saw more than one consequence – the hosts are at a better position to qualify for the semifinals and Sri Lanka’s campaign comes to an end at ICC Men Cricket World Cup 2019. Sri Lanka take on West Indies at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street on Monday as both sides play for pride. Other than the win over England, Dimuth Karunaratne’s side hasn’t shown extraordinary performance in the tournament, with two of their matches against big sides getting washed out. They sit at the seventh spot with just six points.

Meanwhile, Jason Holder-led side will look to finish on a high after being knocked out of the tournament.

Though they have been impressive in parts, the side has failed to hold on to their nerves in tight games and ended up enduring heartbreaking losses.
