Knee injury ends Kapugedera's Champions Trophy campaign

Sveva Terracina | 09 Giugno, 2017, 01:30

India and Sri Lanka are to become the first team to play 150 ODI matches against each other when they face-off in the Group B match of the ICC Champions Trophy at the Kennington Oval, London today.

While Sri Lanka were well beaten by South Africa in their opening group match, India thumped Pakistan at Edgbaston and will be strong favourites to claim another victory. Kohli knows that it's a one-day competition and momentum can change quickly while playing with a team like Sri Lanka. "He understood the dynamic of the side that we picked in the last game and he was absolutely fine with it", said captain Kohli.

On the other hand, a confident India will aim to go all out and play bold against their neighbours to seal a spot in the semi-finals and take on the number one ranked South Africa on June 12 without pressure. "As I said, it's a clinical performance from us, from the team's point of view, yes, it is indeed a very big win".

India: 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Virat Kohli (captain), 4 Yuvraj Singh, 5 Hardik Pandya, 6 MS Dhoni (wicketkeeper), 7 Kedar Jadhav, 8 Ravindra Jadeja, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10 Umesh Yadav, 11 Jasprit Bumrah.

Mathews' side must beat India at The Oval to keep alive their hopes of reaching the semi-finals, but the odds are against a Sri Lanka team hit by injury and suspension. And why not? Kohli is the present Indian captain and he leads the team with a lot of passion.

Kapugedara was out first ball in Sri Lanka's tournament opener against South Africa, but had been in some form in the approach to the tournament.

"We have sent him for an MRI scan", Matthews said.


India's class spin bowler Ravichandra Ashwin has only played 9 ODI matches for India since 2015.

Mathews told ThePapare.com: "The injury is much better now".

"Shami has not played 50-over cricket for a long time and I am glad he bowled really well in the practice games".

Regular skipper Matthews returned to the playing XI and so have all-rounders Danushka Gunathilaka and Thisara Perera.

Sri Lanka's batting still looks a bit fragile and with Upul Tharanga out of the game with a ban, they would be even more reliant on Matthews and Dinesh Chandimal.

"Once you have a player like that, you need to make sure he's always committed to give 100 percent for the team".

Defending champions India cannot afford to be complacent even though they are up against a Sri Lanka, which can hardly claim to be a great team, feels veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.
