Team India has qualified for the semi-finals, World Cup 2019. Everything seems to be going well for the team. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, seems to have lost the ability to play for pride too; probably making this match a dull one. But that does not apply to us fantasy cricket players. Pick your best team and win big on the Fantain Fantasy. Here is all you need to read for both the teams before picking your Fantain XI.

Team News:


With an average of 90, Rohit Sharma is officially the highest scorer of the World Cup this year with 544 runs to his credit. Not to mention 4 centuries. He gets sufficient support from Virat Kohli and to an extent, KL Rahul.

Shikar Dhawan, if he were still here, would have been a major contributor as well.

The bowling has been pretty good too with Bumrah, Shami and Chahal taking the lead. Hardik Pandya has played very well with both the bat and the ball.

Update: Dhoni is fine and ready to play the game. His thumb injury is healing.

Predicted XI: MS Dhoni (wk), Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Kedar Jadhav, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Lokesh Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant

Sri Lanka

With 3 wins from 8 matches, Sri Lanka has not had a great tournament. The only positive is that they did slightly better than South Africa and the West Indies, who were total disappointments.

So far, the top contributors to the team are Kusal Perera, Dimuth Karunaratne, Malinga and Dhananjaya de Silva.

Sri Lanka beat West Indies in their last match and would like to retain the same lineup against India.

Predicted XI: Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews, Isuru Udana, Lahiru Thirimanne, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Kusal Perera (wk), Kusal Mendis, Jeffrey Vandersay, Kasun Rajitha, Avishka Fernando

Top Picks

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli: The smashing duo of India have made a tremendous mark in the scoring pattern of the team. They will be at their best at all times.

Bumrah and Shami: The two pacers, accompanied by spinner Chahal have managed to make the most of the otherwise flat British pitch. Some turns are still there.

A Fernando: He hit a century against the West Indies. He is in good form and is likely to hit a big score in this match.

Hardik Pandya: It is always good to have him in your Fantain Fantasy Lineup. He can bring points with both the bat and the ball.

Fantain Fantasy XI

Batsmen: Rohit Sharma, Kohli, KL Rahul, A Fernando

Bowlers: Bumrah, Shami, Malinga, Udana

All-Rounders: Hardik Pandya, Dhananjaya De Silva

You can pick Dhoni over Perera.

This is our Fantain Fantasy XI but you’re the real expert.
