Sri Lanka vs India Highlights, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup: Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul hit fine centuries as India beat Sri Lanka by seven wickets.
Rohit Sharma's record 5th century and KL Rahul's maiden century of World Cup 2019 helped India beat Sri Lanka in their last league match at Headingley in Leeds. Rohit Sharma became the only batsman to score five centuries in a World Cup. He is only the fourth international batsman after Sachin Tendulkar (India - 2003), Mathew Hayden (Australia - 2007) and Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh - 2019) to score over 600 runs in a single edition of the World Cup. After nine matches, India have 15 points and they will play either England or New Zealand in their semi-final match. Earlier, Angelo Mathews' 113 helped Sri Lanka recover from their early blows and post a respectable total of 264/7 on board. (SCORECARD)
