The ICC World Cup 2019 is down to few matches now and the race to the top four is alive and gearing up. Pakistan, Bangladesh, & Sri Lanka are fighting for the fourth spot on the points table. The next fixture of the ICC World Cup 2019 is between Sri Lanka and West Indies.
Sri Lanka and West Indies will play the 39th match of the ICC World Cup 2019 at The Riverside Stadium, Chester-le-Street, Durham. Sri Lanka needs to win both of their upcoming matches including one against India.
On the other hand, West Indies have struggled a lot to cruise through the victory despite coming to close encounter. Just like Sri Lanka, West Indies’ bowling also has done reasonably well in this tournament, but not in death overs.
Both teams are going through their rebuilding phase as the players are not much experienced except a few. In their upcoming contest, both teams need to work hard on their both sides, especially batting. So far, batting has cracked under pressure in both teams.
