New Delhi: India will be taking on Sri Lanka in Match 44 of the ICC World Cup 2019 at the iconic Lord's cricket ground at London. While Kohli-led India are into the semis on account of them securing twelve points winning six of their eight matches, Sri Lanka who are out of contention for a last four berth would be hoping to cause an uspet over the Indians and end the tournament on a high.

Here are some important statistics from the India Sri Lanka World Cup encounters.
