For the Windies, Andre Russell took two wickets for 33 runs in four overs while Dwayne Bravo took one wicket for 42 runs in four overs. With just one win in three games, defending champions the Windies need to win to retain their semi-final chances. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka’s semi-final hopes of winning just one of their last four matches had come to an end.
The Windies are out today with no changes to the team that played last game. Meanwhile, Lihara Kumar was replaced by Binura Fernando in the final XI. Australia and South Africa, who have won three of their last four matches, are currently second and third in the group, respectively. The Windies can look to the semi-finals if they beat Sri Lanka today, win their last match against Australia and beat South Africa against England.
