ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Sri Lanka knocked out of ICC World Cup 2019 (CWC). Lankan’s will play in their eighth game against the West Indies on Monday (July 01). But the team has heard the bad news before coming to the field. Because last night, England’s victory against India has confirmed the departure of Lasith Malinga from the World Cup 2019.
Sri Lanka will be able to earn 10 points to win their last two matches. Nevertheless, the English must stay behind at the net run rate. Earlier, South Africa, West Indies and Afghanistan went off the field. As Australia’s only team, the semi-finals are confirmed.
In a tweet after India’s rate yesterday, the ICC confirmed that Sri Lanka are no longer in the semifinals.
