Sri Lanka will lock horns with West Indies in the ongoing ICC Men's Cricket World Cup at Riverside Durham on Monday.
Sri Lankan team is almost out of the knock-out stages of the World Cup as they are at the seventh position of the teams standing with six points. In case, Sri Lanka somehow manages to win their next two matches including one against Windies, then they will move to ten points. Apart from winning their games, they have to hope for the loss of Pakistan, England and Bangladesh in their upcoming fixtures. Sri Lankan skipper Dimuth Karunaratne played a knock of 97 runs against Australia and contributed unbeaten 52 runs against New Zealand. Karunaratne has 283 runs in the tournament and he is in great form and leading the team in batting. The 35-year-old pacer, Lasith Malinga has bagged four wickets against England, taking his total to nine wickets in the World Cup so far.
While on the other hand, the Caribbean team is out of the World Cup as they stand at the bottom of the standings at the ninth spot. In their seven matches so far Windies only won a single game and hold three points. Although the team displayed the poor performance in the tournament till now, they will look to end it on a winning note. Sheldon Cottrell is known for his signature style - marching and stopping with a salute. He is a vital player for the Caribbean side. In the last match, Cottrell rattled New Zealand's top-order and scalped four wickets.
