The tickets for the India vs Sri Lanka 2023 World Cup game at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will go live on 12 pm on October 26th (Thursday). The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced it via their social media handle on Thursday as the two sides will hope to gain supremacy on a good batting strip.
The iconic Wankhede Stadium had also staged the 2011 World Cup final between the two sides. The hosts had won the match convincingly as the skipper MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir played key roles with the bat, scoring a pair of 90+ score after the top-order collapse.
Hence, fans will hope to see the Men in Blue, captained by Rohit Sharma, again reign supreme in the high-octane clash.
Sri Lanka to face England in a must-win clash at the Chinnaswamy Stadium:
Meanwhile, the Island nation will face defending champions England in an almost do-or-die clash on Thursday (October 26th) at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Sri Lanka, who have lost their regular captain Dasun Shanaka due to an injury, secured their first win over the Netherlands after three consecutive losses.
England also face the prospect of group-stage elimination after a 229-run drubbing against South Africa at the Wankhede Stadium. Given the beating their net run-rate has taken even five wins in as many matches might not be enough for them to sneak into the playoffs.
