Sri Lanka will enter the World Cup as one of the most unpredictable teams of the tournament which cannot be taken lightly by the opponents. They have qualified for the World Cup after winning the 2023 ODI World Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe and have been in great form in the ODIs in 2023. Recently, Sri Lanka also entered the final of the 2023 Asia Cup. However, they were bundled out for just 50 runs in the title clash against India and lost the game by 10 wickets.
After an embarrassing defeat against India, Sri Lanka could make some changes in their game plan and have a start for the World Cup.
