India became the first team to secure a spot in the ODI World Cup semifinals, thanks to an impressive performance by both batsmen and bowlers. The star of the match was Mohammed Shami who took four wickets in a mere three overs during his opening spell, leading to Sri Lanka being bowled out for a mere 55 runs in 19.4 overs. Virat Kohlialso played a significant role by scoring 88 runs, and his partnership with Gill amassed 189 runs for India’s second wicket.Shubman Gill scored 92 and Shreyas Iyer contributed a rapid 82 off 56 balls, propelling the team to a total of 357-8.
India’s 302-run victory was their biggest in the history of the World Cup and second biggest overall. The biggest victory in ODIs in terms of runs also belongs to India when they inflicted a 317-run defeat on the same opponents in Thiruvananthapuram in January this year.
