Rohit Sharma hits fifth century as India beat Sri Lanka

The first two T20 games will be in Colombo on August 31 and September 2 at the Premadasa Stadium while the final match will be on September 6 in Kandy. He struck some form last game slamming 96 in South Africa's win over Sri Lanka and will want to finish the tournament off with a similar show.

Sharma was dismissed shortly afterwards, caught by Angelo Mathews off the bowling of Rajitha. "He is still hungry for runs", Sangakkara said while commentating for the match.

"We've showcased a lot of our young talent, and I think the likes of Shaheen Afridi, Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq, Shadab Khan, the list goes on and on".

"I took about a week, week-and-a-half's break after the IPL". "And to be honest I think some people will not be very happy with that. Every day is a new day". His run-aggregate in this World Cup is the fifth-highest of all-time after Sachin Tendulkar (673 in 2003), Matthew Hayden (659 in 2007), Mahela Jayawardene (548 in 2007) and Martin Guptill (547 in 2015). However, as far as South Africa is concerned, they have had a below par World Cup with only two wins so far in the tournament.

With the 2011 World Cup final in minds, Sri Lanka meet India as they stop India from topping the group stage.

"We beat England, then we got rained out against Sri Lanka, and we didn't play a game for nine days". But that's what consistent performances and hard work get you. I am really proud of this team as a captain, they are incredible people.

"The focus has to be within and we are confidence of our skill sets. We need to take ruthless decisions in a review".

"After the previous incident we were assured by West Yorkshire Police there would not be repeat of this issue, so we are very dissatisfied it has happened again".

He argued - perhaps self-servingly - that head-to-head record should be the next tiebreaker, which meant Pakistan would have advanced to the semifinals, having beaten New Zealand by six wickets in Birmingham. The opposition has never mattered. "The way he played, this team could have been in a different zone than where we are standing right now", Mashrafe said.

World Cup 2019, Bangladesh vs Pakistan: Pakistan may have not qualified for the semi-finals, but have ended their campaign with pride.

Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne has won the toss and elected to bat first against India at Headingley in Leeds.

After a few months, Agarwal has more reasons to cheer as he has been picked to play in the 2019 World Cup.
