In the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 clash at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Thursday, a formidable Team India is set to face a struggling Sri Lankan side. The Men in Blue have displayed championship-level performances in all their matches, convincingly defeating Australia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, New Zealand, Bangladesh, and England.

IND vs SL: World Cup journey

Their recent victory against the Jos Buttler-led side served as a warning to Sri Lanka. It marked the first time in the World Cup that India was asked to bat first, demonstrating their ability to win while setting a target. Despite setting a seemingly modest total of 229/9, their strong bowling performance secured a resounding 100-run victory.

The 1996 World Champions began the tournament on a disappointing note with three consecutive defeats against Australia, Pakistan, and South Africa. They later bounced back with consecutive wins against the Netherlands and England but faced a setback with a seven-wicket loss to Afghanistan in their previous game. Sri Lanka has not won a game against India since the 2007 edition, and they find themselves at the same venue where they lost to India in the 2011 World Cup final by six wickets.

As we look ahead to the India vs. Sri Lanka match, here are some potential records and milestones to watch for:
