Live Betting: India v. Sri LankaPublished July 9, 2013 by OCR Editor
India plays Sri Lanka in final tri-nations league match at 1pm UK time today
India plays subcontinent arch-rivals Sri Lanka today in the final match of their tri-nations cricket series also involving the West Indies, and the equation is simple: if India win, they play Sri Lanka in the final, but if they lose the Sri Lankans will play the Windies instead.
Rain is expected in the Trinidad and Tobago capital of Port of Spain on Tuesday, so if the game is washed out it will be moved to a reserve day on Wednesday. Should rain strike consistently on both days, the match will be declared a wash-out and the Indians will be sent packing from the tournament.
India has at least a couple of indicators on their side: they have a 24-14 head-to-head record against SL in the past five years, and their opponents will be playing for a third consecutive day after their previous match against the Windies stretched over Sunday and Monday.
