Sri Lanka and the West Indies might both be officially knocked out of the 2019 World Cup – but there’s no such thing as a dead rubber in cricket’s biggest tournament. Join The Roar for live scores and ball-by-ball coverage from 7:30pm (AEST).

Sri Lanka’s dream of an unlikely run into the semi-finals was snuffed out with England’s win over India on Sunday, though the fact they were still in with a shot at the top four heading into the home stretch of the group stages would have surprised many pundits heading in.

From a team in crisis with a new captain, a coach under siege and a raft of queries about their talent with bat and ball alike, the 1996 champions have exceeded expectations to record a pair of wins – the most recent their stirring upset triumph over England that shook the Cup.

Against the West Indies, they have what could be their last real chance of a third victory at the tournament, given they play a wounded India in their final game, so you can safely say Lasith Malinga, Dimuth Karunaratne and co. will be looking at this game as their World Cup final.

The West Indies’ tournament started brightly, with a rampant performance over Pakistan followed up by defeat to Australia that could – and arguably should – have been much more.

But since then, the Calypso Kings have fallen back to earth, failing to record another win for the tournament, and their most recent defeat to India was the most abject yet.

After letting them off the hook late with the ball – India made 49 runs from the last 5 overs to reach 268 – the Windies surrendered meekly with bat in hand, bowled out for a paltry 143 with no batsman passing 31.

Against a Sri Lankan side whose bowling is their strength, despite the loss of opening quick Nuwan Pradeep to chicken pox, Jason Holder’s men will need a much better effort with the bat to emerge victorious, and on a Chester-le-Street ground where South Africa handled the Sri Lankan spinners effortlessly last week, conditions may well be in their favour to do just that.

Prediction
When they played the Proteas here last Friday, Sri Lanka were undone by the quicks, and it just so happens that the West Indies are packed with them. Should the pitch offer the same assistance to the Windies’ pace battalion, and Chris Gayle return to his form against New Zealand, the Sri Lankans may not have an answer.

West Indies by 7 wickets/95 runs.

Can the Windies salvage some pride and break a five-match World Cup losing streak? Or will Sri Lanka cause another upset and continue to defy expectations? Tune into The Roar’s live blog from 7:30pm (AEST), and be sure to leave us your thoughts on the match in the comments section below.
