India are the team to beat at World Cup, says Clive Lloyd

West Indies vs India - Highlights & Stats World Cup updates: India a point away from semis, England in a spot, Pakistan & NZ have a shot

On July 1 the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will witness a battle between Sri Lanka and West Indies at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street.

This was Sri Lanka's third victory in the tournament and while they can no longer qualify for the semi-finals, they have already upset hosts England and de Silva believes they can claim another scalp against Virat Kohli's side at Headingley on Saturday. The Opposition vociferously objected to the saffronisation of the men's cricket team jersey that the players will likely wear for the upcoming match against England.

"We want to create that winning culture".

Both the teams have met 6 times in the history of ICC World Cup; where West Indies won 4 times and Sri Lanka 2.

"It's important for us to find the winning ways and find the winning formula going forward, so it is important for us to play this game as hard as possible". The guys are still up for it.

Just as Jasprit Bumrah with his yorkers shone in the last but one match against Afghanistan, Mohammed Shami proved the mettle of India's bowling in the latest clash with West Indies, which was one of the most emphatic wins for India in the series so far.

It was their latest failure to rise to the occasion in the tournament and Reifer conceded they haven't coped well when games are up for grabs. I think we're still learning, couple of young guys on the team got a great future for them. You look back at our tournament, we played well against Pakistan.

Australia are still the only side mathematically certain of their place in the last four, with India, New Zealand and England now occupying the other top-four slots.

"Make early inroads into their batting line-up - where they only have five specialist batsmen - and you have a chance", he said.

"I thought we need to seize the key moments in the game". At crucial times we dropped a few crucial chances.

"And then collectively, you know, we didn't bat properly".

"I have been impressed by India - I think the victor of the whole thing is going to be one of them or Australia. It is important that we keep building what we did well here as well in the World Cup because we did some things well".

Reifer revealed that there had been some "soul searching" in the dressing room as the players and management looked to pinpoint the reasons behind a disappointing campaign.
